Jackson Heights

Jackson Heights is considered one of the most, if not the most, diverse neighborhoods in all of New York City. It is located in central Queens, with an incredible vast array of ethnic groups living in the area. Half of the population of Jackson Heights is foreign born as of 2000. It is home to a large population of South Americans especially Columbians and Ecuadorians. Jackson Heights also houses a large South Asian population including Indians, Pakistanis, and Bangladeshis. Most businesses in this area are Asian or Hispanic owned. With enclaves like little India, little Bangladesh, and little Columbia, Jackson Heights’ diverse culture is unmatched by any other place in New York City.
