I go to Edison and Jackson Heights often. I prefer Jackson Heights because it's more urban.

Both places have enough Indian restaurants and stores to keep you going back for years (well, if you like Indian restaurants and stores that is). Of course, if you want upscale then you are better off heading to Manhattan.

I think the type of Indian food is different. Jackson Heights is more Bengali / Bangladeshi oriented while Edison is more Gujarati (at least in population). Sometimes the more downscale ethnic restaurants are more authentic.

While I agree with you it's NOT the number one attraction in the country, it does have a lot to offer besides airports:

How about PS1?

How about the Queens Museum that has the panorama of NYC, an architectural model that includes every single building...?

How about Citi Field?

How about the NY Hall of Science (great place to bring kids by the way)?

The Queens Zoo?

The Queens County Farm Museum?

Museum of the Moving Image?

How about the tons of restaurants of cuisines from all over the world?

The Queens Botantical Garden?

Flushing Meadows

Etc, etc.

If you have a few days in NYC it might not be worth spending time in Queens, but to ignore it (especially when you LIVE in the city) is unfortunate to me.
Resorts World is the casino with the highest revenue in the country, and it's in Ozone Park. The Rockaways are the longest beachfront in the city and they are gentrifying. LIC has several film studios.

Jackson Heights not only has South Asian restaurants, but it also has South American and Mexican restaurants. Nearby in Elmhurst there are mainland Chinese restaurants (real deal, not fast food places), Korean, and Thai restaurants.

Along with that in Elmhurst you also have Indonesian, Malaysian and Vietnamese. Nearby Woodside has Filipino. You name it, Queens got it.

All within walking distance of each other, and about a 15 minute train ride from Manhattan!

If that's true about Resorts World, its impressive. Go up Woodhaven blvd and you also have the highest-grossing mall in the country (Queens Center). There's already plenty of business in Queens without the hype.
