Great list! Please advise if you can add a new dance and fitness studio that just opened in June 2014 in Jackson Heights. EC Squared Studio, 80-20 Roosevelt Avenue Suite 207, provides a space for those looking to get fit, learn to dance or simply get out of the daily routine and take up a fun activity.


Great list, thanks for sharing!

I'm producing a documentary about Jackson Heights and have opened an Instagram account to connect with neighbors and people interested in our neighborhood. I'm sharing my photos of Jackson Heights along with photos shared by the community too. Please let me know if you could include the Instagram account under your photos of Jackson Heights section... would love to be part of it! Here's a link:
