Summer is an ideal time to hop the 7 train to Queens and explore the many stops through the City’s most diverse borough. Queens is home to a range of neighborhoods, from art-centric Long Island City to international food enclaves like Flushing for Asian eats, Jackson Heights for Indian dishes and Astoria for Greek fare. Find numerous outdoor activities at venues such as the free Socrates Sculpture Park, the Queens Botanical Garden and the Bohemian Hall & Beer Garden. Looking to enjoy a day with the family? Board NY Waterway for a cool ride to a Mets game at Citi Field. Or visit Flushing Meadows Corona Park, whose facilities include sports fields, playgrounds and the Queens Museum, which is celebrating the 50th and 75th anniversaries of the 1964 and 1939 World’s Fair with special exhibitions like Andy Warhol’s 13 Most Wanted Men.
