Best full soccer field in the middle of a residential neighborhood (2008)


It's a sleepy section of Queens, far enough out for people to live in houses and drive cars.

METROPOLITAN OVAL offers a regulation-size sea of pristine artificial turf, with the Manhattan skyline glittering in the background.
