Brooklyn’s most famous millennial is having a food affair with Queens.

Lena Dunham, creator of the HBO show “Girls,” said she thinks the borough has the city’s best eating, calling it “authentic” without the fuss of other boroughs.

“Jackson Heights, Astoria... Lots of authenticity and not a lot of long ass lines,” she tweeted in response to a question during a Twitter chat yesterday to promote the release of her show’s second season on iTunes.

Dunham, 27, added that episode 205 (“One Man’s Trash”) was the most challenging for her as an actress, saying, “Hannah makes herself so emotionally naked.”

Judd Apatow, the show’s executive producer, also answered questions during the chat, saying that he actually prefers the food on Staten Island, and joking later that he’s been cast to star in a spin-off called “Boys.”

When he was asked how the series would continue without Christopher Abbott, the actor who played Charlie, he quipped: “I think Charlie went to Korea and switched identities with a deceased soldier named Don Draper.”
