My Flushing pt. 2

Take a walk around my neighborhood: Flushing, NYC (pt. 2).

Main Street, downtown Flushing. This is center of the largest Chinese community in New York City, and the second largest in the United States (after San Francisco).[*]

The old Caldor building on Roosevelt Avenue and Main Street. Apparently the chain of discount stores went bankrupt in the late '90s. Just a couple of years ago Wal-Mart was scoping out the place, but fortunately, eventually backed down.

This place on 39th, past the Flushing Mall, looks like a cool, little lounge. I've never been here , but I love the simplicity of the sign.

This guy is some of Flushing's wildlife.
