Queens is an amazing place with a long and rich history. It is home to people from more nations and of more backgrounds than any other community in the world, making it both an exciting and a unique place to live and work. Originally an agrarian area serving the needs of "New York City," Queens has steadily grown into a complex network of communities devoted to both industry and commerce, and provides domicile to more than 2 million New Yorkers.
Like any vital community, Queens must continually innovate and change in order to flourish. Advancing the development needs of the north-central part of the borough is the charge of the Flushing-Willets Point-Corona LDC (FWCLDC). Our members come from businesses, private and public institutions and from community groups, and share a common interest in the future of Flushing, Willets Point and Corona.
Use the animation above to learn more about the areas encompassed by the Flushing-Willets Point-Corona LDC master plan.
The history of Queens, our country's most diverse county, includes stories that are as varied and fascinating as the borough's communities today.
