Trip Overview
Overview

Manhattan may have name-brand recognition and Brooklyn a certain cachet, but Queens is the city’s largest and most diverse borough. It’s a place where new immigrant communities can still afford to put down roots, bringing their food traditions with them. In collaboration with Culinary Backstreets, we’ll take a deep dive into Queens’ rich neighborhood life, including a banquet dinner in the borough’s bustling Chinatown, a behind-the-scenes visit to a Central Asian Jewish bakery, and a stop at a Colombian “fast food” joint for a South American twist on the New York hot dog.

Highlights
  • Bustling night markets
  • Hidden restaurants
  • Local culinary gems

Additional Info

Arrival/Departure

Our trip begins with a welcome dinner in Flushing on Friday, October 4. We recommend you arrive in New York by 2 p.m. on the 4th, so you can settle into your accommodations and make your way to Flushing to meet our guide and group in time for dinner. Our trip concludes in the evening on Sunday, October 7. If leaving New York directly after our tour, we recommend departing the following morning, on Monday, October 8. If you'd like to extend your trip, we’re happy to provide suggestions for things to do and see in the city on your own.

Activity Level

Travelers should be reasonably fit and feel comfortable walking 2 to 4 miles each day, climbing stairs and remaining on their feet for long periods of time. Keep in mind that Queens is a bustling and crowded place and, though our pace will be relaxed, other New Yorkers like to walk fast!

Accommodations

We recommend staying at the Parc Hotel in Flushing, Queens, which will serve as a central location for the tour. When making reservations, members of our group will receive a 15 percent discount (discount code will be provided in your deposit confirmation). Email trips@atlasobscura.com if you’d like assistance with booking. If you choose to stay elsewhere, we strongly recommend staying in Queens. We are happy to suggest neighborhoods for booking alternate accommodations.
