Reposting this great news from the Queens Central blog’s forums:

“It took a bit of work, but Weichert Realty has arranged with Harvest Home Organization for a weekly Farmer’s Market to take place in our parking lot. There will be lots of fresh farm produce from local farms. Details are as follows:

101-15 Metropolitan Avenue (right off 71st Avenue)
Every Saturday (starting July 10th), 8am – 4pm

Please come show your support, by visiting the first farmer’s market on Saturday, July 10th. We’re hoping for a great turn out, so we can make this a permanent part of the Forest Hills community.”

Calm Before the Storm?

June 17, 2010 Leave a comment

We’re barely into summer here in Forest Hills, but I have noticed that the weather seems to be unusually calm for this time of year. Even a line of thunderstorms that looked impressive on the radars late last night (around 1 a.m.) seemed to peter out as it reached us. We got barely a wimper out of it.
This makes me wonder if our luck is about to run out; are we in for that long-awaited hurricane that they’ve been predicting for some 60 years now – you know, the one that will bulldoze through Long Island?
Forest Hills is in a good position geographically to withstand such a big storm given its high elevation and that we are not close to the water.
Could this be the summer we are tested?
