After scoping out the Drive In jaunted over to World’s Fair Park. The walk included passing the Ashe Stadium where many tennis events are held.
Close up of Statutes in front of Stadium
And for those who don’t know Arthur Ashe, shame on you, so let me enlighten. Arthur was an American tennis player. As a black man he won several firsts, here are a few:
- Won 3 grand slam titles
- First black player in the US Davis Cup
- Only black man to ever win singles at Wimbeldon
Sadly, we lost this man too young at 50, however his impact remains worldwide.
World’s Fair Park
After passing the “globe” numerous times on my trips to the airport, finally received a close up. It’s been over 50 years since my visit to the World’s Fair. She’s held up good and all of NYC was enjoying her Park on my visit. What a fun place.
On your visit stop by the vendor selling spicy hot dogs. What a taste treat.. And don’t forget the gelato, it is sublime.
