2.Joes Shanghai Restaurant - Chinese Restaurants In Flushing
Joe's Shanghai Restaurant - Flushing Chinese Restaurants In Flushing Queens NY Flushing Neighborhood / Flushing Restaurants / Queens Restaurants / Queens Buzz. I’ve passed by Joe’s Shanghai in Flushing on many occasions. Without a miss, every time I walk by there’s a good crowd inside, and sometimes a few groups waiting outside the door. I reckon, as they say, that that is about as good advertising as one can get. But that kind of trade doesn’t happen overnight and it doesn’t happen without a lot of hard work. I arrived a bit past the rush hours, which generally run from about 7 to 9 pm. I was greeted and seated by Keith Yip [see photo to left], who is the restaurant manager and also a relation to Joe. Like the customers around me, I was instantly waited on and served tea. I perused the menu and decided to try the signature dishes recommended by Keith. You might want to take this review with you next time you head into Flushing, because everyone of these dishes was a hit.

4.Valentine's Day Restaurants In Queens
Valentine's Day Restaurants In Queens Queens Restaurants / Queens Neighborhoods / February 2016. Valentine's Day is next weekend when lovers far and wide enjoin in the great romantic migration, for a night out on the town. If the night is done smartly, it comes complete with a thoughtful card, a small box of candies and her favorite flowers; followed by a nice romantic dinner. The origins of Valentine's Day are not well documented. It's believed to have been named after Saint Valentine who was apparently a Catholic martyr who died over 1500 years ago. Today the holiday is not associated with religion so much as flowers, candies, cards and dinners. And the holiday spokesperson is now Cupid, a Roman god of desire, and from what we hear, quite a mischief maker. Click this link to go to a brief guide of Queens restaurants for Valentine's Day where you will find links to Queens restaurants we've reviewed. It's worth noting that most of these reviews are positive because we've selected some of the best restaurants in their categories in Queens. It's also worth noting that most of these restaurants do not currently advertise on this site, so there wasn't any quid pro quo. That said, in time we will certainly try to convince as many of them as we can, into advertising on this site, because we have a large discerning dining audience that includes you. Enjoy.

5.Mother's Day Restaurants In Queens
Mother's Day Restaurants In Queens 2021 Mother's Day Restaurants in Astoria, LIC, Sunnyside, Woodside & Jackson Heights April 27, 2021 / Queens Neighborhoods / Queens Restaurants / Queens Buzz NYC. Mother's Day is fast approaching. It's a good day to let your wife or mother or daughter know you appreciate her efforts in the most important role of her life. Flowers, gifts and brunch or dinner are always welcome, as is any thoughtful gesture that provides some measure showing your recognition of her efforts in her role as mother of some children. After all, without mothers, we would all cease to be. Normally it's best to book a restaurant reservation for Mother's Day brunch, as on Mother's Day in Queens, many restaurants are full. So if you're thinking about eating out at a restaurant this Mother's Day in Astoria, LIC, Jackson Heights, Sunnyside, Woodside or Flushing; it's best to do your research early, and call ahead to book Mother's Day restaurant reservations. Unlike last year, indoor dining is now available at most Queens restaurants, but at only at 50% capacity for restaurants located in New York City. Restaurants outside of NYC can accommodate 75% of capacity. That is likely because of the difference in the amount of space allocated to each diner in restaurants in the city versus restaurants outside of the city, as well as the higher density of population, etc. But that said, restaurants also have additional capacity via all of those outdoor shacks built during the pandemic, which has greatly increased overall space / seating capacity, and with the weather warming [the thermometer is expected to break the 80's tomorrow], outdoor dining is a pleasant, even welcome option. But as the saying goes, the early bird gets the [worm] better seating, so book early. COVID PRECAUTIONS. Lastly, be advised that most - if not all - of these restaurants may take your temperature prior to indoor seating and require masks except during dining. Other CoVid guidelines like social distancing also may apply. Mother's Day History - Restaurants In Queens The origins of Mother's Day in the United States began with the efforts by Anna Jarvis to honor her own mother. According to Wikipedia, Anna began the campaign in 1905 - the year her mother died - and in 1910 West Virginia was the first state to adopt Mothers Day as a holiday. In 1914 Woodrow Wilson made the second Sunday in May as a national holiday to honor mothers. Click this link to view a brief guide of Mother's Day restaurants in Queens 2021 where you will find links to Queens restaurants we've reviewed. The restaurants we've reviewed include a mix of high, medium and budget priced restaurants that are spread throughout the borough and offer a large variety of ethnic cuisines.

7.Chinese New Year Parade in Queens - Photos
Chinese New Year Parade Queens The Year of the Snake is Good for Business Updated March 10, 2013 / February 4, 2013 / Flushing / Chinese Culture in Queens / Queens Buzz. I have become a big fan of the Chinese New Year Parade in Flushing. Some reporters have estimated that about 4,000 people march in the parade, but we’re beginning to believe that this number is inflated. And we estimate that north of 10,000 people come to watch it. In the years I’ve been covering the parade, it seems that each year the crowd gets larger. But thankfully, there’s still plenty of space to find a good viewing location, because the parade route spans between one and two miles. This year I gained a little deeper understanding of the Chinese New Year traditions, as fell into a conversation about them with a former resident of Shanghai, who recently immigrated here. She told me about some of the traditions that accompany the Chinese New Year celebrations. Click here to read the rest of our report about and photos of the Chinese New Year Parade Queens in Flushing, including a photo slide show.

