Did you know that the famous Tiffany lamps are created at the Tiffany Furnace studio in Corona? From dragonflies to flowers and swirly patterns, the designs are unique and the glass technique is innovative. A collection of lamps and glass samples are currently on exhibition at the Queens Museum of Art in Flushing Meadows Corona Park.

Just a few blocks away from the 7 train on 111th Street on the way to Flushing Meadows Corona Park are a few street vendors. If you get hungry, try a stick of barbecued chicken. It’s simply seasoned and for an extra kick throw some hot sauce on it. If that’s not enough, add a side of salchipapas (hot dogs and french fries) and wash it down with some horchata.
The Melbourne Cricket Club is just one of several teams whose batsmen were knocking around the ball this past Sunday in Flushing Meadows Corona Park. No matter how many times I’ve watched these gents do their thing on the three fields near north side of Meadow Lake, I can’t make heads or tails of the game. Dig the uniforms though.
