From Wikipedia:

“Flushing is a neighborhood in the New York City borough of Queens in the United States. While much of the neighborhood is residential, Downtown Flushing, centered on the northern end of Main Street in Queens, is a large commercial and retail area and is the fourth largest central business district in New York City.

Flushing’s diversity is reflected by the numerous ethnic groups that reside there. Flushing is served by five railroad stations on the Long Island Rail Road Port Washington Branch, as well as the New York City Subway’s IRT Flushing Line (7 train), which has its terminus at Main Street. The intersection of Main Street and Roosevelt Avenue is the third busiest intersection in New York City, behind Times and Herald Squares.

Flushing Chinatown, or Mandarin Town is the world’s largest and one of the fastest-growing Chinatowns, known as the “Chinese Times Square” or the “Chinese Manhattan”. In Mandarin, Flushing is known as “Falasheng” (Chinese: 法拉盛; pinyin: Fǎlāshèng). Conversely, the Flushing Chinatown has also become the epicenter of organized prostitution in the United States.

Main Street and the area to its west, particularly along Roosevelt Avenue, have become the primary nexus of Flushing’s Chinatown. However, Chinatown continues to expand southeastward along Kissena Boulevard and northward beyond Northern Boulevard. In the 1970s, a Chinese community established a foothold in the neighborhood of Flushing, whose demographic constituency had been predominantly non-Hispanic white. Taiwanese began the surge of immigration, followed by other groups of Chinese. By 1990, Asians constituted 41% of the population of the core area of Flushing, with Chinese in turn representing 41% of the Asian population. However, ethnic Chinese are constituting an increasingly dominant proportion of the Asian population as well as of the overall population in Flushing and its Chinatown.”

  2. PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT – koreans AND chinese
    FACIAL STRUCTURES
    PERFORMANCE RATING: 1 (UNSATISFACTORY)
    IF I COULD ONLY USE ONE WORD FOR THIS COMMENT SECTION IT WOULD BE A TOSS-UP BETWEEN 'UGLY' AND 'FLAT'
    FLAT: ONE THING YOU COULD APPRECIATE ABOUT CAUCASOID FACES (FULLY DEVELOPED AS ARE THEIR SKELETONS UNLIKE koreans/chinese) IS THEIR FACES ARE VERY OUTWARD- NOSES (TYPICALLY TRIANGULAR) ARE OUTWARD, FOREHEADS ARE OUTWARD, SKULL IS FULLY DEVELOPED
    NOW ONTO THE koreans/chinese, VERY VERY FLAT, AND TYPICALLY VERY ROUND WHICH IS NOT AN ATTRACTIVE THING- NOSE-BONE IS FLAT AND TYPICALLY BUTTON-NOSE-LOOKING (BUTTON, NOT TRIANGULAR NOSE-TIP), EYES ARE SMALL, ETC. ETC.
