Парк в  Квинсе: Помните, в конце «Men in Black -1» Кей и Джей расстреливают насекомых-инопланетян в парке, где странные конструкции на башнях, в конце концов оказываются летающими тарелками – и улетают… Так вот, все это происходит в парке:  Flushing Meadows–Corona Park, который определенно стоит посетить.

Информация: This massive green space still features remnants of the 1964–1965 World’s Fair, including the 140-foot-high Unisphere, a mammoth steel globe that was the fair’s symbol (and site of the apocalyptic battle scene between humans and aliens in the first Men in Black movie). Also visible are the remains of the New York State Pavilion, erected by Philip Johnson for the fair. Measuring 350 feet by 250 feet, this now-eerie plaza is bordered by 16 100-foot steel columns.

Stroll across the legendary structure and take in the view—if you look to the south, you’ll see Governors Island and the Statue of Liberty. Once you’ve hit Brooklyn, head into Brooklyn Heights and stroll along the Promenade, overlooking lower Manhattan.
