Springtime in New York City - Astoria

Riding the East River Ferry is the scenic way of escaping my New York City neighborhood that’s mostly devoid of nature. The other day I took the relatively new route to Astoria, Queens where I found an abundance of showy blooms (and coffee shops, such as the adorable and yummy Chateau Le Woof that appeals to pets and their humans). 

The ferry is a delight: It’s scenic, inexpensive and efficient. Myriad routes criss-cross the East River, and every week or so I’ll be exploring green spaces and coffee shops in a different neighborhood.
