Queens is New York City's answer to suburbia. And while the many families living there would happily agree, there's plenty more to it than that. More languages are spoken in this borough alone (among them, Chinese, Korean, Italian, Greek, Russian, Tagalog, and Creole French) than in any other single place on the planet. The ethnically steeped (and relatively affordable) housing markets of Astoria, Dutch Kil...ls, Hunters Point, and Sunnyside are equally beloved by residents old and new. Long Island City is increasingly referred to as "the next Williamsburg." Sleek waterfront high-rises, modern amenities, and even a flea market make it a go-to for young professionals looking to carve out a place of their own just outside the midtown fray.View more
