Queens is the largest borough in terms of area and is home to the two New
York City airports - Laguardia and Kennedy (JFK).  In addition, Queens
has many fun places to visit.

Shea Stadium
Shea Stadium has been home to the New York Mets baseball team since
1964.  Located in Flushing Queens, the ballpark is in earshot of Laguardia
airport and we do mean earshot, as the roar of airplanes overhead is a
common occurrence during games.  Unlike the ballpark in the Bronx, the
parking is convenient and best of all you don't have to deal with Yankee
fans.  (Editors Note - author is a lifelong Mets fan). You can also get to the
Stadium via the 7 subway train.

National Tennis Center
The National Tennis Center is also located in Flushing Queens very close to
Shea Stadium and home to the U.S. Open. It is also the largest public tennis
facility in the world which means that when the U.S. open is not being
played, the average person can play on the same courts used by the best
players in he world.  The center includes 33 outdoor courts and 9 indoor
courts.  In addition there is also Louis Armstrong Stadium and Arthur Ashe
Stadium on these premises. The National Tennis Center is open to the public
7 days a week, 11 months a year and closes only on New Years,
Thanksgiving, and Christmas.

New York Hall of Science
New York City's largest selection of hands-on science exhibits can be found
at the New York Hall of Science located in Flushing Meadows Corona Park
There are over 100 exhibits visitors can explore including machines that
change the tone and pitch of your voice, soap bubbles that are bigger than
people, and a room where people seem to get bigger and smaller.

Queens Museum of Art
Located in Flushing Meadows Park, the Queens Museum of Art features the
work of local and international artists.  A must see exhibit at this museum is
The Panorama of New York City.  This features a replica model of New
York City broken down in amazing detail.
