Summary:
City of Gods is a history and ethnography of Flushing, Queens in New York City. An important site in colonial America for its place in the history of religious freedom, Flushing is now perhaps the most striking case of religious and ethnic pluralism in the world--and an ideal place to explore how America's long experiment with religious freedom, immigration, and religious pluralism began and continues.
