The vendors at the Queens County Market

Should be a great afternoon!
The Queens High Line faces opposition from the Woodhaven Residents’ Block Association
On September 29, a forum was held by the Woodhaven Residents’ Block Association regarding the Queens High Line. Two options were presented – turn the abandoned rail line into a park, or restart it as a train line. Both options were not acceptable to the Association, with privacy and noise issues being first in their minds. The WRBA does concur that that condition of the line is “deplorable” and would like the City to clean it up.

Astoria, Queens is an incredible and underrated city to live in
Buzzfeed put together a list of “incredible and underrated cities to live in” and Astoria made the cut. Though we wonder if they are mixing up Astoria with Queens in general. Here’s the blurb:
Although Queens is technically a part of NYC, with a population of 2.3 million, it’s virtually a city in itself. Queens is known for its incredible diversity, as more than 170 languages are spoken in the borough. With a ton of eclectic cuisine, sports stadiums, an awesome beer garden, a rich jazz heritage and a bustling night life, what more could you ask for?
