Re: Will LIRR roll again in Elmhurst?

My info was old. Nikon is now in Melville and TDK in Uniondale. But I believe the residential community is still in the PW area. It's a community of temporary residents who are here for business and only live there for 3-5 years. Permanent resident Japanese who work at those companies mostly live elsewhere in Nassau or Queens.

The original Japanese residential community for Nassau based companies was Flushing, Queens. But as the Koreans took over Flushing in the eighties, they moved closer to their workplaces. By the mid-nineties, Japanese food stores, hair salons, rental video stores started popping up in Port Washington. You gotta please the wives who usually do not have work permits when they come to the US.
