New York City Borough Walking: Where for Diverse Flavorful Neighborhoods?

Jump to last reply

Can you recommend interesting working-class neighborhoods to walk around in in the daytime. I walked from Rego Park to Flushing Meadows following the back streets & was amazed at the side of the City I discovered. For me, a long long walk , but I could try something as long again. Can you recommend an inexpensive bike rental firm anywhere in the city?
I've walked around City Island, which I flipped for. The neighborhoods that have the fewest large apt. bldgs seem the most interesting. I think where I was in that part of Queens was Puerto Rican & El Salvadoran-settled areas. I tried to find an interesting-looking part of Jackson Heights but could not. Any advice? What I'm seeking is seeing the folks in their day-to-day low-key lives on the peaceful side streets. The small shops & eateries I'm always curious about. (I'm not seeking a cool, youthful hipster vibe).
If there are any lesser-known festivals in the outer boroughs I'm curious. Unusual music is a plus. I speak no Spanish, some French, but I try to connect. I know very little about the Bronx & only part of far Brooklyn I know is Rockaways. I'm visiting the city. I could consider getting out to the older adjoining suburbs. Grateful for your consideration.
