We stayed in the Borough of Brooklyn, south of Flush Meadows where the tournament is played, So spend some time playing at McCarren Park’s seven excellent courts. There is a fee that you have to pay through New York City’s Parks and Rec system but it’s worth it. The courts are great and looking up at the Brooklyn skyline makes it feel real that you’re in New York.
