Many people visit Flushing for sports; it’s where you’ll find Citi Field (home of baseball’s Mets) and the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center (site of late summer’s US Open Tennis Championships). There’s also the gorgeous Flushing Meadows Corona Park. Stroll by the iconic Unisphere—built for the 1964 World’s Fair—and then get some Asian food in the neighborhood proper. Flushing’s large Chinese population surpassed that of Manhattan’s Chinatown years ago, and overall two-thirds of Flushing residents were born outside of the United States. Explore the area’s shops for unusual food items, ancient herbal remedies and rare Japanese comic books.
Flushing is quintessential Queens: culture, history and scenery abound. It borders Flushing Meadows Corona Park, where landmarks like the Queens Museum remain from not one but two World’s Fairs. The adjoining botanical garden is also worth a lengthy stroll; fuel the excursion with world-famous dumplings and other Asian eats.See Highlights
