This article concerns the district of Queens in San Fierro. For the Liberty City borough based on Queens, New York, see Dukes
Queens, San Fierro

Queens is a district of San Fierro, San Andreas. It is implied to house most of San Fierro's gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered population. The neighborhood situated just east of City Hall. To the north lies Santa Flora, to the south is Hashbury, and to the east is King's. The name Queens is a tongue-in-cheek reference to its residential make-up, and to the fact that it is meant to emulate San Francisco's famous Castro District, predominated by gay men.

History

Queens is the largest of the five boroughs of New York City and is located to the north of Brooklyn. It covers roughly 109 square miles of western Long Island and includes a few smaller islands, most of which are in Jamaica Bay and form part of Gateway National Recreation Area.

It is also primarily residential but not without its important manufacturing, distribution and transportation facilities as Queens is home to both John F. Kennedy and La Guardia International Airports. Manufacturers of paints, metals, textiles, paper products, etc. are located here.

Like Brooklyn, the neighborhoods of Queens are diverse and distinct with large Hispanic neighborhoods such as Little Columbia and many African American areas. Other ethnic groups in the groups populating the neighborhoods of Queens include Irish, Italians, Jews, Chinese, and Koreans.
