What To Do In Queens

Flushing Meadows Corona Park

The largest park in Queens has quite the interesting evolution story. It was once nothing more than an ash and refuse dump serving as the inspiration for The Great Gatsby’s “valley of the ashes”. It then became the main backdrop for the 1939 and 1964 World Fairs; in fact, the park is still home to several famous World Fair relics. Today, the park serves as a stunning main attraction for locals, families, and tourists alike in Queens.

At almost 900 acres, the park has something for everyone: the New York Hall of Science, the Queens Museum, a botanical garden, the Queens Zoo, the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center (home of the US Open), Citi Field (home of The Mets), a carousel, a marina, an amphitheatre, athletic fields, running trails, playgrounds, a swimming pool, an ice skating rink, an amusement park, the famous Unisphere and fountains, and much more. This gem is a definite “must-see” for anyone visiting Queens. When planning your visit to Flushing Meadows, allow yourself more than one day to see and do everything on your wish list.
