APAD #NYC: An evening in Queens

Trivia: NYC is made up of 5 boroughs – Manhattan, Bronx, Staten Island, Brooklyn and Queens

So far, I have only been to Manhattan and Staten Island…and Queens

I got a chance to visit the latter when a friend Rachel (who will shortly be seen photobombing all my pics) invited me to Queens!

Her house in Queens - is kinda like a mix of the apartments in Manhattan and the bugalows in New Jersey

What started with an pedestrian exploration of the area and this park full of artsy exhibits…

..and finally we settled into this really cozy bar (supposed to be one of the oldest in the city)

The drink in the pic is some rare dark limited edition Czech beer...Meh
