Queens is ONE of the five boroughs (COUNTIES) that make up the City of New York, and Queens has many SECTIONS, including such as Rego Park, Maspeth, Jackson Heights, Long Island City, Woodside, Elmhurst, Kew Gardens, Jamaica, etc. etc. When you address a mailing envelope to someone living in Queens, you use the SECTION instead of Queens, before the STATE (NY). So if someone asks you what part of Queens you are from, tell them the SECTION name. I personally lived many years in Jackson Heights before moving to New Jersey.
