Flushing Meadows Corona Park

At over 897 acres (363 hectares), the Flushing Meadows Corona Park is Queens' largest and New York City's fourth-largest. It is the site of two former world's fairs, one in 1939 and the other in 1964, as well as the home to the famous symbol of the 1964 Fair: the Unisphere. While its immaculate pastures are home to several public facilities such as the Shea Stadium, the home of the mighty New York Mets, the USTA National Tennis Center, along with the New York Hall of Science, the Queens Museum of Art, the Arthur Ashe Stadium, Citi Field and the Louis Armstrong Stadium are definitely Flushing Meadow's most noticeable sights. The park really comes to life during the American Open, when it receives its highest number of attendees.

Prospect Park

This beautiful Brooklyn park was created by the same architects responsible for the splendid Central Park in Manhattan. Unlike its more famous cousin in Manhattan, Prospect Park sits pretty amidst a primarily residential area and is not surrounded by skyscrapers. Many Olmsted fans dub this 526 acre (212.87 hectare) park his crowning achievement. It features horseback riding, ice skating, tennis, paddle boats and a carousel, as well as the Prospect Park Wildlife Center. There is a band shell for concerts, and Prospect Lake is often teeming with ducks, geese and swans.

New York Botanical Garden

Covering 250 acres (101 hectares), the New York Botanical Garden is a blend of rocks, waterfalls, hills, rivers, woods, ponds, plants, and of course, flowers. The property is beautiful and a National Landmark and includes an interactive area for children. The restored Enid A. Haupt Conservatory is a Victorian-era greenhouse. Don't forget to visit the Shop in the Garden - a store which offers a wide range of goods, from books and garden products to jewelry and body products. Admission prices are higher during peak season, so check the website for details. For those interested in fresh fruits and vegetables, the garden hosts a farmer's market from June through November each year.

One World Trade Center

An unflagging symbol of fortitude, the One World Trade Center rises from a sea of buildings in Lower Manhattan, its beautiful steel ascent a reminder of a dark day in American history. This brilliant icon soars to 104 floors, and when it was completed in 2012, it superseded the Empire State Building as the tallest structure in New York City. At an astonishing height of 1,776 feet (541.33 meters), it is also the tallest building in America and the Western Hemisphere. The National September 11 Memorial & Museum flanks the southern end of the center, while rumbling fountains spill over granite walls and collect into twin pools north of the tower. The parapet of the pools is inscribed with almost 3000 names of the lives lost during the 9/11 attacks, allowing visitors for a moment of quiet reflection. When viewed from the lowest point from the ground, the top of the tower appears to converge and resemble a pyramidal apex. Another interesting feature about the One World Trade Center is that the height of the structure is a cleverly planned allusion to the year in which in the American Declaration of Independence was signed. A marvel of modern design, the One World Trade Center is a significant landmark that links the past and the future of this great American city.

Irish Hunger Memorial

This memorial is dedicated to the devastating Great Irish Potato Famine of 1845 - 1852. The Famine resulted in nearly one million deaths in Ireland and forced countless others to emigrate to America, many of whom came to New York. The memorial is made of stones from all 32 counties of Ireland. It also uses native soil and vegetation straight from Ireland, as well as slabs of text separated by layers of Irish limestone from over 300 million years ago. The memorial also features an authentic 19th century Irish cottage.
