The borough of Queens is one of New York City's largest, with 2,230,722 people. The district lies on the Western side of Long Island sharing borders with the Bronx, Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Staten Island. The formation of Queens dates back to the seventeenth-century when settlers from Europe took place on the Eastern Coast of the United States. The original settlers were a mixture of Dutch and English, with residents of the settlement being subject to Dutch law until 1664, when the area was officially named New York. Queens was one of the original twelve counties that were incorporated into New York State in 1683. While modern-day Queens formally is a borough, it ranks on the same scale population-wise as some of America's largest cities. There are numerous neighborhoods in the area that cover both affluent and social housing regions. Key areas include Ozone Park, Flushing, and Jackson Heights.
Queens is one of the most ethnically diverse regions in the United States with African-American, Asian, Peruvian, Italian, and Latin-American communities. There are estimated to be 138 different languages spoken throughout the borough of Queens. The rich diversity in the borough has led to it being the center of important cultural events throughout the twentieth century. These include the Jazz explosion in the 1920s. Jazz masters such as Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald lived in Queens during the early twentieth century to avoid segregation and other civil injustices. The borough is also notable for producing the East Coast hip-hop sound, including Nas, Run DMC, and a Tribe Called Quest. The Queens Night Market is a celebration of food diversity and attracts thousands of residents and visitors each day.
