Flushing

Flushing, founded in 1645 as one of the first Dutch settlements on Long Island, is a lower, middle, and upper middle class and commercial neighborhood in the north-central region of the New York City borough of Queens, in the United States.

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 Jewish peoples. It is part of the Fifth Congressional District, which encompasses the entire northeastern shore of Queens County, and extends into neighboring Nassau County. Flushing is served by five railroad stations on the Long Island Rail Road Port Washington Branch, and the New York City Subway IRT Flushing Line (and thus the 7 train) has its terminus at Main Street. The intersection of Main Street and Roosevelt Avenue is the third busiest intersection in New York City, behind only Times Square and Herald Square.

Flushing is part of Queens Community Board 7 and is bounded by Flushing Meadows-Corona Park to the West, Francis Lewis Boulevard to the East, Long Island Expressway (LIE) to the South and Willets Point Boulevard to the North.

ZIP Codes beginning with 113- are administered from a sectional center at Flushing Post Office. The 113- area extends west into Jackson Heights, south into Elmhurst, Queens, Glendale and Forest Hills, and east into Little Neck.
