After noticing a significant gap in the New York City tourism website's Queens coverage, we asked readers to submit their suggestions for things to do, places to eat and sites to visit in their favorite neighborhoods — and they responded!

The NYCGo site only profiled nine Queens neighborhoods, so we're bringing you our readers' responses for what to do in the dozens of communities that make our borough the best in the world.

For the third installment in our experts' guide to Queens communities, Kew Gardens native Andrew Taranto submitted his favorite spots in Kew Gardens and Richmond Hill.
