The Queens Center Mall will soon serve cheesecake.

The popular chain restaurant The Cheesecake Factory will open inside the mall, located at 90-15 Queens Blvd., in the coming months, the company has confirmed.

“Yes, we will be opening in Queens Center in Elmhurst,” said Alethea Rowe, Senior Director of Public Relations for The Cheesecake Factory.

“We anticipate opening this winter,” she added.

This will be the first Cheesecake Factory in New York City.

John Scaturro, Senior Manager of Marketing with the Queens Center Mall, spoke positively of the opening.

“We are excited The Cheesecake Factory will be joining us because they will provide a nice, interesting dining alternative to our guests and our community,” he said.

The restaurant will open on the street level of the JC Penny side of the mall – the corner of 92nd Street and 59th Avenue – according to Scaturro.

At this time it is unclear whether the restaurant will have its own entrance from the street or if customers will only be able to enter through the mall.

The first The Cheesecake Factory opened in Beverly Hills, Calif. in 1978. Today the company has over 200 restaurants around the world, according to its website.

Met Council leader warns of ‘catastrophe’ for low-income families in Queens due to lack of pandemic-era federal food aid

Mar. 28, 2023 By Bill Parry

As an accomplished legislator, law professor and media personality with broad experience in government and not-for-profit organizations, Met Council CEO and executive director David Greenfield is well aware of the power of words. With Passover arriving on Wednesday, April 5, and with federal pandemic food assistance no longer available to low-income families in Queens, the leader of the nation’s largest Jewish charity organization warned of a coming “catastrophe” and called for the city to step up to provide $13 million in emergency funding for pantries to help New Yorkers facing food insecurity and elevated costs of living in the borough.

Pair of Queens community organizations will activate public spaces to celebrate local cultures

Two Queens community organizations are among an inaugural cohort of five groups citywide that will lead new projects to celebrate local cultures and histories in public spaces under a new initiative called The Local Center in a partnership between Urban Design Forum and the Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development (ANHD).

At a time when New York is grappling with an uneven pandemic recovery and as displacement looms large for communities and neighborhoods across the five boroughs, this new endeavor will convene interdisciplinary teams to transform and activate the shared spaces where cultural traditions flourish — and importantly, center the community visions and leadership that is too often left out of the process.
