Greetings! If you’ve just stumbled across our new(ish) site via this weekend’s New York Times article, then welcome. Please take some time to browse our archives. Some of our most frequently blogged topics include real estate development, architecture, and Listings of the Day. We also cover new restaurant and store openings and have three freelance writers blogging about Queens history and its less-known nooks and crannies. Most of all, we want our readers to be our eyes and ears on the streets. So if you pass a new building going up or a storefront being renovated, we will be forever grateful if you would snap a photo on your phone and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Similarly, we appreciate your comments underneath the blog posts themselves. And, in the meantime, you can follow us on Twitter at https://twitter.com/BrownstonerQNS.
