Martha Flores-Vazquez was born in Puerto Rico.
The upside to this immigration is that Flushing, which goes back to 1654 and was the site of two World's Fair's, has become a village of many nations, with a bustling working class economy, and a constantly congested Main Street -- which is to Flushing what Broadway is to Manhattan -- lined with hundreds of crowded restaurants, banks and stores, most of them with signs in at least two languages.Few of these business, which are largely owned by Korean, Taiwanese, and Chinese, are chain stores or franchises -- though the best-known lately was the local Wendy's restaurant where five people were murdered.Despite the attention drawn to the Wendy's massacre, none of the candidates said that crime was a major issue in the district.
