Forget the Hamptons and the North Fork, the best place to spend Labor Day weekend is, go figure, Flushing, Queens. The late-summer vibe at Corona Park during this 14-day tennis tournament is a mellow buzz, like a glass of rose on a porch swing during the magic hour. Let us book your tickets for a day or the whole long weekend.
While you're in the area, check out some of the best Asian and Southeast Asian eateries the city has to offer: White Bear for hot wontons in oil, Nan Xiang Xia Long Bao for soup dumplings, Fu Run for Chinese spare ribs, and Dosa Hutt for its namesake savory crepes.
