    Actually Flushing is not a Chinatown, it is part of the great ethnoburb that is Queens. Urban Chinatowns are marked by the presence of poorer Chinese immigrants: 60% are foreign born and have a high school education or less. About 50% of them speak only Mandarin, Fujianese or Cantonese. Wages are fully 50% below regional averages and 20% live in poverty.

    It is a different story in ethnoburbs like Flushing where more than one-third of the Chinese-Americans are business professionals compared to 14% in Manhattan. More than one-third also have college degrees compared to 7% in Manhattan. You will have numerous but delightful options in Flushing:
