Airplanes And Food Trucks (And Other Things You’ll See) When Moving To Queens

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s…wait, yup that is a plane. But where is it coming from? Where is it going? That’s a question you’ll probably ask often if you ever move to Queens. The Borough of Queens is home to both of New York City’s two major airports: LaGuardia and Kennedy International (or JFK). LaGuardia handles most of the domestic flights while Kennedy is your gateway to pretty much every part of the globe. Imagine leaving your home in the morning, go to the airport, and hop on a plane to London by the time the Queen is eating dinner.

But airplanes won’t be the only thing you’ll see here in this part of New York City. When you move to Queens, you will get used to seeing some other cool stuff almost everyday. In fact, let’s go over a few of them right now:

1. Food Trucks. Food Trucks Everywhere.

Name a type of food off the top of your head. You will likely see a truck for that. Tacos, Indian, BBQ…it’s pretty much all there. And the people of Queens love their food trucks. Almost to the point where they would declare their undying love for one and their hard-boiled hate for another. If you have a favorite food truck and someone says they hate it, you better be prepared to ask them why.

2. Outdoor Drinking

Like food trucks, there are outdoor drinking venues all over the place. It’ll basically be a game of “pick a place, any place”. Even the crazy brave would be willing to drink outdoors when it’s cold outside. Thankfully, there are some outdoor patios that will keep people warm while they enjoy a beer as cold as the weather itself.

3. The 24/7 Eateries

We’ll stop talking about food trucks now. We promise. Aside from them, Queens has a wide array of eateries that are mostly open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You’ve never lived life until you’ve eaten a full course meal at 3 o’clock in the morning. Don’t be surprised if you’re not the only one eating that late at night, either.

4. Sports Fans Galore

Queens is the home of two iconic sports stadiums: Citi Field and USTA Billie Jean King Tennis Center. Citi Field is the home of those Amazin’ New York Mets. While the Tennis Center hosts the US Open in tennis every year. Who said that history can’t be made right in your backyard? If you’re a baseball fan with no allegiance to a team, be sure to check out a Mets game. Unless of course, you’re willing to make a slightly longer trek to the Bronx. We won’t hold that against you if you’re a Yankees fan.


A lot is happening here in Queens. This is the place to move to if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of a place like Manhattan. When you move here, you’ll still have a lot of options for food and fun right at your fingertips.

    We couldn’t be happier with our recent move with Simply Moving.

    Their prices were affordable, in fact, a lot cheaper than the quotes we got from the other movers we had called in the NYC area.

    Great group of MOVERS.

    The movers arrived 15 minutes ahead of schedule, when it was cold and rainy. I wasn’t able to pack everything since my mother had passed away a few days before my move. They made me feel safe and helped pack things gently and quickly. They were patient and very positive and compassionate. They were too notch. Highly recommend their services.

    Dear Stefan, I want to tell the public how wonderful your company has treated me. Has stored my possessions and has delivered everything with the utmost of care. Thank you will all my heart for the service you gave me and the protection you provided for all my things these years. If I had to rate your company I would give you a ten…!

    P.S. when I got the delivery we thought there was an antique shelf missing but I found that behind some boxes after the truck left…So I have it all and am filled with joy…
