I was visiting a friend in Astoria yesterday and I absolutely love the variety of storefront windows you can see as you walk the streets.

Many people who don’t live in NYC are surprised that there are beaches here and that some are even accessible by subway for the fare of USD 2.50 one-way. Today was my third time on Beach 67 in the Rockaways, Queens. There are a bunch of beaches in the Rockaways but I like Beach 67 because you don’t have to change from the A train to the Shuttle; it is quiet; it is a 5 min walk from the subway to the beach; and there is a pretty decent Thai spot right by the station for lunch and a lovely clean bathroom. There is no swimming but then again, why would you want to??? The water is freezing and not very clean looking (or smelling).
