Walks in New York and elsewhere

My comments on buildings, shops, restaurants that catch my eye as I wander around New York City and other places.

Next walks

I've completed the photography for the next walk, which will take us out of Manhattan, to the borough of Queens, specifically, Long Island City and Ravenswood, along the length of Vernon Boulevard. Long Island City is one of those NYC neighborhoods that have been the next hot place for (in this case) about 30 years. It finally seems to be happening, although much of the traditional character remains. If New York had succeeded in its recent bid to host the Olympics, this neighborhood would have been the site of the Olympic Village. We'll be staying on the main drag, Vernon Boulevard, with just one or two detours, and, of course, the tantalizing views of the Manhattan skyline in the background.

After Vernon Boulevard, back to Manhattan, to fabled 125th Street, where there have also been big changes in the past few years.
