Queens County Farm adds Maze by Moonlight date for the 13th

Oct. 13, 2023 By Iryna Shkurhan

To make up for a rain cancellation, the city’s only corn maze at Queens County Farm in Floral Park is adding an extra date to their limited Maze by Moonlight lineup. 

If walking through a corn maze at night with just a flashlight wasn’t spooky enough, the newly added slot happens to fall on Friday the 13th. 

For the courageous night owls who want to take their spooky season to the next level, you can have the chance to complete the 43-acre maze beneath the starry night sky. It adds an extra level of challenge, and fun, to the experience.

The Amazing Maize Maze can also be completed during the daytime if you’re less spookily inclined every weekend until Oct. 28.

If you can’t make this limited time event tonight, it is also scheduled for Oct. 14, Oct. 21 and Oct. 27. Two time slots are available: 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. 

Tickets can be purchased online for $18, and $14 for those ages 4-11.

For the second time in four months, FDNY fire inspectors averted a potential catastrophe in East Elmhurst after finding stockpiles of illegally stored propane tanks in the residential neighborhood.

Fire inspectors from the Special Investigation Unit received a complaint of illegal occupancy at a home just south of LaGuardia Airport at 23-57 89th St. They discovered 68 propane cylinders, which they seized along with five food trucks and a box truck parked on the property last week. The inspectors also found illegal single-room-occupancy in the home’s cellar.
