Sean Says:

Here’s a good tip for everyone not very familiar with the Queens area.


It’s a free website that gives you directions to and from the US Open venues from anywhere in the Tri-State metro area using public transportation (like buses, subways, etc) driving, and even walking.

Also, in case you want to grab some food or maybe stop by a bar before or after the Open, there are other features like maps and neighborhood guides to help you out. There is even a place to book a hotel reservation and check the weather before heading out to the match.

Check it out.

Enjoy the Tournament!
