The commercial district in Elmhurst along Broadway, especially near Whitney Avenue, is the home of a growing number of Asian and Southeast Asian businesses and restaurants. The greater Elmhurst neighborhood is one of the most diverse places in Queens, but most visible on the blocks along Broadway are shops catering to Thais, Chinese, Taiwanese, Indonesians, and other immigrants from East and Southeast Asia.
