Queens is home to 2.3 million residents. With vibrant arts, international cuisine, beautiful parks, and world-class sporting venues, it’s no wonder why the borough is so popular. As the most culturally diverse of NYC’s five boroughs, Queens has something for everyone. Sports fans can enjoy baseball games at Citi Field, home of the New York Mets. At the adjacent USTA Billie King National Tennis Center, the world’s greatest tennis players compete at the US Open Tennis Championships every August. Nearby is the stunning Flushing Meadows Corona Park, and the vibrant neighborhood of Flushing, where you can sample some of the best Asian food in New York City.
Queens is a year-round destination, with plenty of shops, boutiques and attractions including Fort Tilden. This beloved beach is known as the inspiration for the song “Rockaway Beach,” by Forest Hills’ genre-defining punk luminaries The Ramones. It is also home to two major NYC airports New York John F. Kennedy International Airport and La Guardia Airport.
