Falling in love with Astoria Park
...here I was in Queens, standing on a soft grassy rise gazing out across the deep treacherous waters of Hell Gate channel at the glorious midtown skyline of Manhattan, the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building jabbing the blue sky with gleaming silver spires, the hood ornaments of a driven city. A city of people and bridges and ideas and schools and commerce and history. A city of big endless dreams.
I want to leave all this, travel hours north, to watch leaves turn?
Leaf me be, it's fall in Astoria Park
