A great NYC park for people-watching, this was the site of previous World Fairs and offers visitors bicycle paths, the Queens Wildlife Conservation Center, a carousel, freshwater fishing, indoor ice-skating rink and marina.
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
I went for a hike from the pond to Flushing, only to find there is no path through
the park, There were no signs until I got to the closed bridge, and had to walk 1/2 hour to get back where
Queens, New York hosts an epic playground, Flushing Meadows Corona Park, for everyone’s unique desires. This 897 acre park is the 4th largest public park in NYC. It was once host to the 1939 & 1964 World’s Fair and Shea Stadium. It currently houses Citifield...More
This site was on my must visit list for my next NYC trip, and here I am! The park is very beautiful with old growth trees and carefully tended flower gardens. Highlight is the Unisphere and it’s fountains, the are fabulous! We also enjoyed the...More
Arrived here wanting to view the Unisphere. First parking lot was on the opposite side of park and interior roads were blocked. Headed back to the confusing highway system and finally got there. Be sure to search for Unisphere. Lots of people walking around and...More
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

Not much for free.You can see some of the early space rockets that were launched by walking in the park. There is also the Queens Zoo within the park where you can see some of the farm animals from outside without entering the zoo. The zoo is relatively inexpensive, $8 for adults and $5 for kids.If you decide to go, there is only a small expensive sandwich place to eat. There are two sides of the zoo, one farm animals, the other wild animals both for that admission price. Other than that there is the Globe, playgrounds, and some small bodies of water. I don't know about the Tennis Center.
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
