Queens Probate

Of the five boroughs in New York City, Queens is the largest in terms of area (at 109 square miles) and is is the second largest borough in terms of population with 2.3 million residents. Forming the eastern boundary of the city and home to both LaGuardia and JFK International Airports, Queens is a major transportation hub. The borough also is a major center for sport, as Citi Field (home to the New York Mets of Major League Baseball) and Flushing Meadows Park (home to the U.S. Open tennis tournament) are both located in Queens. Queens is also home to world–famous watchmaker Bulova, piano manufacturer Steinway & Sons, and Glaceau (of Vitamin Water fame).
