Lunchtime in the Hills

Just some stuff I noticed today during a nice walk around Forest Hills on this delightful Indian-Summerish day:

The empty space on 71st Continental, near Queens Blvd., is being filled by another optical store.

Some before and after tornado shots of the Queens County Savings Bank on Queens Blvd.

The Queens County Savings Bank on Queens Blvd. right after the tornado...

... and the Queens County Savings Bank today.

And the Jewish harvest holiday of Sukkot has busted out all over town!

Oh, and one other thing…. what is with the Fay Da Bakery, over near the T-Bone Diner? I walked in there and it was P- A – C – K – E – D !!!!! Is the place that good? Just what have I been missing all these years?

Dissed Again ?

Well, “The Bible” of New York City hip is out again with one of its neighborhood issues, and our little nabe has been left out of the mix. Well, at least we’ve gotten some occasional mentions over the past year.

Here’s the Time Out New York coverage I’m referring to: Why I love NYC — The best of each neighborhood: restaurants, bars, shops clubs and more.

The neighborhoods that are included in Queens are Sunnyside, Astoria, Long Island City and Jackson Heights.
