Vibrant and historic, Flushing’s downtown is home to many unique and charming shops and restaurants. The civic pride is very strong, and it shows. In the spring and summer, Main Street is lined with baskets overflowing with gorgeous flowers, provided through a unique partnership between the city and the GFWC Women’s Group, which purchases and plants the flowers while the city keeps them watered. My City Magazine chatted with Susan Little, Flushing Chamber of Commerce Office Administrator, about Main Street and the many thriving businesses there.
“The business community is closely knit and they work together to help each other succeed,” Susan says. “I am always amazed by the generosity of the business owners here when it comes to supporting local events.” Chamber Membership Coordinator, Kristi Crawford, says Flushing is that first place she has ever lived that feels like home. “It has everything I want!” ♦
“Downtown Flushing is a draw. People don’t come here by accident – they are either on a mission or they’re lost!”
– Susan Little, Flushing CoC
