Flushing Freedom Mile

Despite its current status as a solid working-class neighborhood at the terminus of the 7 train, Flushing, Queens has a long and storied history. To accentuate its past, the city has placed a number of colorful signs demarcating the "Flushing Freedom Mile," a pair of walking tours through a number of historic sites within a one-mile radius of downtown Flushing.
