EightySecondStreet is one of the main streets in Jackson Heights, and of course it's a subway stop on the 7 train. UnderTheElevated, on the corner are small street vendors, in the summer time Lemon Ice is the flavor of choice, but water and juices are also sold to quench the thirst of the NYC summer. People are friendly and eager to help you find your way down the shop-laden street.  Going West in Jackson Heights is the Indian section of the Heights...but here the main culture is Colombian, Mexican, Uruguayan, with a small smattering of Chinese. Queens is the most diverse location in the United States.
