The Queens Courier asked some locals about Flushing Meadows-Corona Park becoming a landmark.

BY ROSA MICHAELS & ADJANI SHAH

 

Yes, I believe it should be a landmark.
Steven Rodriguez

Definitely, yes.
George Bailey

I think it should be a landmark, it’s the biggest park in Queens.
Darri-Anne Loftin

I think it should be. It was around a long, long time. It’s very historical because the World’s Fair was held there. And I went to the 1965 World’s Fair when I was little.
Toni Mancuso

Yes, it should.
Diana Cordero

Yes. I’ve been here for 13 years and it’s a very established park.
Courtney Lazarus

Yes, I do.
Everon Rampersad’sunair

 

It’s important architecturally and nationally; it has all the artifacts from The World’s Fair…it’s a gathering place for the community.
Fran Claro
