Wander around the neighborhood with Aseem Chhabra, a widely-published freelance journalist and Queens resident, as he narrates Jackson Heights? history and see for yourself how the present-day cosmopolitan community translates itself into an array of culturally-distinctive restaurants, supermarkets and clothing stores.
