Movies, books, and TV shows in Queens – how many have you seen?
A while back we wrote an article on the books set in Queens, and we’ve followed up with a list of movies and TV shows set in Queens. It’s pretty cool to see parts of Queens in these moving pictures. So check out our list and let us know if we’ve forgotten your favorite film or TV show. We’re always interested in learning more!
LIC Living is here
We Heart Astoria has posted about LIC Living, a new shopping spot in LIC at 5-35 51st Ave. They sell home decor, candles, women’s accessories, clothing, and kids stuff. It was started by Jillian Tangen and Rebekah Witzke, local LIC friends who shared a common vision when it came to what a boutique shop should be. They noticed there weren’t many shopping options in the neighborhood, so they opened up their own shop. It sounds like a fab place and we look forward to checking it out!
Getcher German grub at Gottscheer
Serious Eats recently visited Gottscheer Hall in Ridgewood – for Date Night, no less – and found an “irony free zone” and lots of delicious sausages (krainerwurst is our favorite) with classic accompaniments (spaetzle, sauerkraut). And beer. Glad to see them have some fun and enjoy one of Ridgewood’s oldest establishments.
Who’s reachin’ out to capture a moment? Everyone knows it’s Wendy
Wendy, the giant alien looking star structure that was living in the courtyard of MOMA PS 1 for Warm Up this past summer, made it onto the Best Buildings 2012 list by Architizer. Architizer is a database of architecture online, and they have a blog, where the list was published. There are 12 buildings total on the list with two others from the US, one from Australia, and the rest from Europe and Asia. As for the others on the list, we think Gardens by the Bay in Singapore is pretty spectuacular.
“Edible” sushi in Astoria – Chowhounds share their faves and what to forgo
Over on Chowhound there is a discussion on where to get “edible” sushi in Astoria. Not surprisingly, Linn has devoted fans – and we can attest to how delicious the sushi is – as does Watawa, which would probably win the People’s Choice Award of sushi (whereas Linn would win the Academy Award – it’s extremely sophisticated and of very high quality). We’ll let you read the list for the ones that are not recommended.
