“When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, materialism and militarism are incapable of being conquered”

-- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. speaking at Riverside Church in 1967 #MLK
Nearly 50 years after Martin Luther King Jr.'s death, there's still a sizable economic gap between black Americans and their white counterparts.

When did Syrians first migrate to the USA?
BY YANNIC RACK |. When Linda Jacobs's grandparents first set foot in New York City after their long trip from Syria in the late 19th century, they didn't have to walk far to feel like they never left home. Coming ashore in Lower Manhattan, they landed right in the middle of the vibrant Arab ...

Rincon Criollo is the best Cuban restaurant in New York, with authentic food and great service, a perfect place to bring your family and friends. The waiters are very good at taking care of your every need and even sing on your birthday or anniversary. The chicharron de pollo is amazing, tender and full of flavor. The plantanos and beans were also excellent. Cafe con leche is superb. Would definitely recommend if you're hungering for really good food.

The food is OK. Good for birthday parties for little kids (there were several the night we went), although the gong they used to sing 'Happy Birthday' was very annoying. Don't ever order the coffee, which is just awful and expensive. Atmosphere of a cattle feed lot.

The Coop has good chicken wings and makgeolli (traditional rice wine), two things Koreans cannot get wrong. The ambiance is geared toward upwardly-mobile trend-setters who like to spend money and hang out in cool places. In the evening, the music and general noise level can be very loud. The waiters are attentive, but may not get to your table if the place is crowded. Would definitely recommend to all the young hipsters moving into Flushing.

JeunJu is the best Korean restaurant for "gamja tang" -- potato stew -- my favorite Korean dish!!! The key ingredient for gamja tang are big chunks of pork ribs or spine and JeunJu slow cooks this meat so that it becomes tender and falls off the bone. The other ingredient that makes the gamja tang at JeunJu special is black sesame seeds and sesame leaf, which provides a unique contrast to the spicy stew, soft potatoes, and tender pork. Gamja tang originated in the Jeolla area during the Three Kingdoms Period where hog farming created plentiful supplies of pork. But, you don't have to be a historian to enjoy this Korean comfort food. Come to JeunJu for authentic Korean soul food!

JooMakGol is one of our favorite restaurants in Flushing, Queens! This family-owned and operated restaurant specializes in mackerel ssam bap, which features expertly grilled fish and a wide variety of vegetable and seaweed greens that you use to wrap rice, ban chan, and whatever your heart desires. The Korean cuisine in this small restaurant is authentic and freshly-made every day. Would recommend for lunch or dinner with friends and family.
