Cinemart Cinemas

Reviewed By Donald S - New York City, New York

This is a fairly small neighborhood theater. It was renovated not long ago and offers comfortable leather recliners with a lot of space between rows. If you can get the front row, go for it. It is like being in a private theater. The restroom are clean. Typical movie goer fare. It is located on Metropolitan Avenue in Forest Hills near a wide variety of coffee shops and restaurants. The theater does not have parking so you may have to hunt around a bit. Plan on a two block walk since there is more parking at that distance from Metropolitan - especially to the south. Very reasonable prices as well.

US Open

Each year in the week before and after Labor Day, all eyes in the tennis world are on the USA for the prestigious US Open tournament. The last of the four major international events in professional tennis, the stakes are high, particularly if any home court players or teams are closing in on a 'Grand Slam' win at all four events. Ticket prices run up into the thousands for the most coveted seats, but for a die-hard fan, it is worth it for the chance to see the top athletes in the sport up close.

No Roger Federer but had a wonderful time. Staff were helpful, beautiful grounds and lots to see and explore.
Merchandise were limited as most sold out before...
Transport to and from was easy with the subway! Good food and drinks!
I'll be back in 2018 to see Roger!

Louis Armstrong House Museum

The legacy of the legendary jazz instrumentalist and vocalist, Louis Armstrong, is preserved at this Queens museum.

Reviewed By Samiha A - Brooklyn, New York

Visiting this museum was a very sweet and informative experience. A guided tour (offered in Spanish, too) is required, but will give you a very intimate glance into Armstrong and his wife Lucille's life in their humble house. From original furniture to audio recordings of the couple themselves telling stories of each room, you'll feel like you're walking around the home of a really cool relative that you really like.

Long Island Rail Road

Reviewed By Adam D - Perth, Australia

Decided to take the LIRR from Jamaica to Midtown rather than subway. This was around 20-25 minutes quicker. When buying a ticket at Jamaica just look for the green machines with white tracks. Here you can buy a combined airtrain and LIRR metrocard for a one off journey. This ticket will get you to Penn Station from where you can walk, bus, cab or subway to your hotel. If you plan to later use the subway you will have to buy a seperate metrocard as they are two different systems, confusing I know! Easy journey with room for luggage which cut out the traffic. $12.50 each off peak.

Queens Center

Reviewed By Sarushkaya - New York City, New York

I do not frequent this Shopping Center often, but the couple of times I've been here it has been a positive experience.

There are areas where if weary one can sit and rest while munching on a snack or sipping a beverage.

Plenty of stores to go and browse, department stores like Macy's and JCPenney., smaller niche stores.
My favorite, the Apple Store. The wait is long sometimes, but that usually happens for service in every Apple Store no matter the location.
This time I only had a question about a purchase receipt from Apple. I was told as soon as I showed the agent the email that it was not from Apple, but a scam. Beware!

Parking is expensive by Queens standards, yet convenient.

Generally, two hours is spent per visit.
Until the next time!

This Website was so vital to my trip plans, so I am happy to share our experience with other planners.

Our first evening in Manhattan began with the trip from Newark Airport on a Sunday afternoon. The traffic was mind-boggling for country folk like us. I made the mistake of allowing our Dial 7 driver to choose his own music, and he spent the next hour dancing, directing, and singing to middle eastern belly dancing music. We didn't mind the loud music but would have been happier if he had paid attention to the road. I almost kissed the sidewalk of our hotel once we finally arrived. The Belvedere was our hotel, and we were pleased as we unpacked and headed to the streets for dinner and a "walkabout". Didn't stay out late as we had been travelling all day.

Monday: breakfast was some snack foods we had picked up at a deli the night before. Our tour guide was Steve from MArvelous Manhattan tours. This was a six hour tour in a fourteen passenger bus, and Steve did a great job of presenting an insider's guide to NYC. Not only was he informative about the history of the city, but he was also helpful in explaining the layout of the land, especially Uptown, Midtown, Downtown, and Crosstown, as to selecting the right subway direction or walking destinations. It was a fairly good overview of the city which gave us a better idea of which places to return to later in the week. Lunch was at Katz Deli, which is an experience all in itself. Fortunately he provided instructions to us as to the ticket system and recommending splitting the hot pastrami sandwich between us. Good advice! Its an old fashioned deli. If you plan on going there, present your ticket to the employee behind the counter each time you order another item for lunch. You'll understand better once you're there! My favorite stop on the bus tour was Battery Park. After the tour, we rested for a while in our room before walking to pier 83 to take the Circle Line Sunset Cruise. We had purchased a NYPass coupon book weeks before, and it was included in it. May not have been wise to take two tours on our first day, but this was the only evening we had open. The ship filled up pretty well, so we were glad to be there by 6:30 for the 7:00 departure. Our tour guide on the boat was an older gentlemen (who didn't ask for tips) and was extremely knowledgable about NYC and NJ. It was a good tour and about two hours in length. We walked home and went to bed after our full day.

I believe I'll stop with that day and continue tomorrow...

We walked all around this area, and if you check sometimes the artist open there studios. The art is varied and is absolutely amazing. We stopped for lunch at a local bar, and spent around 2 hours taking over 100 photos.

I am a Yankee fan but I must admit, Citifield is a great structure and in some ways better than the new Yankee stadium. They have great seating and wonderful food vendors. Go Mets?
