Event

Queens goes POP! for the Fourth

The Independence Day celebration rolls across the borough from Bayside to Long Island City, stopping in the parks — like Forest Park here — for picnics, then at Louis Armstrong’s house — now a museum in Corona — for Pop’s annual birthday bash, through Astoria Park and ends after dark under the landmark Pepsi sign for Macy’s fireworks on the East River./ Photos by Steve Malecki and Michael Shain Comment
