this photo was taken a few weeks ago, when the weather was beautiful and it really felt like spring was here.
this weather i wish for with all my heart.
i was walking around Forest Hills, a neighborhood in my burough of Queens. at the end of R line, which i take to work everyday [towards Manhattan of course]. it has quite the strip of shopping. a range of stores, from Barnes and Noble Booksellers, to Banana Republic, to Diesel, to the smaller boutiques selling one-of-a-kind items.
also a stop on the LIRR [Long Island Rail Road]. the Tudor-style architecture drew me in. these photos were all taken within steps of the train station. you will notice the lamp posts, the beautiful brick and terra cotta rooftops.
this clocktower is under some renovation. apparently. i like to think it was some sort of art statement, wrapping it in this mesh fabric.
walking under the bridge where the train passes over. you can tell it had been cold. the icicles were all melting.
i leave you with this cobble stone street.
