I spent half a weekend afternoon in Queens eating, drinking (coffee) and snapping pics along the way. I think I have a great 2 stop trip in the borough the next time you have friends and family in town.
Another weekend and another opportunity to escape the city for a few hours. If you don’t have a car (which is most of us) Metro North makes these trips very accessible.
If you look at a Google Map of the Hudson River there are a lot of towns and historic points of interest you should make the time to visit.
I found these guys adorning an apartment building on New York’s Upper West Side. They are fairly low on the building (about 12 feet off the ground) and I really liked their expressions.
