Queens of the Boroughs

See more of the largest and most diverse borough in New York City as we explore it! It also happens to be where I am from!

Join my friend Joanna and I as we have a little fun in Astoria, Queens. We head to the park, walk over the Tri-Boro Bridge, show you a few places we like to grab some food, and more.

Bonus clip of Joanna and I roaming around Astoria, Queens.

Joanna and I explore the area of Queens I am from, East Elmhurst and show you some of the great history of it and even do something a little risqué.

We head to the biggest park in Queens, Flushing Meadows Corona Park and take you around exploring it as well as a local bodega.

Joanna and I head back to Flushing Meadows Corona Park to check out the first annual Only in Queens Summer Festival with great food and performances by Ginuwine, Mack Wilds, and Kid ‘n Play.

Joanna and I head over to the Queens International Night Market and try out food from all over the world in one place!

In this episode we head over to Fort Totten in Bayside. We explore and take a walk on some rocks that end up in me busting my butt!

We headed over to Flushing known for its Asian influence and had some Korean BBQ for lunch and Thai inspired ice cream!

Come with us as we explore Long Island City with its sweeping views of the NYC Skyline, parks, and even a movie studio.

    Fun videos. I’ve never been to Queens so never heard of Flushing Meadows Corona Park or East Elmhurst. I’m in New York a lot and this will inspire me to explore more.

    • Holly

      Thank you. Ahhh you will have to do a bit more exploring then when you visit New York because Queens has much to offer.

  • Carolina Colborn

    Flushing Meadows…isn’t that where the US Open Tennis is being held now?

  • violetaloredana

    I’d love to see the Flushing Meadows Corona Park; In fact, I’d love to discovered these boroughs myself one day. Lovely and funny videos – really liked them!

    • Holly

      I hope you do! It is a great park that always has something going on.

  • anna

    Been to NY twice now but haven’t explored that area yet. Fun videos!!

    • Holly

      It takes many visits to see New York so that is understandable.

  • Jackie Sills-Dellegrazie

    My first apartment in college was in Astoria! The Greek food is amazing and its so easy to explore from Manhattan. You brought back memories of the Ditmars N R station and crazy late nights where my friends and I chowed at the Neptune Diner!

    • Holly

      Awesome! It is very easy to explore. There are so many different types of food in Astoria. It is foodie heaven lol. Glad to bring you back some great memories.

  • Jenna Kvidt

    So many fun videos and spots to check out in Queens! Would love to head there and explore sometime. Flushing Meadows Corona Park and the Only In Queens Summer Festival look like so much fun!! Definitely need to make it back to New York sometime soon!

    • Holly

      Yes and more videos coming soon! The festival was a lot of fun.

  • Leah

    Brooklyn and Manhattan are the only boroughs I’ve visited. It looks like there’s plenty to discover in Queens.

    • Holly

      That just means you have some more exploring of New York to do.

  • marshasassycritic

    I like your videos! It looks like there’s a lot of cool things to do and see in Queens! I bet that Summer festival was fun!

    • Holly

      Thank you. Queens has a lot to offer. The festival was a lot of fun.

  • kemkem

    Looks like a great place to visit. I’ve been to New York but never Flushing meadows. Cool videos

    • Holly

      I think a lot of people forget NYC is more than just Manhattan or Brooklyn.

  • LaQuisha Hall

    I have never been to Queens and your videos made it look like a fun place to visit! Thanks so much for sharing.

  • Cory Lee

    I have been in New York a few times already and will be going again in just a couple weeks. I’ve actually never been to Queens though, so maybe I’ll finally give it a try.

    • Holly

      Most people fly into Queens and don’t explore it. Something to give a try.

  • Antoinette Cain

    This was fun to read/watch. I haven’t visited NYC since childhood.

    • Holly

      Thank you. I hope you come back soon.

  • Tomiko

    I go to NYC every year but I’ve never ventured out of the tourist area but these videos have me wanting to explore more. I’m taking my daughter next year so this might be the perfect time to get out of my comfort zone

    • Holly

      Time to venture out. There is much more to see, do, and eat besides staying in Manhattan.

  • Aileen

    Oooh, this is an interesting post! I’m planning on visiting NYC soon so I need all the ideas I can get 😀

    • Holly

      There is plenty to do in all the boroughs.

  • tiffanytravelsblog

    I like NYC! Summer festivals are always a good time, especially for the music and different food trucks! I haven’t been back to my High School in a while, but my little sister is a sophomore, so i have more reason to visit!

    • Holly

      NYC is great. There is always something going on.

  • mags

    This is great. I’ve been to NYC several times, but never explored Queens. I’m headed back in November to change that!

    • Holly

      Glad you will be back soon. Hope you do explore Queens.

  • mimicutelips

    Although I lived in the BX as a kid I don’t know much about Queens. I’ve got some catching up to do.

    • Holly

      The Bronx is very cool and another underrated place.

  • Ty Knighten

    Great videos! I have never been to the Bronx although I definitely want to go. That is for the tips!!

    • Holly

      Thanks Queens is a great place and the Bronx is cool too.


    I’ve been to NYC on two occasions but never really to explore all the Boroughs. I may need to that next time.
