We went there to see GALUMPHA. Very easy to get to but parking was not so easy. They do not have facilities (except for members) and finding a spot on the street was challenging. Leave time.
The show we saw was up a flight of stairs. Don’t know if they have an elevator. The restroom was clean.

Had a look at an exhibition they had on here and enjoyed it. There was also a free concert by the Queens Symphony one Friday night, which was very enjoyable.

Flushing, founded in 1645, was one of the first Dutch settlements on Long Island. Today, it is one of the largest and most diverse neighborhoods in New York City.

Flushing's diversity is reflected by the numerous ethnic groups that reside there, including people of Asian, Hispanic, Middle Eastern, European, and African American ancestry, as well as Ashkernazi Mizrahi, Sephardi and Bukhari Jewish communities. Flushing is among the most religiously diverse communities in America. There are "over 200 places of worship in this small urban neighborhood .

Flushing's Chinatown has grown rapidly enough to become the second-largest Chinatown outside of Asia.

Flushing has many landmark buildings.Flushing Town Hall The building houses a concert hall and cultural center and is one of the sites designated along the Queens Historical Society's Freedom Mile.

Other Landmarks include the Bowne House ( 1645 ), Kingsland Homestead built in 1785 the old Quaker Meeeting House the oldest house of worship in New York City ( 1694 ), the Lewis H. Latimer House 1887, Latimer an African American inventor lived here from 1903 to his death in 1928. the Fitzgerald- Ginsberg Mansion..

The Unisphere12-story high, stainless steel globe that served as the centerpiece for the 1964 World’d Fair..that was also the site for the 1938 World’d Fair.

The beautiful Queens Botanical Gardens on Main Street has been in operation continuously since its opening as an exhibit at the 1939 World's Fair. The Botanical Garden carries on Flushing's nearly three centuries long horticultural tradition, dating back to its once famed tree nurseries and seed farms.

In 1657, while Flushing was still a Dutch settlement, a document known as the “ Flushing Remonstrance was created by Edward Hart, the town clerk, where some thirty ordinary citizens protested a ban imposed by Peter Stuyvesant, the director general of New Amsterdam, forbidding the harboring of Quakers. The Flushing Remonstrance cited the Flushing Town charter of 1645 which promised liberty of conscience.

Today, Flushing abounds in houses of worship, ranging from the Dutch colonial epoch Quaker Meeting House, St. Andrew Avellino Roman Catholic Church, St. George's Episcopal Church, the Free Synagogue of Flushing, St. Mel Roman Catholic Church, St.Michael's Catholic Church, St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church – the largest Greek Orthodox Church in the United States, Hindu Temple Society of North America, and the Muslim Center of New York.
But what make Flushing really special is the food..here you have the most diverse the best ethnic reastaurants in the New York area..

Prior to becoming part of New York City, Town Hall served as the seat of government for the town of Flushing. It was constructed in 1862 in the then popular Rundbogenstile (round arch style) of brick and brownstone. The street level has some large rooms and the second, a large auditorium formerly used for public meetings and court sessions.

Town Hall is presently occupied by the Flushing Council on Culture and the Arts that presents various kinds of concerts and small exhibitions. This is a local attraction that poses no serious competition to the world class cultural institutions of Manhattan. It is located on Northern Boulevard at Linden Place, just across from the ancient Flushing Quaker Meeting House from 1694.
