What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

We will provide attendees a reference guide shortly in how to get to our event space but the below is the basics in how to get to Flushing Meadows Park.

By Car

Van Wyck Expressway

  • Van Wyck South - Exit 11 (Jewel Ave) - Leads to an access road, from which an exit leads directly to Meadow Lake parking in the southern part of the park (and a popular BBQ spot).

  • Van Wyck North - Exit 12A (College Point Blvd/LIE) - A bit tricky but follow College Point Boulevard (north) and look for park entrance under expressway on left. Parking for Shea Stadium.

  • Van Wyck North - Exit 13W (Northern Blvd/Shea Stadium) - Leads readily to Shea Stadium and the marina. There is limited parking adjacent to the marina.

Long Island Expressway (LIE)

  • LIE Exit 22 to Grand Central Parkway (west, Triboro Bridge) - Then exit almost immediately at 9E (see above).

  • LIE Exit 22 to College Point Boulevard (tricky) - Head north on College Point and look for park entrance under expressway on left. Parking available for Shea Stadium.

By Subway

The easiest way to Flushing Meadows is by the #7 subway. The #7 subway line stops at Willets Point/Shea Stadium, above Roosevelt Avenue in the northern part of the Park. The station is surrounded by Shea Stadium parking. Walk down pedestrian ramps to the main Park.

It's just a short walk to the US Open's East Gate entrance. Walk further south to the Unisphere.

By Bus

Take the Q48 to Roosevelt Avenue at Shea Stadium, and walk south into the Park. For the Queens Zoo and NY Hall of Science, take the Q23 or Q58 to Corona and 51st Avenues and 108th st, and walk east into the Park.

What can I bring into the event?

It's open to any food item you wish with the exception of the below items. We strongly encourage to bring your own blankets or picnic cloth as we will have a limited amount.

  • No Alcohol

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
