Best Place To Score Love - 2002
USTA NATIONAL TENNIS CENTER
While the rest of the country is seeking refuge in church, drugs, and psychiatry offices, Queens is playing tennis. And at the USTA NATIONAL TENNIS CENTER, the largest tennis stadium in the world, we're hooked. Opened in 1997, the home of the U.S. Open seats up to 23,000 spectators. For $20 an hour, anyone can volley back and forth on the same turf where Venus and Serena hang out. Maybe next year, if things don't get better, we'll find solace in golfonly one white-collar sport at a time, please.
