Roosevelt Ave.: A Main Street For Queens Latinos

16A Roosevelt Ave2
While Queens’ Latin American communities are located throughout the Borough, with a heavy
concentration in Corona, Elmhurst and Jackson Heights, the streetscapes of the community can
be captured down Roosevelt Avenue. Running from Woodside through to Flushing Meadows
Corona Park, Latin American communities are well-represented on Roosevelt Avenue, with
restaurants, mom and pop shops and community spaces like the Corona Plaza at 103rd Street
all becoming gathering places for friends and family. Photos by Luis Gronda and Joe Marvilli
