Queens General Information:
Queens is the easternmost of the five boroughs of New York City. The largest borough in area, and second-largest in population, it is coextensive with Queens County, an administrative division of New York state, in the United States.
Located on the western portion of Long Island, Queens is home to two of the three major New York City area airports, JFK International Airport and LaGuardia Airport. It is also the location of the New York Mets baseball team, the US Open tennis tournament, Flushing Meadows Park, Kaufman Astoria Studios, Silvercup Studios, and Aqueduct Racetrack.
As of the 2005 American Community Survey, immigrants comprise 47.6% of Queens residents. With a population of 2.3 million, it is the second most populous borough in New York City (behind Brooklyn) and the tenth most populous county in the United States. It is also the nation’s fourth-most-densely populated county (after the counties covering Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Bronx).
Queens was established in 1683 as one of the original 12 counties of New York and was supposedly named for the Queen consort, Catherine of Braganza (1638–1705), the Portuguese princess who married King Charles II of England in 1662.
