From a sumo wrestler taking on opponents twice her side to a woman who makes art out of dirty driveways with her power washer, these legends are loved by Localish audiences around the globe. But only one can win!

NEW YORK -- Queens, New York is one of NYC's largest boroughs and as one of its most densely populated, there is more going on here than most whole cities. But what makes Queens truly legendary is just how global it is.

With thousands of different restaurants, shops, and people from all over the world, Queens is the most ethnically diverse urban areas on the planet. And just like our Legends, the people who call Queens home take a certain pride in being a part of that global community.

On this week's episode, we're featuring a sumo wrestler taking on opponents twice her size, an eco-artist using mother nature to create his environmentally-friendly art, a sign spinner busting a move to make people smile, a power washer turning dirty driveways into masterpieces, and a designer making magical Disney-themed costumes for his family.

While all legendary in their own way, only one can win.
