To set the scene for what will happen in Flushing over the next 35 years, Chapter Three turns from the second World’s Fair to the historical context of 1965’s watershed immigration legislation, the early history of Flushing’s new immigrant communities and religions, why they chose to settle in Flushing, the construction of places of worship and transnational ties to religion in the home country, as well as issues specific to each group. The major immigrant communities in Flushing are based on nationality and further broken up into the religion(s) represented by each group, and the story (which relies heavily on oral history) continues to the end of the twentieth century.
