With Citi Field (home to the New York Mets) and the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center (the site of the US Open tennis tournament) in Queens, sports fans will cheer. And for those who crave culture, Queens offers museums like the Museum of the Moving Image, MoMA PS1, and the Noguchi Museum.
Queens neighborhoods are as distinct as its people. Located just across the East River from Manhattan, Long Island City and Astoria are perfect for commuting to Midtown, while two international airports, also make Queens convenient to nearly anywhere in the world. Families love Forest Hills’ many parks and great schools. Beach lovers adore surf-side Rockaway Beach. And Ridgewood, which borders Brooklyn, is a hipster favorite. No matter the neighborhood, there’s no denying the vitality and raw energy of this ever-changing, eclectic borough.
