Flushing to Chinatown minibuses run between the city’s main Chinese neighborhoods: Flushing in Queens & Chinatown in Manhattan. A 30-minute trip on the expressways each ride costs $2.75. Not bad, considering the subway’s now $2.25 a ride anyway and traveling from Flushing to the city via – 7 train into Manhattan is an exhausting trip that can easily take two hours. Plus, unlike the subway you’re guaranteed a seat! The vans wait for passengers on 41st street in Flushing, next to a hole-in-the-wall hawking what might be the neighborhood’s best dumplings.
