- Citi Field

It is a 10-minute drive from St. Johns but other methods to get there include a 30-minute bike ride and train/busses.
Gather a group of friends and go have some fun in a game atmosphere.

2. Queens Museum
The Queens Museum is also located In Corona-Queens, is actually is right next door to Citi Field.
One of the coolest things on the museum is that they have a Panorama of the City of New York is it is huge. Once you walk in, there is no way to miss it.
Also, they are always having different expositions and experiences opportunities.
It is a trip worth the money.

3. Flushing Meadows Corona Park / Unisphere
The Corona Park is another very cool place to visit, especially in days when its nicer outside. The Unisphere is a just a silver-plated world (nothing like Universal Studios LOL) but getting a picture there is very cool.
Going with friends would be more entertaining and picnics are always common to happen around there (in the nicer days).
It is easy to get there, a 10-minute car ride from campus or public transportation will also get you there.
4. Queens Center Mall
Just like any mall, this is the closest mall to St. Johns. It has the basic necessary stores to find a quick outfit for a hangout, interview or a night out.
Also, the food court is good and being a college student, food is always important, so If you just want to get away from campus food and get a nicer meal, head there and there are a lot of options.
5. Fresh Meadows AMC
Want to go out to the movies with some friends or take a date out? The AMC at Fresh Meadows AMC is actually nice. They have the lay down reclining seats and the environment is actually pretty clean.
