Best Tour Around the World for $1.50 (2008)

No. 7 Flushing line

Still a vessel worth embarking on, the elevated No. 7 Flushing line offers something for every interest. Hungry for South Asian food? Amid sari shops, electronics stores, and other import-export businesses in the area, Jackson Heights boasts some of the best and cheapest fare. The latest Hello Kitty accessory? Loll on Main Street, the main artery of Flushing's Koreatown. Irish bars? Stop by for a cold one at Maggie Mae's, Flynn's Inn, or any of the other joints down Queens Boulevard in Sunnyside or Woodside. If your passion is sports, head to Shea for a Mets game or Flushing Meadows Park for the U.S. Open. And South America isn't very far off either. In Corona, take in a domino game or a subtitled film at the Plaza Theater. Adventurous travelers will find it a trek well worth a buck fifty.
