Around Corona

In recent years, many historic homes in Corona have been converted into high-rise apartment buildings with anywhere from three to ten units. These new developments offer generally affordable housing in contrast to the larger, single-family homes that traditionally make up the neighborhood. There are multi-family homes on certain blocks and some side streets are filled with two or three multi-family homes located quite close to each other.

If you’re in the mood for something to eat, stick to Corona Avenue, which is home to almost every cuisine. Shops sell fresh baked empanadas, delicious steaks, and some of the city’s best tacos. Tortilleria Nixtamal is a neighborhood institution for mouthwatering tacos. Il Triangolo Restaurant offers an Italian dining experience as lovely as any in Manhattan. And for those willing to wait, Rincon Criollo is the place for the best Cuban food in all of Corona.

Moving toward Long Island Expressway, you’ll find that housing developments have become bigger and more modern. Expect to find pools and workout centers, a far cry from the tightly packed multi-family homes in central Corona. The neighborhood is proud of its heritage and home to those who joyfully embrace them. The streets are energetic, with residents running errands locally before heading into work in more metropolitan areas like Queens or Manhattan.

Take advantage of being next to Flushing Meadows-Corona Park and start the evening there. Grab a treat from the beloved Ice King of Corona before making it to dinner. Try Park Side for a formal Italian dinner with white tablecloths and excellent service. Then mix things up at El Coyote Bar for dancing and drinks after dinner. In Corona, the experience of three distinct environments in one evening is just a part of the neighborhood’s charm.

Take time off to embrace all things cultural on this Sunday. Begin your day at Empanadas Cafe for some of the neighborhood’s best empanadas. Then, make your way over to the Louis Armstrong House Museum, which highlights the early living space of the famed musician. Next, The New York Hall of Science in Flushing has 450 interactive exhibits as well as a mini golf course, which is the perfect way to spend a day off. End the day with a walk along the park before getting dinner at Corona Pizza.

The number 7 subway line is the saving grace for those commuting in and out of Corona. The trip to Grand Central only takes about 35 minutes. Owning a car is somewhat normal in Corona, but certainly less popular than in other parts of Queens. Easy access to Grand Central Parkway and the Long Island Expressway make for quick trips to airports and into the city when driving is available.
