The NYC You've Never Seen: All Roads Lead To Flushing Edition
Taught by Richard Exelbert
Richard Exelbert has made New York City his home for 17 years and has been a licensed NYC sightseeing guide for ten. His focus is not on the typical historical and architectual information that makes up most tours, but instead full sensory immersion - the aesthetic experience of opening up to anything and everything in new environments.
Flushing, Queens is the proud birthplace of religious freedom in the United States owing to the landmark legal precedents set there in the 17th century, and today it is one of the most diverse and exciting places on Earth.
This class covers the many astounding journeys you can take in Flushing, Queens and its surrounding areas - branching North, East, West, and South. You will be armed with what you need to organize your own day trips there. No passport or plane ticket needed, just your metrocard, a few dollars, and maybe your cell phone in case you get lost.
Plus the class will address Flushing's rich and fascinating history - and how it got to where it is today.
