New York City is known as a "melting pot" due to its diversity and the many cultures seen throughout the city. The borough of Queens is also a "melting pot" in its own right. Diversity can be seen every day in Queens' restaurants and malls but a sundry of culture and tradition can also be seen in Queens' parks and playgrounds. If you are lucky enough to travel through Queens and explore our parks, you will find recreation and cultural activities that will take you on a journey to different areas of the globe.
Let's now gawk at ethnic communities of Queens like we would species in a zoo and describe their behavior and diet:
We can start right over the 59th Street Bridge. Athens Square Park in Astoria is located in the heart of the Greek community. Athens Square Park has hosted various Greek inspired programming. Annually, Greek cultural organizations plan Greek festivals where you can eat gyros and baklava and relax as you listen to Greek musicians. You will also hear the sound of the Greek language as people sit in the modeled Greek amphitheater and watch traditional Greek dancing. "Opa!"
Great, where next?
