Well, the 25-year-old actress who plays the part of Betty Suarez, the ugly duckling, is in Queens filming the fall season series for ABC television.
What’s great about America Ferrera is that in real life she shows a self that all women should exhibit. Physically, she isn’t what Americans (our fellow countrymen and women, and not fans of the actress) consider a “hot” movie star, yet her stature and style make her an attractive star of the silver screen, as well as for this issue’s cover.
We also have the Top 15 Masterminds of Queens in this issue. Masterminds are a unique group of individuals who have made an impact on Queens that will last for generations to come. People like Claire Shulman, who helped the USTA expand, and Chris Ward, who was the man behind the AirTrain. Or Dick Aurelio, creator, founder, and driving force of Time Warner’s 24-hour all-news network, NY1. According to our sources, there were those inside the company who thought too many resources were going into covering local news, but he won the battle and we’re all better for it.
In this issue we also profile the top 5 golf holes and tattoo parlors, rank the best places to host your summer party, give you a taste of Spain right here in Queens, and so much more.
Forest Hills is our neighborhood profile. It is more diverse than people think and it is worth a trip down Austin Street.
In the next issue we’ll profile the Top 20 Innovators in Queens. We already have a few, but our readers can suggest someone by sending a note to firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s worth noting, that this issue marks the appearance of It’s Queens on hundreds of newsstands across the city, and if you are reading this, it looks like you’ve already found one.
Enjoy the summer issue!
