Located in the New York City borough of Queens, Corona is a neighborhood that may be best known for its brief appearance in a Paul Simon song ("Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard"), but there's much more to this vibrant neighborhood than meets the eye.
Bordered by the Long Island Expressway to the south and just blocks from several Metro Transit Authority subway stops, transportation from Corona to other areas of New York City is relatively simple.
Corona Plaza is a popular place for residents to gather, as is Corona Mac Park. Queens Zoo, Playground for All Children and several baseball diamonds are also located just across the border. In addition, the New York Hall of Science, Arthur Ashe Stadium, Louis Armstrong Stadium and USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center are just a short walk away.
The neighborhood of Corona is home to 16 K-12 schools, making it a popular place for families to live. In addition, Corona is a rather diverse area, with many of its residents having South American or Dominican ancestry. The Plaza at 103rd Street and Roosevelt Avenue is a great place to catch a movie. In an effort to cater to Corona residents, it shows many movies in Spanish or with Spanish subtitles.
