THE North Shore of Queens is a series of peninsulas separated by bays of the East River: Bowery Bay, Flushing Bay, Powell's Cove, Little Bay, and Little Neck Bay. The western half, from Astoria to Flushing, is a welldeveloped residential area with a few industries, and is served by the three subway systems. East of Flushing are spacious, more fashionable suburbs similar to the wealthy communities in adjoining Nassau County. New highways and bridges and major improvements created for the 1939 World's Fair, in Flushing, are transforming the North Shore, most of which has remained unchanged for years.
