Jack Eichenbaum is holding a tour of Flushing’s Chinese and Korean commercial communities on Friday, June 15, from 6-8PM. The tour starts at the (Korean) Coop Restaurant located on 133-42 39th Ave for happy hour (3-7 PM) which includes $1 oysters and chicken wings and $3 draft beer. Tour departs outside the restaurant at 6 PM where a $20 fee is collected.
The walk includes highlights of downtown Flushing’s burgeoning Chinatown (now NYC’s largest!) with new mega malls under construction, Korean commerce on Union St and Northern Blvd ending in the Korean concentration in the Murray Hill area. Participants can return to downtown Flushing by foot or bus or catch an LIRR train direct to Pennsylvania Station. Korean and Chinese restaurant suggestions distributed.
This tour is limited to 30 people. You must register in advance; (email firstname.lastname@example.org) which I will confirm, hold you on a waiting list or advise of a sellout.
