I finally managed to cross a few more things off my borough bucket list by forcing the boys to join me on a field trip to Queens this spring. First stop, the Welling Court murals in Astoria (a street art project in a somewhat dodgy neighborhood). The boys were willing but perhaps not overly impressed.
Next stop, Socrates Sculpture Park. Whoever does their marketing deserves a huge raise because that park is a D-U-D. We did not linger long.
Final stop - Gantry Plaza State Park in LIC. The park is built on an industrial relic of NYC of yore, when gantries were constructed in LIC to load and unload rail car floats that operated via Long Island Rail Road tracks. The gantries were shut down years ago, but the main structures remain, along with a lovely waterfront park The perfect place to end our borough explorations for the day.
