The other poster is a Flushing booster and is going to insist that doesn't matter

Of course, all the stores and restaurants need workers.

True. Like another poster said, there's a growing hispanic/black population (there are some Hispanic bakeries/eateries setting up shop and have a thriving business). And I've seen several Halal food trucks parked around and have a line of customers. Indians were always around and have a small enclave by the QBG area. And even (gasp!) a Hasidic community though I'm not sure where they're at. I think by the Queens College area if I had to guess. Flushing covers a wide area but everyone just thinks of downtown Main Street.

We’re specifically talking about downtown in the context of this conversation though.

Yeah, and referring to everywhere with a Flushing, NY mailing address would be way too broad.
