If you are thinking of traveling to New York, I recommend that you do not focus only on visiting Manhattan and Brooklyn. New York has other districts with many things to see and do that you cannot miss. Queens is one of them. It is the district with the most ethnic and cultural diversity and therefore, there are many interesting things to see and do.
In this post I tell you the essential things to see and do in Queens, how to get there, tours you can do and some more tips.
IS IT SAFE TO VISIT QUEENS, NEW YORK
It is a common question that I am asked a lot when asked about the general security of New York and especially the districts of Queens and the Bronx.
Queens has also been gaining a bit of a bad reputation years ago, nothing like the Bronx, but there was some insecurity. Nowadays, although in New York, especially in some parts of the Bronx, it is not recommended to go, in general all of New York City is safe and you have to take the same precautions that you would have in cities like Barcelona or Paris. And the same applies to the district of Queens. You should keep in mind that the district is very large. Personally I have never had any incidents, nor have I had a feeling of insecurity, but I don't know the entire district of Queens either. As in any trip, be forewarned, follow your instinct a bit and enjoy the trip :)
In this post I will tell you about the most essential places to visit and that you can visit either on your own or with an organized tour.
HOW TO VISIT QUEENS, NEW YORK
Well, both ways. If it is your first time in New York and you are not staying in Queens, the best way, and I also recommend it, is to do it with the New York contrasts tour.
