The sights and sounds of Queens, from the Vernon−Jackson subway station to Flushing’s Main Street, can now be seen and heard in one room in the Queens Center Mall in Elmhurst.
With a tap of a finger, individuals can listen to the music of the Romanian community living in Sunnyside or see pictures of Queens from the early 20th century at “Queens Beats,” an exhibit that opened Monday in the mall’s Queens Visitors Center.
Canonge said he hopes this exhibit will inspire people to venture out into Queens, to pay attention to languages on the subway, and to take in the sights of Queens — everything from a Filipino market in Woodside to a Mexican restaurant in Corona.
Does this guy think that people who shop at Queens Center Mall don't realize that there are different languages spoken here and different ethnic enclaves in the borough? Sorry, but I don't get it. I bet borough hall funded this, too.
