    Historian Dr. R Scott Handson will focus on the remarkable transformation of Flushing and Flushing Town Hall between 1979 when Flushing Council on Culture and the Arts was founded during a period of urban decline, and the 1990s when Flushing had become one of the most diverse places on the planet with a thriving downtown by the 2000s. The lecture will be followed by a walking tour of Flushing with Dr. Hanson and Queens Borough Historian Dr. Jack Eichenbaum.
