As the largest and most ethnically diverse borough, Queens offers endless things to see and do—and fall is the perfect time to get out and explore. From late October to mid-November, vibrant leaf displays provide the perfect backdrop for an afternoon of wandering through the borough’s many neighborhoods and parks. Located in the heart of Queens, Flushing Meadows–Corona Park is a 1,255-acre expanse with bicycle paths, basketball courts, playgrounds and a stunning 12-story globe that was once the centerpiece of the 1964 World’s Fair.
