Everything to see at Flushing Meadows Corona Park
1) Discover the Unisphere at Flushing Meadows Corona Park
The Unisphere is, as the name suggests, a stainless steel sphere representing the Earth. Standing 42,7 meters high and weighing over 300 tonnes, it was designed by Gilmore D. Clarke to symbolize the theme of the International Fair which was "Peace through Understanding". this Sphere is impressive and worth the detour.
2) Watch a Food Match at City Fields
During your stay in New York you may have the opportunity to attend a Mets game, for novices, this is one of the New York City baseball teams (You should know that New York City has two teams: The Yankees and the Mets).
City Fields, Mets enclosure is a stadium located to the west of the park.
Tip: To purchase your tickets, if you are going to New York during the baseball season, you can go to superbillets.com to make your reservation before the big departure. The site is specialized for this type of service, for my part I have never had any problems.

There are other accesses to the park but I find this solution to be the simplest. While you are in Queens, for Jazz lovers you can visit the Louis Armstrong House Museum.
