A couple of years ago some childhood friends took me to hear LIVE Egyptian music and it was so amazing. So if you check online maybe you can find some good music here!!

If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of downtown Flushing, it's worth your while to take a walk down Main Street to visit the Queens Botanical Gardens where you'll find the best that nature has to offer--lush shade trees, winding paths & benches, fragrant flowers and herb gardens lovingly tended to. It's, by far, the most unspoiled acreage... More

A pleasant and restive day in a garden of delight. Not very big but good for a family outing and meditation. Comfortable seating areas but placed too far apart

Lovely day with family. Nice free guided tour. A grateful way to relax from the hectic NYC. If you are disabled you can take a tram to get around the Gardens.

We went to the Botanical Gardens looking forward to an relaxing time and we weren't disappointed. The park had many varied varieties and were set across the area in a very nice setting. However, that being said...the grounds themselves seem a little unkempt, I could see if the weather was bad for a few days, but this was a stellar... More

We went here with our 86 year old mother. The paths are paved and even (perfect for strollers too)! Several people were doing Tai Chi as a group, others individually. A wide variety of plants, something always in bloom! Many different habitats.

My wife and I were pleasantly surprised on our visit to the Queens Botanical Garden. There are many quiet paths with a wide variety of bushes, ground cover, flowers, plants and trees. Not as perfectly groomed as some gardens we've visited but a beautiful oasis in the middle of the city.

We visited this botanical garden on a Saturday morning. The gardens are well utilized by locals exercising, doing Ti Chi and strolling the small grounds. I was uninspired by the gardens. The best garden was locked "wedding garden". Sad, this place could be so much more. The gift shop had reasonably priced items. I purchased honey made in Pennsylvania. The... More

Maybe I didn't go at a good time, but I really wasn't very impressed with the gardens. It looked like they had construction going on and it was fairly barren. However, the areas that were well maintained were pretty enjoyable. It was a nice little area to walk through, but it wasn't anything spectacular.
