It is a known fact that Queens, New York is an extremely diverse place. You can travel all around it and experience so many different cultures. With that comes all types of foods! At the Queens International Night Market that is exactly what you get, different types of foods from all over the world. So of course my friend, Joanna and I had to see what all we could eat!
Every year in April all the car companies come together under one roof at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City. Thousands come out to view what is coming out, concept cars, and more. I have gone many times to what us New Yorkers simply call ‘The Car Show.’ This time around I had the opportunity to get a sneak peek prior to it opening to the public.
I don’t recall how I heard of this place, I do remember finding the menu on the internet and immediately telling my friend we need to go. The menu items looked pretty cool and unique. Krave It is a sandwich shop and eatery also serving pizza, beer, and more. I held on to the menu in my browser for a while and when we finally got the opportunity to go we were both pretty amped.
If you haven’t figured it out yet, I am from Queens, New York. I love exploring and learning more about my borough. It is the largest and more diverse in New York City. Queens has so much to offer, but many people don’t realize it. A great way to get an introduction to Queens is to go on a food tour. Queens Food Tours has started giving food tours in Long Island City and I got the chance to check out a neighborhood in my borough in a different light.

Being a Queens, New York native and growing up not too far from Flushing Meadows Corona Park, I was excited to find out there would not only be a summer stage at the park, but a full on festival. The Only in Queens Summer Festival made its debut with a great line up of performances from Kid ‘N Play, Mack Wilds, and Ginuwine.
I love to eat, especially Italian food. I have been wanting to venture down to Little Italy in Manhattan, but I just hadn’t made it. When I learned of Ahoy NY Tours & Tasting and saw that they not only took you through Little Italy, but also Chinatown I couldn’t wait to go. History, fun, and food sounded right up my alley. So with some comfortable shoes and a couple of bottles of water I was ready for the tour!
