SATURDAY: Sketch the Queens Museum


Each of our five boroughs has at least one if not several interesting museums.  Queens is no exception, except that we hardly visit.  Well, that's easily fixed!

The Queens Museum is in Flushing Meadows Park which was the site of the 1939 World's Fair and the 1964 World's Fair.  It seems that World Fairs have been replaced by other Mega events, but  if you can find an old timer, ask them if they can remember the Fair.  It's a great location and the museum has revolving exhibits. There will be fun views inside and outside.
