Things to do in Flushing, NY

New York's borough of Queens has become a top cultural destination and was recently selected as the best tourism destination in the US for 2015 by Lonely Planet. Step outside our doors and into the most ethnically diverse 115 sq. miles on earth and explore all the things to do in Flushing, located across the East River from Midtown Manhatta. The 7 subway line, dubbed the International Express, has even been designated a part of the National Millennium Trail for its representation of the immigrant experience. 

Downtown Flushing is the largest urban center in Queens, and home to the second largest Chinatown in New York City. Flushing Meadow-Corona Park's 1,255 acres was the site of two World's Fairs (1939 and 1964), and visitors need look no further than the great steel Unisphere to recall that era of history. Just beyond our hotel, you will find the new Citi Field Stadium, home of the New York Mets and the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, which hosts the U.S. Open Tennis Tournament each year in August. Less than two miles away is the New York Hall of Science, a kid-friendly place known for its interactive, hands-on exhibits; the Queens Museum of Art; the Queens Zoo; and the Queens Botanical Garden.
