But you haven’t been to this Queens Museum, the newly remodeled, expanded and vastly improved facility in Flushing Meadows Corona Park. Its grand reopening is this weekend; see the details in this week’s qboro, the Chronicle’s arts and entertainment section.
Flushing Meadows Corona Park is full of borough staples including the Hall of Science, the Unisphere and the Queens Zoo. But while much of the park hasn’t seen an update in many years, the Queens Museum, however, is coming out with the big guns.
The museum that has been described as struggling or fighting to stay alive has completed a massive remodeling and expansion. Museum representatives are saying that this redesign is in no way a last resort to save the Queens Museum.

It was a great triumph for the people of Queens when public opposition, led by civic activists and echoed in community newspaper editorials and internet blog posts, defeated the misguided plan to build a professional soccer stadium in Flushing Meadows Corona Park.

Most longtime Queens residents are proud that located right in our own borough is one of the world’s major architectural achievements, the Unisphere. Located in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, it is the largest globular structure ever built by man and also the largest structure fabricated entirely of stainless steel. Four hundred seventy tons went into its creation.
The Unisphere towers 12 stories high and weighs over 900,000 tons. It was donated as a permanent gift to the city of New York by U.S. Steel of Pittsburgh. The orbital rings are three-ton stainless steel held with invisible steel wires. The pedestal is made from Cor-ten steel, which is 50 percent stronger than carbon steel.
The streets of Willets Point have remained unusually quiet despite the recent City Council vote approving the monumental $3 billion mixed-use development that would turn the “Valley of Ashes” into one of the largest shopping malls in the city.

As cars were lining up to leave the Citi Field parking lot after a Mets win, hundreds of protestors entered the gates for the final stretch of their march Sunday from Our Lady of Sorrows on 104th Street, never taking a break from rhyming chants in English and Spanish or banging the bottoms of buckets.
For them, the message was clear — tell the City Council to say no to the impending vote on the Willets Point proposal to build a mall on the Citi Field parking lot.
