Even in a city as cosmopolitan as New York, Queens stands out for its diversity—both that of its residents and its offerings. The borough's culinary artists serve up all manner of world cuisine—this map includes Italian, Tibetan, Mexican and Indian restaurants, just a small sample of the veritable smorgasbord you'll find on a 7 train trip through some of the communities here. For other types of culture, there's the Louis Armstrong House Museum, which pays tribute to the jazz legend, and the family-friendly New York Hall of Science, located in Flushing Meadows–Corona Park, also home to the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, site of the US Open tennis tournament. Sports fans will also want to check out Citi Field, the Mets' ballpark, right across the street from the park.
