12. See some Grand Slam tennis
There’s nothing like watching the biggest names in tennis duke it out on the US Open’s famous hard court during the biggest tennis tournament in America. NOTHING, GUYS.
13. Hug the Queens Giant
The oldest and tallest tree in NYC, dubbed the Queens Giant, is located in Alley Pond Park. At 133.8ft, this enormous tulip tree has been around over 450 years, which means it was around when the Dutch came to Manhattan/Pogs were cool. Just watch out for the poison ivy nearby.
14. Be a giant in Queens
While you’re at the Queens Museum, visit the magnificent Panorama of the City of New York, which lays out the entirety of NYC in front of you from a bird’s-eye view. NYC’s most infamous urban planner Robert Moses came up with the idea for it for the 1964/65 world’s fair, and it contains 895,000 buildings at a scale of 1:1,200 (1in equals 100ft). All five boroughs are depicted.
