|Flushing Meadows Corona Park, NYC Photos Gallery - Page 2|
|The paths leading into Flushing Meadows Park from the #7 train are truly beautiful and seem to go on forever with their tree lined sides. Especially pleasant are the shadows cast onto the pavement by the branches overhead. This park's nearly 1,300 acres makes it the 3rd largest in NYC. Once a New York City eyesore it was converted into an appropriate site for the 1939-40 and 1964-65 World's Fairs.||Within the park is the Queens Zoo, The Hall of Science which is one of the largest of its kind in the world, sporting game fields, the Queens Museum, an Outdoor pool, and Meadow Lake at which Rowboats and Pedal Boats are available (just not at the time of this writing in the Summer of 2003, but they should soon be open again to the public). 'and of course there's Shea Stadium, home of our NY Mets and the US Tennis Center where the US Open takes place.|
|In 1997 the U.S. Tennis Center’s main stadium in New York City was named Arthur Ashe Stadium in honor of the late Arthur Ashe (1943-1993).||Arthur Ashe, the
first African American Man to win a major tennis tournament was and still
is considered to be a legend in the sport of tennis.
This stadium which serves as more than just a fixture for the US Open every year seats 23,000 people.
