Representing one of countless culturally-rich blocks in Jackson Heights, this segment of 74th Street is overflowing with the smells and sights of India. Colorful and vibrant, every inch of the street is blanketed with people, shops and cars. And while there are certainly more crowded blocks throughout the city, this one gets a strong boost from the huge Subway station on Roosevelt Avenue (serving the 7, E, F, V and R trains).
With hardly a new building in sight, pretty much everything here is crammed into converted storefronts and upstairs boutiques. You're not liable to find many chain stores, but despite that, you could still probably buy everything you'd ever need right here.
