NYC’s only corn maze is opening this weekend in Queens, for visits through the end of October.
The Amazing Maize Maze is an annual pre-Halloween event at the Queens County Farm Museum which is the oldest continuously operated farm in New York City, established in 1697 in what was then known as New Amsterdam.
It’s a three-acre puzzle of finding clues in the paths between corn stalks as high as an elephant’s eye (fellow fans of the Rogers and Hammerstein musical Oklahoma will recognize that phrase),
This year The Amazing Maize Maze celebrates Andy Warhol’s pop art.
The adventure begins with a Stalk Talk to prepare you for the challenge of finding clues, solving puzzles, and making your way to Victory Bridge, where the prize is a life-size Warhol cow sculpture, It’s one of a collection of cow sculptures by various artists placed around town these days.
