Best If That's What You're Into

Saturday. It was freezing. Mormons from Manhattan, Los Angeles, Long Island, Brooklyn and Queens convened in Queens for an adventure. The adventure entailed walking through Flushing Meadows Park, visiting the Unisphere, going to the Queens Museum of Art, and then having salmon at Helen's house. It was freezing.

Lots of feral kitties at the park.


The Unisphere. Don't tell me you don't recognize it.

Oh, wait, hold on a second...

There aren't any pictures of the Queens Art Museum because pictures aren't allowed there. But the most important thing about the Queens Art Museum is that it is the home to lots of stuff related to the New York World's Fair, particularly the very fun and interesting "Panorama of the City of New York" which totally makes the freezing trip out to Flushing Meadows worth it.

Also of note: behold, the demolishing of Shea Stadium.

Collin and Adam joined us for the supper portion of the evening. I had to split early to find a way back to the city (there was no 7 Train service to Manhattan last weekend...that made stuff tricky) and back to the UWS (no uptown trains were stopping at 96th street that weekend...neat) to grab my computer for the big party in Little Italy that night. Don't worry, it only took me a little over 2 hours.
