Queens Guide

Queens is one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in the United States, with more delicious food, lively spaces, and rich culture than you could ever hope to catch in just one visit. Queens is New York City’s largest borough, and it’s also one of the most diverse communities in the country. When you visit, you’ll meet residents from all over the world.

 

The borough is a fantastic place to soak up live sporting events and enjoy world class art. Baseball fans will want to experience a game at CitiField, home of the New York Mets. If you love tennis, you can also catch the US Open in the borough.

 

Queens is also home to stunning institutions like the cutting edge art museum MoMA PS1, the Museum of the Moving Image, and the New York Hall of Science. One of the area’s crown jewels is Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, an expansive outdoor space that fills up each weekend with families and tourists alike. The park is home to the Queens Museum, and was the site of the 1964-1965 New York World’s Fair. Plenty of structures built for the fair still stand today, including the Unisphere, a massive statue and water feature in the shape of the globe.

 

Another major Queens perk? The views of the Manhattan skyline. The Queens waterfront, especially in the Long Island City neighborhood, provides a breathtaking glimpse of the world’s most famous skyscrapers. You can hop on the ferry at the waterfront for a scenic ride, or wander through Gantry Plaza state park for a peek on the ground. On the weekends, the park also hosts a fantastic food market. You’ll want to sample as many dishes as possible, because if there’s one thing Queens does well (though, let’s be real, there’s much more than just one thing), it’s phenomenal food.
