Live NEA Jazz In Flushing Queens
Queens has long been known as the Home Of Jazz because during the pre-civil rights transformation in American society in the 20th century, many of the African American jazz greats found their homes in the multi-ethnic community of Queens. Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Duke Ellington and Benny Goodman - to name just a few - all lived in Queens. Flushing Town Hall pays tribute to these great musicians by presenting a robust schedule of jazz events. Click here for things to do in Flushing at the Flushing Town Hall.
