    I currently live in Queens and I can honestly tell you that I never want to hang out there, and most people feel that way. If you really feel there's something worthwild attending, please enlighten me.

    Bloomberg is quite short, I remember seeing him once as he was heading for the subway at city hall.

    It was nice walking on the upper deck of the bridge, where the cars usually are, and have a view in both directions. The pedestrian walkway is on the North side on the lower deck, so it's a treat to see the South view. I will post some pictures of that later.
