Flushing or Bust: a Queens night market

I recently backed The Queens Night Market campaign on Kickstarter. It aims to open in the Spring of 2015 in Flushing, near the old World Fair site. It’s quite a fitting location due to the diversity of the borough.

Some of my fondest and tastiest memories of visiting Taiwan involve the night markets. I always thought of it as a distinctly Asian experience, until I visited some holiday markets in Europe. There was a similar air of excitement as people roamed the stalls and sampled goods.

I hope the Kickstarter campaign succeeds, even though I famously lost a bet that I could make it to Flushing from Lower Manhattan before a friend leaving from New Haven, CT. Evidently I-95 is much faster than the 7 train!
