A single day is probably not enough to visit this huge park. It is not overly busy on a typical day so those looking for some peace and quiet would find this place ideal. Lots of picture-worthy attractions, including Queens Museum and the Unisphere, a steel sculpture of the globe.

It is great fun to wander through this park and remember the World's Fair held in these fields soon after I first moved to NYC. Several friends and family members visited me from Wisconsin and California over the two years and we visited many of the exhibits. Yesterday I found an article on a piece of newspaper blowing in the... More

Since I walk my dog in this park on an almost weekly basis, it feels a little bit like cheating reviewing it on trip advisor -it is maybe a 10 minute trip walking for me but I want people to know how much this park has to offer if you have the time and interest in really exploring. There is... More

So you travel across the world as a tennis fan and decide to call in on one of the four Grand Slam venues, this one being in the US. Melbourne is open and welcoming out of season, Wimbledon can't wait to take you around and Flushing Meadows? No visitors, no tours, no sympathy, no alternative suggestions. Zippo!! What about a...

Everyone is talking about the worlds fair and tennis and whatever. More importantly, THIS IS WHERE THEY SHOT THE ORIGINAL MEN IN BLACK. Driving on the highway and seeing this was such a nostalgic moment. Worth the visit.

I had heard many stories over the years about the New York World's Fair of 1964 - 1965 that was held at Flushing Meadows Corona Park, and was always curious about visiting this historic location. When my family and I visited a few weeks ago, we were not disappointed. This is a beautiful park, suitable for the whole family, full... More

I was at the World's Fair in '64. Enjoyed the concerts at the Singer Bowl and the New York State Pavilion after the fair. And I still enjoy the atmosphere that this park generates. Stop by and see a model of New York City. It's great.

Found getting the subway to flushing meadows very easy; the walk to the tennis from the station is very short. Well organised getting in to flushing meadows and queues weren't too long. Lots of choice for food and drink, including veggie options. Found everything to be very clean and well presented. Easy to find way around. Only thing we weren't... More
