The park looks simple, just a pattern of paths and alleys, yet I've found something realy magic and spacial in this place. Maybe because the park was laid for the World Fairs. The Unisphere - blows me away, even thought I never was a fan...More

We went to the park to see Paul Simon. It was beautiful and even though there were so many people the public bathrooms were actually quite clean. Everyone we met was friendly!

We were staying in Flushing and walked through the park every morning. We only saw the part near the tennis area. I would like to get to the zoo and museum some day.

We needed to stretch our legs a bit and decided to walk the park. It was a great walk and we enjoyed the people watching and access to NYSci, the Queens Museum and Zoo.

This is one of the iconic sites in New York which is so well known. The site of the 1964 World's Fair is now a park. The Unisphere dominates the landscape.

Visitors and residents of New York tend to focus on Manhattan, but there are great places to visit in Queens. We went to the science museum in Queens (NYSCI), which was free on Sunday between 10-11 am (parking was $10), and which was really interesting...More

Yankees at Yankee Stadium vs. Mets at Citifield (10 Replies)
My mother and I have decided we want to go to a baseball game during our trip. Get a taste of it. Now we just have to decide when and where and what. I understand the Yankees are the better team, more iconic perhaps, plus they are playing against the Red Sox when we're there. On paper, that combination seems quite a rocker. But then I read that many consider Citifield to be a better stadium overall. And I'm really after the overall experience, not just the game itself and how well...More

Yankees-Red Sox is "the greatest rivalry in sports." The atmosphere at these games is always intense and the fact that it will be at the end of the season makes little difference, especially since both teams will probably be in contention. The game is almost certainly sold out and tickets will be very expensive. The Mets are going through another disappointing season (this has, unfortunately, become their tradition). The Reds are pretty good. There will be a decent-sized crowd, but it...More
