On any given week, there are so many events at Queens College that many students linger long after their classes. Those who venture off campus will find shopping and dining within easy walking distance. The attractions of other neighborhoods range from museums to professional sports, sometimes all in one place: The Queens Museum of Art
, famed for its Panorama of the City of New York, shares Flushing Meadows Corona Park with Citi Field, home of the New York Mets
, and the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center