Queens New Years Eve Parties & Restaurants 2021 / 2022 Fun Restaurants to Celebrate New Years Eve / News Years in Astoria, LIC, Sunnyside, Woodside & Jackson Heights in Queens on New Years Eve NYC December 13, 2021 / Queens New Years Eve Parties & Restaurants / Queens Buzz NYC.   New Years Eve occurs on a Friday this year. While New Years Eve is one big party, it's important to keep in mind, that like St. Patrick's Day, all the amateurs come out to play [it's not just the Irish who are out drinking on St. Patrick's Day]. So some measure of caution is advised and you have to be careful. This year we also have the lingering effects of the pandemic to contend with, and a mandatory mask mandate goes into effect in NYC and NYS from December 13, 2021 until January 15, 2022 - at which time it will be re-evaluated. An early rsvp is highly recommended given the environment. The following are a number of different New Years restaurants in Queens NYC where you might consider booking a reservation. Click this link to view a brief guide of New Years Eve parties & restaurants in Queens where you will find links to Queens restaurants we've reviewed. The restaurants we've reviewed include a mix of high, medium and budget priced restaurants that are spread throughout the borough and offer a large variety of ethnic cuisines. Enjoy.

9.BRICS Summit & Development Bank
BRICS Summit 2014 BRICS Development Bank & Implications For The Western World August 2014 / International Affairs / News Analysis & Opinion / Queens Buzz. By Michael Wood. The sixth annual BRICS Summit was held in Fortaleza, Brazil beginning July 14 and ending July 16. BRICS is an international group comprised of five of the largest developing countries in the world. The name of the group includes the first letter of each nation's name and includes Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. This year South Africa was added as an offical member. South Africa had attended prior sessions as a special guest. This year Argentina was invited as a special guest. BRICS Development Bank Created With $100 Billion The biggest achievement of the summit was the creation of the BRICS Development Bank which was to be headquartered in Shanghai, China. This is a significant step for China becoming the banker to the developing world. Financing developing nation's growth is an effort that the Chinese have been working on for over a decade and hence this is another step in that direction. The BRICS Development Bank will start with $100 billion, with an additional $100 billion in a reserve currency pool. The BRICS Development Bank is considered a rival to the United Nations administered World Bank which is based in Washington, D.C. as well as to the International Monetary Fund [IMF] which is also based in Washington, D.C. The BRICS nations have been frustrated in their calls for reforms of what appear to be a half century old world view. Click here to view our report on the BRICS Summit & BRICS Development Bank.

10.Centenarians in Elmhurst / Jackson Heights Queens NYC
Dorothy Katz Centennial in Jackson Heights Today Freddie Katz Mother Celebrates 100 Years of Life - One Family's Oral History May 28, 2019 / Jackson Heights Neighborhood / Queens Neighborhoods / Queens Buzz NYC. Dorothy Katz moved into an Elmhurst apartment near Jackson Heights in 1956. Little did she know, that she would live there for another 63 years and counting … Her son, Freddie Katz, a touring guitarists, sound engineer and producer at Sierra Sound NYC, sent me an email with the following missive, “…I've heard that in the UK people who reach their centennial receive a postcard from the Queen, so I think that in lieu of that, Mom at least should get a sendup from the local newspaper.” Well, being neither a Queen, nor a member of the royal family, nor even the operator of a local newspaper – Freddie and I set to work on a little write up for Dorothy Katz’s 100th birthday – which is today. Freddie wrote down and provided me with, what was once an oral history, of some of his Mother’s and Father’s lives which follows below. I helped by doing a bit of editing. Dorothy Katz is shown at right, in a photo taken in 1956, shortly after she had married Murry.   Dorothy & Murry Katz - A Brief Family History Freddie tells us that his parents weren't really big on sharing tons of personal info ... it's just the way they were. And now that his Mother is past the point of being able to remember a lot of specifics, the following is what he can tell us about the lives of Dorothy & Murry Katz. Dorothy Katz was born on May 28th, 1919 at Lebanon Hospital in the Bronx. Her mother's name was Fanny and her father’s name was Abraham. The family name was Rosoff. I was named Fredric Avram Katz, after my maternal grandfather, and it’s worth noting that Avram is Hebrew for Abraham. Katz Family Oral History of Surviving WWII Freddie said that Dorothy’s mother Fanny was reportedly one of the only members of her family from Poland to survive the Holocaust. Fanny came over when she was a teenager, maybe with another relative. Most of the remaining family is believed to have died in Poland. In the photo at right is Max Katz, Freddie's paternal grandfather.   CLICK here for the rest of the story including photos of Dorothy Katz turns 100 - Centenarians in Jackson Heights / Elmhurst Queens NYC.
