  • After the fourth time you visit New York, you want something new ... and then here's Corona Park in Queens! In this large park very well cared for and quiet, you have the top of the tennis world Made USA "Flushing Meadows"; the great "mappamondo" sphere made on the occasion of the second world exhibition held here in 1964 (the first was in 1939); a great graffiti to remember the two exhibitions and a bit in ruins (but with a restoration project) the pavilion and the tower USA. Tourists, few or none, and so you enjoy all the beauty of this park.

  • We visited him inside the Contrasts. The 1964 New York World's Fair was held in this park, and there are remnants of things like the world sphere and its fountain (Unisphere), and the two towers that resemble UFOs. For moviegoers, several scenes from the film Men in Black were shot here. Next door is the Open USA. In short, this area has a bit of everything: beautiful gardens to walk around, the stadium where the OPEN USA is held every year, the Museum of Queens (former HEADQUARTERs of the UN), the globe... to take good pictures

  • US Open Kids Day, what a wonderful relaxing day this was. Went with my 15 year old daughter. Will look forward to this event next year. It is usually done the Saturday right before the US Open. Enjoyed music, lunch, concert (which we paid separately) but well worth it. . After this event we took a walk to the Queens Museum, which is also inside the park. It was somewhat informative but we enjoyed the replica of NYC with all the exact models.
  • Visiting the US Open is always a fun and enjoyable time. Love the various activities around the grounds. The food is much improved... All of us alternative dietary requirement people thank you...drinks are easier to get as more spots are open for it. The roofs have added a great comfort level to the experience. Going on our 12th year here. See you next year!
