Queens is one of the five boroughs of New York City, New York, and is coextensive with Queens County, the westernmost of the four counties which make up Long Island. Queens has a population of approximately 2.3 million people, and includes both urban industrialized areas and suburban residential neighborhoods. Two major airports, LaGuardia Airport and JFK International Airport are located here, as well as Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, site of the 1939 and 1964 World’s Fairs.


Although much of the area was rural and agricultural through the early 19th century, the establishment of railroads, streetcars and subway service towards the turn of the century caused a manufacturing and population boom, with areas such as Flushing, Astoria and Long Island City becoming heavily industrialized. Many Queens neighborhoods retain distinct ethnic and cultural identities established during that time. Iconic products manufactured in Queens include Steinway & Sons pianos, Chiclets gum and Swingline staplers. In 1943, Idlewild Airport was constructed on the grounds of a former golf course, and was renamed in honor of slain President John F. Kennedy in 1963. The airport is notable for receiving regular flights of both the Concorde and the massive Airbus A380 passenger planes. Another local institution, the Creedmoor Psychiatric Center, was founded in 1912 as the Farm Colony of Brooklyn State Hospital. By the late 1950s, the institution housed some 7,000 patients. Today, parts of the campus have been sold and several of the remaining buildings are disused. Queens today encompasses a wide mix of economic activity, including tourism, manufacturing, finance and the entertainment industry, as well as residential and recreational areas.

Queens’s ongoing history of industry, construction and renovation place it in a high-risk category for asbestos exposure. Workers exposed to asbestos are at risk for mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases. If you were exposed to asbestos in Queens and have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you should also consider contacting a mesothelioma law firm.
