Queens, NY - Northern Boulevard

Scene along Northern Boulevard in the Flushing neighborhood of New York City's Queens borough -- one of five such county-like political jurisdictions in the sprawling city. The origin of the "Flushing" name is interesting: The settlement was named after the Dutch city of Vlissingen. By 1657, the residents called the place "Vlishing." When the British took control of the city, they appropriated, but mispronounced, "Vlishing" as "Flushing," and the name stuck. Photo by Carol Highsmith, 2018.
