Description:
The Singer Bowl is a stadium that formerly stood in Flushing Meadows–Corona Park, in the New York City borough of Queens. The stadium was built for events during the 1964 World's Fair, also hosting various Olympic trials and concerts over the years.

On friday, August 2nd, 1968 the Singer bowl hosted a concert headlined by The Doors with The Who as the opening act.

In the early 1970s, though, the United States Tennis Association was looking for a new place to host the U.S. Open as relations with the West Side Tennis Club in Forest Hills, which had hosted the tournament, were breaking down. The USTA was initially unable to find a sufficient site, but the association's incoming president, W.E. Hester saw the old Singer Bowl from the window of an airplane flying into LaGuardia Airport. The old, long rectangular stadium was heavily renovated and divided into two adjacent stadia, becoming Louis Armstrong Stadium and the adjacent grandstand.

Boxing

In the summer of 1972 professional boxing was held at the Singer Bowl. Some of the fighters who boxed at the Singer Bowl were former Heavyweight Champion Floyd Patterson and future world champions Vito Antuofermo and Saoul Mamby. Other boxers of note that boxed at the Singer Bowl in 1972 were Edwin Viruet, John Clohessy, Roy Edmonds, Eduardo Santiago and others.
