Article name[edit]

I'm a Queens resident, and I almost always hear this park referred to as "Flushing Meadows-Corona Park." Is there a legitimate reason why this article should be named "Flushing Meadows Park" and not "Flushing Meadows-Corona Park"? I will rename the article if such justification is lacking. --Larry V (talk | contribs) 21:50, 27 June 2006 (UTC)


I'm a Flushing Queens resident and the reason why the park is called Flushing Meadows park is because the park lies my in Flushing than in Corona. Only when reffering to the Far north-west section of the park do they include corona in it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 151.202.104.48 (talkcontribs)

I am a Flushing resident as well, I have heard "Flushing Meadows-Corona Park", "Flushing Meadows Park", and "Corona Park". I have to say the first two names are a lot more common. --Voidvector 06:04, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

I'm a Queens Resident and NEVER hear "Flushing Meadows-Corona Park". only "Flushing Meadows". My daughter plays high school soccer and thye PSAL web site refers to it as "Flushing Meadow". Jimryan

Hi, folks, I found the answer to your questions: "Flushing Meadow Park" was the originally proposed name for this tract of land that was entirely reclaimed from the ashdump. I found an NYTimes article that says the name was changed in 1964 "'salve the wounded pride' of Corona, Queens, by changing the name of Flushing Meadow Park, site of the World's Fair, to Flushing Meadows-Corona Park." (see article for citation). I'm going to make some changes so that we use the original name for the intro and such.Fixifex (talk) 18:30, 29 January 2012 (UTC)
