What's Wrong With This Photo?
Let's see. Common sights in Flushing Meadows Park...
Worlds Fair statues and architecture, check.
Overhead planes thundering into LaGuardia, check.
Out of season tourists, huh?
I think Flushing Meadows is a great place, but it doesn't get many tourists outside of those coming to the US Open. It was fun to spot this tourist couple goofing in front of the Worlds Fair-era statue.
If you are a tourist or just want to spend the day like one, I do recommend Flushing Meadows for a mellow day outdoors.
Maybe best of all, you can reserve a court at the US Open where the champs play every August.
Flushing Meadows is safe park to enjoy, but like everywhere, use common sense. I would never recommend walking the park at night. Here's more about Flushing Meadows-Corona Park.
The birds of the Queens Zoo roosts in a unique aviary, a geodesic dome from the Worlds Fair.
Pitch 'n Putt Golf at Flushing Meadows
Flushing Meadows Park has a pitch 'n putt golf course and mini-golf. The entrance to both can be found to the east of the USTA grounds, just outside the park's subway station.
