The last chapter discusses the period since September 11, 2001, the reverberations of that day in a community with the largest Afghan population in the city, the work of interfaith groups, local politics, and the rise of Asian Americans as the dominant ethnic group in Flushing since the Census of 2000. It also explores the fragmentation and regeneration of Flushing’s community ideology of religious freedom and toleration in a microcosm of world religions and then moves into a discussion of children, education, and the future of Flushing. The book ends with a comparison of Flushing and New York City to other American cities and localities, and it poses further questions about what it means to live with pluralism in Flushing and America today.
