Woodside: Queens’ Little Melting Pot

After World War II, Woodside, Queens was a regular chip off the ole’ Blarney Stone, with Irish stores, restaurants, pubs and people lining the Roosevelt Avenue strip and its surrounding neighborhoods. Mayor Bloomberg’s goal of assisting and preserving New York’s small businesses has resulted in a recent influx of diversity to 11377. Local hotspots like Donovan’s and Saints and Sinners keep ‘em coming, but this code has also opened its doors to Filipino, Korean, Chinese, and Columbian storefronts & communities. This charming area still has the luck o’ the Irish, but modern day Woodside is a melting pot of culture that offers something for everyone. CiNYC host Shirley takes a stroll with Rob Walsh, the Commissioner of Small Business Services, to learn what gives this code it’s Local Flavor.
