    Walked through the park after visiting the Queens Zoo - there is a ton to see here, including some of the sculptures from the 1964 World's Fair, and the stadium for the US Open. There is tons of space and lots of families, kids, groups, outside playing and enjoying the sun.

    The perfect choice to take in an afternoon ball game and enjoy the Mets and the weather. Try out the Metropolitan for a snack and drink and watch the game from a sky view.

    We took a ride into the city for a Sunday of fun. The ride was smooth and on time. Trains were clean and conductors were friendly. The transfer at Jamaica was short and pleasant. We love the LIRR, much easier than driving.

    This is a nice public park in Long Island City, from where you have wonderful views of Manhattan's skyline. It is free, and not full of tourist like other places in New York City. There are many options to eat nearby

    Given that Tripadvisor continues to ignore my attempt to enter new destinations (like VANDERBILT MOTOR PARKWAY) I will comment on the VMT on this Cunningham Park site.
    The VMT runs just across my building in Oakland Gardens and we use it very frequently for great walks and exercise. It is a wonderful trail spoiled somewhat by occasional boorish bicycle riders who ignore the signs to slow down for pedestrians (just like they do on regular city streets) forcing some of us to jump out of our way. And yes, I am NOT a fan of NYC bicycle riders).

    Other than that, it is a wonderful long trail enjoyable in almost every season.

    I. Love. The. US. Open! The Billie Jean King Tennis Center has to be one of my favorite places on earth for the two weeks of the year it comes alive.

    I spend several full days a year visiting the incredible tennis in Flushing Meadows, and this year was as good as ever.

    If you have the disposable income for it, I can highly recommend getting tickets for good seats at a night session in Arthur Ashe. The experience can be absolutely electric, if you have the stamina for it. They can go very late sometimes... I was there past 3:00am one night, but that's exceptionally late even for US Open standards.

    The experience changes throughout the two weeks; in the first week (early rounds) you can see a ton of incredible tennis on the outer courts. You typically see lower ranked players take on each other, or higher ranked players taking on lower ranked players.

    On the other hand, the second week (round of 16, QF, SF, F) has far fewer matches, but you tend to see the higher ranked players take on each other which has the potential for some thrilling experiences. I think the QF rounds give you the most bang for your buck in terms of quality vs quantity of tennis.

    One of NYC's beautiful beaches! I'm sure it's a lot busier in the summer, but even during the winter months it was nice to walk along the boardwalk. I think surf lessons may be available during the warmer months as well.

    I came here late in the afternoon just to explore, not expecting much. The third floor history of film and television making was interesting. My favorite though was the Jim Henson exhibit on the second floor, exploring the life and work of the creator of Muppets and Sesame Street, with tons of original art and items.

    One of my favorite places in Astoria! It’s a nice place for all people to walk, bike, or just layout a blanket and relax. In the summer they have a pool.

    I am from CA and my folks in NY told me about this museum. It is very unique. Rock curving arts exhibition. There was a nice garden outside with Rock exhibit as well. The museum store (inside) was fun to explore (pricey though). You can experience something you can NOT from other regular "art" (say...painting....) museums. Great place. At this time, FRIDAYS admissions are free. Yes, I went on Friday (7/1/22).

    Nice shop to go around for few minutes, while you hang around the shopping area before heading to the specific gate for boarding. The store has some nice collections. If you are an occasional or rare visitor to NYC and you have missed buying souvenirs in the City tour, here's the last chance to pickup something nice. Am glad to see this being listed inn TA for review by TA users. Nice !!

    It's one of the smaller WCS zoos located in Flushing Meadows Corona Park - the layout is circular with lots of paths branching off the main road to see the animals up close. Sea lion feedings are three times a day. They have bears, bison, sea lions, and many other smaller animals.
