For those data heads out there, here are a series of maps that show where QueensNYC’s visitors are located. Each pin represents one visitor of the most recent 1000. You can see we have a lot of CT and Westchester readers, but of course most are in NYC.
The QueensNYC event calendar is the place to to find out what’s going on in Queens, whether you’re planning a day trip, looking for something to do with the kids, want to take in a cool museum exhibit, or looking for a free and fun weekend outing. You can add events to the calendar if you are a registered member of QueensNYC.
Here’s a tour of the features and use of the QueensNYC event calendar.
You can browse through all the events, but you might want to use the category filter to look for specific kinds of events.
You can also filter by date (this week, this month, or choose just the dates you want). Many events are free and you see just these by choosing “Free”.
QueensNYC Real Estate is the place to go to find housing in Queens. QueensNYC has thousands of listings for sale and rent, including both residential and commercial, which are refreshed every day. Anyone can add properties too. Here’s a quick tour of the QueensNYC Real Estate.
A few exciting updates to our site, with more on the way.
We’ve continued to expand our events calendar so you can access the best of what’s going on in Queens, from kayaking trips to lunchtime dance parties. Our real estate listings now number over 5,700.
Besides our new logo, a site redesign is in the works. Our new layout will be more clear and comprehensive, allowing readers to easily navigate between all our site features–the QueensNYC blog, calendar, listings, reviews, and social media feeds.
Since we’re still fine tuning, blog content will be light for the next few weeks. Please keep sharing our site with your friends and neighbors. Find us on Twitter and Facebook, and add your own photos of Queens to our Flickr page.
