I like them all. Everytime I pass by or visit one of these places, I find myself with a little smile on my face, and feel happy about being in Queens.

Windsor School, Wharton's Apothecary and the Old Farmhouse etc. deserve to be NYC Landmarks!

Wharton's Apothecary is a brand new building. That's what makes it so outstanding!

Old Astoria Village, perhaps one of the most stunning neighborhoods in all NY, with about as much of the original fabric as that other Village.

Pray for that farmhouse in Middle Village. It is up for sale. The farmhouse that used to be across the street from this on is now 4- 3 family "feders" style homes. I have been inside this house before the old owners moved. It is stunning, with original wood floors. Keep your fingers crossed.
