Flushing is a neighborhood within the borough of Queens in New York City, New York. Flushing is a thriving business and residential area, with large Chinese and Korean communities .


The neighborhood is 55% Asian American and contains the largest ethnic Chinese community in the New York metropolitan area, surpassing even Manhattan's Chinatown. According to New York magazine, Flushing is the second-largest Chinatown in United States. Flushing also consists of Hispanic American, African American, Indian and Southeast Asian (mostly Filipino American) communities of significant size, as well as long time European American residents.

Flushing was not traditionally an ethnic enclave. In 1970, with 45,569 residents, Flushing had a 76% non-Hispanic white population. After the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, Flushing saw its own share of demographic shift. Within a span of only two decades, Flushing, a neighborhood that was prominently White, has been transformed into a neighborhood with 36% Asian in 1990. The non-Hispanic white population of Flushing was reduced down to 29%, while the total population has increased to 54,488. Traditionally white flight like this is associated with urban decay, but the condition in Flushing actually resulted in an economic boom for the local area. The reaction to this demographic change is mixed amongst the long-term residents.
