A new Dunkin’ Donuts location has opened in Jackson Heights.

The popular chain opened at 87-10 Northern Blvd. on March 24, according to a company spokesperson.

The expansion is nothing new for Dunkin’ Donuts. The company is the largest national retailer in New York City, with 568 stores, according to the 2015 State of the Chains study by the Center for an Urban Future.

Dunkin’ Donuts is the dominant chain in every borough except Manhattan, where it ranks fourth in number of locations. Queens has the most Dunkin’ Donuts locations of all the boroughs, with 171.

Last year, Dunkin’ Donuts opened 10 new shops in Queens according to the CUF study.

“We’re excited about our restaurant growth in Queens and hope to continue to expand our presence in the borough,” the Dunkin’ Donuts spokesperson said.

This will be the fifth Dunkin’ Donuts location in Jackson Heights, and is a franchise, according to the company.

The Northern Boulevard location will be open 24 hours, seven days a week.

The spokesperson said that Dunkin’ Donuts’ “strong demand” in the neighborhood factored in to the decision to open the Northern Boulevard location.

This Dunkin’ Donuts location shares a building with Chipotle, which opened last December.

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

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.
