I ♥ QUEENS

Last year when i went to Queens i totally didn't like it. Just got off at a random stop and it obviously wasn't the right one.


So, this year we tried again..


And we ended up at Flushing Meadows Corona Park.


It was fucking awesome!! I totally loved it!


You get to see all these remnants and ruins from the 1939-40 and 1964-65 New York World's Fairs. It's just totally amazing and space age.


Some space age observation towers.


This is pretty awesome! Time capsules!

"Buried alongside the 1938 capsule, this container holds an additional 50,000 microfilm pages, tranquilizers, one checkered bikini, credit cards, a fifty-star American flag, tektite, Beatles record "A Hard Day's Night" birth control pills, plastic wrap material from Echo II satellite, Kent filter cigarettes, detergent, freeze dried foods, irradiated seeds, a plastic heart valve, an electric toothbrush, and desalted Pacific Ocean water."


 The New York Hall of Science.


Yeah, so overall i would really recommend this as a destination if you want to see something a bit different on your next trip to New York. I'll be back!
