For the sixth year in a row, the USTA has donated a kiosk to the Queens Tourism Council and the Queens Chamber of Commerce for the entire tournament, which runs from Aug. 27 to Sept. 9 at the Billie

Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows Corona Park. Volunteers will give away guidebooks, swag items, and information on dining and hospitality while also offering tips and inside information on the borough.

Elected officials, USTA representatives, local civic leaders, and employees of the Queens Chamber of Commerce and the Queens Tourism Council gathered in front of the kiosk for a group photo. In the background is the newly renovated Louis Armstrong Stadium, which now features a retractable roof, an innovative design with natural ventilation to keep fans cool and dry, and 14,000 state-of-the-art seats with enhanced vision lines and shade.
