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

This is one of my favorite parks in New York.
Astoria Park offers activities for everyone. It has basketball courts, tennis courts, running tracks, playgrounds and even an outdoor swimming pool for the summer.
It’s great for children, dogs and adults. Definitely a must see in Astoria!

We were visiting over Christmas holiday and took a walk down to the park. It is very well kept, clean and felt safe. The Queensborough bridge lights were beautiful with the church bells ringing in the back ground seemed almost magical. Would like to return when it's a bit warmer and stay longer.

Learn behind-the-scenes secrets only an authentic NY cop can tell you! Hear little-known New York stories from the real deal – great for both tourists and New Yorkers! See the locations where some of your favorite movies like "The Godfather" were shot! Discover real-life crime scenes and hear the stunning true stories of an NYC law enforcement insider on this unique and unforgettable tour. Your tour begins at Lt. Joseph Petrosino Park, located at the intersection of Cleveland Place, Kenmare and Lafayette St, in SoHo.
G'day Ike, gotta say we really enjoyed your friendly & informative company for the 2.5hrs. It was a tour filled with insider knowledge combining a passion for the historical criminal scene in NY and what was created in film. Couldn't get over that we actually witnessed real police in action during the tour - I guess, that being an ex cop you were able to stage these for us too. Way to go Ike, worth every dollar spent. As Paul Hogan would say, "now thats a tour"

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!

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!

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.

At New York City's most visited museum and attraction, you will experience over 5,000 years of art from around the world. The Met is for anyone as a source of inspiration, insight and understanding. You can learn, escape, play, dream, discover, connect.
I’m not a huge fan of art galleries but I can imagine if this is your thing you will love it. Lots of great displays, sculptures, portraits, landscapes and modern art. Maps available to help navigate this museum with ease. Spent an hour here but you could spend much much longer. Audio guides are available.

Thirteen galleries and an outdoor sculpture garden are the settings for the wide collection of art work by Japanese-American sculptor Isamu Noguchi (1904-1988.)
A highlight to exploring Astoria Queens is seeing the Noguchi Museum. With an in-depth collection of the Japanese-American sculptor's works, in light-filled warehouse-like spaces, lofts, and in a rock garden. From a perfectly balanced one piece stone fountain to large basalt sculptures and small intricate works, the museum is a peaceful respite and enjoyable. The museum is multi-level. You might need a car or taxi to get here. Nearby are the Socrates Sculpture Park and views of the East River. And Uber or Lyft can take you to the Museum of Moving Image and Kaufman Studios. Plenty of great restaurants in Astoria, we've eaten at six, reviewed here in Tripadvisor. - Jim of Red Maps
