74th St Jackson Heights (Queens), New York

Jackson Heights is the principal shopping area for South Asians in the New York metropolitan region.

The place just teems with stores of every kind - saree boutiques, beauty parlors, travel agents, insurance agents, jewelry stores, restaurants, antique outlets, immigration law firms, music shops, mithaiwalallahs and more.

Jackson Heights even used to have a movie house called Eagle theater screening Bollywood films. Alas, Eagle Theater is now closed and a retail establishment is coming up in its place.

And if you thought that was it, you can even get your favorite sugarcane juice and kulfi ice cream in Jackson Heights!
