Where a stroll around the block can put you in touch with the whole world
Traveling on New York’s No. 7 train – The “International Express” – from Manhattan into Queens is like traveling the world. The 18 stations that dot the train’s route take riders through neighbourhoods representing 190 nations and ethnic enclaves with an extraordinary international array of culture and food as well as past some important art and entertainment institutions.
You will pass Irish neighbourhoods in Sunnyside to Little India in Jackson Heights and the Korean and Chinese sections of Flushing. The train has for a good reason been dubbed the “International Express” and it’s listed as one of 15 sites on the National Millennium Trail of the United States.
