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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

The Centurion Lounge

Reviewed By oceanpalace - Dallas, Texas

Located in the same pre-security Terminal B area as that terminal's food court, you navigate to the 2nd floor and then take the elevator one more up to the 3rd floor. This actually helps weed out the riff-raff. Entry is free for Platinum and Centurion Amex members; fee-based for all other Amex card holders.

Once inside, you are offered complimentary gourmet food and alcohol / wine / coffee / tea / cappucino / latte. The food entrees are excellent - for this month of September there was tender fried chicken and pork tenderloin.

The seating areas offer a very nice oasis from the hectic hustle/bustle of the airport. This is especially valued during the seemingly-never-ending LGA construction. You will really be able to de-stress here for however long you would like to stay.

Free WiFi, and large TV screens along one of the walkways. Note that this is not a large lounge, and can get crowded during peak times.

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?

Forest Hills Stadium

Reviewed By JimL_RedMaps - New York City

Adjacent to the beautiful and historic Forest Hills Gardens is this stadium that is the original home of the US Open. Weather permitting, small venue made for a great night of music. Very convenient to get to from the city with subway and rail stations.

If you have time, take a walk before the show to see the streets and homes of Forest Hills. This is one of the best planned and architecturally charming communities in the area. Frederick Law Olmstead designed the landscaping. Jim Red Maps

Museum of the Moving Image

The only museum in the United States that is devoted exclusively to the history, art and technology of movies, television and video.

Reviewed By Charles L

My family went there out of the way coz we read from a tour book saying it as a top new attractions for families. Man it was so wrong. The place is definitely not kids-friendly. Our kids, 12 and 8, finished the museum in under one hour. There are a few interesting exhibits. But most of museum is boring, dark, spooky, or even scary for children. One video exhibit even has animated porn! Workers there are very unfriendly. Not going back any time soon. And I will NOT recommend it to any friend with kids. Not worth the money and time to get there.
