Arts & Culture
Old Quaker Meeting House
This meeting house—a National Historic Landmark, the oldest house of worship in New York state, and the second-oldest Quaker meeting house in the entire United States—is still an active house of worship and looks remarkably similar to the way it did when it was first built, in 1694.
Flushing Meadows Corona Park
The largest park in Queens (and fourth largest park in all of New York City) has a little something for everyone, from jocks to artists: green recreational spaces for baseball, soccer and cricket, playgrounds, skateboarding areas, handball courts, dog runs, the Queens Museum, the New York Hall of Science, the Queens Zoo, USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center (home of the US Open) and Citi Field, home to the Mets.
Hyatt Place Flushing/LaGuardia Airport
The new, ultramodern 168 room Hyatt Place Flushing/LaGuardia Airport is built atop three glass-fronted levels of world-class retail shopping and a variety of ethnic and American restaurants located in Flushing, Queens.
Museums & Galleries
Voelker Orth Museum
After being continuously occupied by three generations of the Voelker (and, later, Orth) family, this house was turned into a museum—it maintains the homestead as it was in the era of original homeowner Conrad Voelker (who purchased the house in the late 1800s).
