The New Queens Immigrants: Ecuadoreans, Guyanese, Korean and Polish

Picture 4

Queens is one of the most ethnically diverse boroughs in the world, and that trend isn’t changing. The Times has an overview of the newest immigrant neighborhoods, which include Corona Park, home to many of the 137,000 total Ecuadoreans in the city — the sixth-largest immigrant population overall. Some local restaurants include Sabor Latino at 95-35 40th Road and Barzola at 9212 37th Avenue. The Guyanese make their mark in Richmond Hill and Ozone Park, which has shops like Sybil’s Bakery & Restaurant at 132-17 Liberty Avenue and Dave West Indian Imports at 98-07 97th Avenue. Koreans may be known for their outpost near Penn Station, but Murray Hill has its own restaurant street with shops like Han Hoo Korean Restaurant at 41-06 149th Place and Mapo BBQ at 14924 41st Avenue. And the Polish, who have roots in Greenpoint and Maspeth, are moving to Ridgewood, which is filled with delis and restaurants like Krolewsie Jadlo at 66-21 Fresh Pond Road.
