Flushing Rising

As a matter of kitsch, I’ll miss the old 1940s ski lodge-like main building at QBG, but its replacement is way more functional and correctly-sized, if a little trendy looking. Taken along with the equally sleek Flushing Branch of the Queens Library, it’s looking like New York’s second Chinatown is finally getting some architectural bling.
