Queens

Neighborhood Highlights

Fall's crisp, cool days are ideal for exploring Queens’ many beautiful outdoor spaces, such as Flushing Meadows Corona Park, where you can gaze at colorful leaves, take a hike or try your hand at a round of par-3 pitch-and-putt golf. The green space, which played host to two world’s fairs (in 1939 and 1964), also houses the historic Queens Museum, where the Panorama—a huge three-dimensional map of New York—is on display. At the serene 40-acre Queens Botanical Garden, not only is autumn flora at its peak but the garden flourishes with seasonal plants, a busy Bee Garden and the olfactorily pleasing Fragrance Walk. For fun and learning, families can visit hands-on science and technology center the New York Hall of Science or the Queens Zoo, home to fluffy Flemish Giant bunnies.
