Queens County has a long and varied history, rich with mighty highs and crushing blows. There have been people living on this land for thousands of years, living in concert with nature and adjusting to the changing tides. In that respect, our history is very much our present and future. As residents in the UNESCO Southwest Nova Biosphere, we strive to maintain a balance between development and nature, ensuring that Queens remains true to her past and is a legacy for our children to enjoy.
