Got involved in a Facebook discussion about what were the boundaries of Flushing. Now I always thought I grew up in Flushing, but had a mailing address of Fresh Meadows. As i tried to research it online, I was not able to find the boundaries of Flushing the town (or municipality, or whatever). I was only able to find the boundaries of zip codes, or the neighborhood of Flushing, and I didn't live in that neighborhood. Apparently, the "neighborhood" of Flushing has the LIE as it's southern boundary (according to Wilipedia), while I always thought that Flushing was bounded by Union Turnpike. Are there municipalities in NYC (or Queens)? Who do people pay there real estate taxes to?
