"You know, it seems to me, it’s true that the park has always been a kind of dumping ground for anything that couldn’t find a home anywhere else," he said. "But on the other hand, it is that kind of place. And because it’s never had a very clearly defined landscape and because there’s so much still left over from the World’s Fair, it’s almost appropriate that it should receive these kinds of uses."

"We are lucky in Astoria. There are so many places to eat where the food is both inexpensive and absolutely delicious. Generally, if you are a food lover on a budget, I would suggest checking out places that do a thriving takeout and delivery (versus sit-down) business. In Astoria, specifically, these are places like BZ Grill, Duzan, Pão de Queijo, and so many others. I would also suggest checking out any stands that are sizzling by the side of the road. One of my favorite places to eat in Astoria is King of Falafel and Shawarma, a wildly popular, incredibly affordable food cart that makes the best chicken and rice I have ever tasted."

Suzanne Yacka AKA @tastoriaqueens in the VV, repping some of my favorite places just up the street. BZ, Pão, and FALAFEL KING are amazing, cheap, and fast. I haven’t tried Duzan, but I’ll have to now. (via bmichael)

When he mentioned record labels like Sony Red and Universal Subsidiaries, he pointed at the ground as if at their corpses.
