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.

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!

Must go. Took my teenage daughters. Pay 50 to use facility, receive small towel, wrist band and locker. Charge services to your wristband. Steam, sauna come in different variations. 4 pools (3 outdoor and heated tonite even in cold weather) with jets to sooth every bodY part. Bar and food. Though, do not get excited about the Korean food. Packaged Ramen.
Not cheap. 100 for massage for an hour.
Clean and well run.
If you are feeling adventurous, get naked, go into (single sex) naked room, enjoy pools and infrared room and have a scrub and massage amongst the other naked ladies and black-indie clad masseuses.
Loved it.

Fort Totten

Reviewed By AsISeeThem - New York

I've been here twice in the past week and really enjoyed walking around looking at the old buildings. Unfortunately, some of the old buildings didn't receive any upkeep and are collapsing.

There are softball & soccer fields, people jogging. I didn't see any dogs, don't know if they're prohibited.

All in all, a good place to stroll around, have a picnic or sit on a bench and look out over the water.

The trip was excellent. The bus is really confortable and counts with WIFI and AC. Patricia, the tour guide, knows a lot of Washingon history and made this journey really enjoyable. If you go to NY, it's a must-do excursion. 100% recommended.

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.

Reviewed By Reyanne S

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!

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’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.

Reviewed By CHAMPSFOOD - Whitestone, New York

Had been going here since it first opened on 14 ave. The caliper of the massagers have gradually decreased over the years. The receptionists are TERRIBLE. They are Rude on the phone. Appointments are hard to get if you have a gift or discount coupon. It seems they only have 2 regular therapist and thus limited appointment times
