I didn't know, but I don't think so.
Media never showed something like that....
besides, Americans aren't so sadic as Brits.

They said NEAR, not that it was IN.

well then what's the fucking point? to an outsider anything is "near" when it comes to the city. but it really isn't that close at all.. flushing is closer to manhattan than it is to the bronx, and you'd have to cross the east river.
and what's so intriguing about the bronx anyway?

even though corona park is a lot safer than the bronx, i still wouldn't want to camp out there without there being security in site at all times.

lol the anger. There isn't nearly as much demand for US Open tickets as there are for Wimbledon or RG. Also Ashe is the largest tennis stadium in the world.
