The Economic Impact of Queens, NYC with Queens Borough President Donovan Richards and Queens Chamber of Commerce President Thomas J. Grech


Queens is the largest City borough by area, and the second-largest county in the state by population (second only to neighboring Kings County, aka Brooklyn). If it were its own city, it would be the fifth most-populous city in the United States. It is one of the most ethnically diverse counties in the country, and the most linguistically diverse place on Earth. What kind of commercial and business landscape does this create? What are the upcoming projects that will put Queens in the spotlight of all five boroughs? What does it have to offer businesses across different industries, as well as nonprofit organizations?
