Corner of Astoria still exists!

It’s been one week since you looked at me I started this blog on my phone while eating a sandwich in a Subway restaurant on 7th Avenue. I have posted every day. (Sometimes after midnight though). Saturday, I covered the 44th Drive rezoning protest in Hunters Point. I see little other post-coverage of that other than on NY1. And this was not a bad alternative for getting that news (IMHO).

A few notes:

  • It’s hard to choose a seat at the new/reopened Love Cafe on Steinway Street. I tried popular Kinship Coffee but it was too crowded. Next door at Love, hardly anyone was there. But there are so many types of spots to sit it took a while to choose. Wait, is this a metaphor for the world?


  • I saw no reports of tossed blood at the St. Pat’s parade in Sunnyside.
  • One Queens Plaza has topped out.
  • Some inspiration from the runners at Astoria Park.
  • Cops are looking for people who stole a snow plow in Woodside.
  • Note to self: go to Flor de Azale Cafe’s open mics! (Next time.)
  • I looked at this shark tweet for a long time trying to understand it. Then, I noticed who retweeted it. GianarisSharkretweet
  • Scrolling through State Sen. Michael Gianaris’ Twitter feed, I noticed he introduced a bill to fight puppy mills by only allowing pet stores to get dogs and cats from shelters or rescues. Normal breeders would still be able to sell to prospective pet owners directly.
