Long walks

The weather has been absolutely amazing this holiday weekend -- sunny and in the seventies. So we've spent the past two days wandering around Queens, through abandoned streets in Long Island City and the quaint tree-lined lanes of Sunnyside Gardens. (Above, a picture of water towers in the distance, as seen from the overpass bridging Sunnyside Yards.)

We sampled Hungarian/Transylvanian pastries at Chimney Cake NYC (get the one rolled in crushed walnut!); picked up a few books at Seaburn, which is having a great sale; and marveled at the cutest tiny little dog, kitted out in a gray hoodie and walking on his hind legs, on Skillman Avenue. A great weekend, and on Thursday, we're off to Singapore for a bit. Onward!
