    I’ve lived in Queens all my life and the only thing I can’t stand about Queens is the name Queens. We should change the name to something that can unify us and give us something to be proud to rally around. The name Queens was given to us by people who still bowed down to the Queen of England and the name just doesn’t fit us anymore. We won’t be the first borough to change its name. Staten Island was called the borough of Richmond until the 1970’s. In New York City it is practically a tradition for neighborhoods to change their name, including the name of our city which used to be called New Amsterdam. Yet we have been stuck with the name Queens for over 300 years. Our borough is a very distinctive place and deserves a name that has distinction.
