Give the city’s second-biggest park a day and it’ll show you the world: Its most enduring icon is the Unisphere, the mammoth steel globe created for the 1964 World’s Fair. But there’s also first-rate culture and sports at the New York Hall of Science, the recently reopened (and renamed) Queens Museum, Arthur Ashe Stadium, the Queens Botanical Garden and Citi Field. The rolling green fields also encompass a zoo, a mini golf course, a carousel, six playgrounds, a boating lake, a skate park, a barbecue area, playfields, and a $66 million aquatic and ice arena. What else could you expect from a park this massive?
