New York City isn't known for being the most outdoorsy of places. Our towering gray skyscrapers and 8,537,673 citizens make it difficult to find a Walden-esque retreat.
But there are places to go if you want a bit of nature. And maybe not nature in the traditional sense, but greenery nonetheless.
I've fallen for the world one sunrise at a time, but last week gave me my heart in a sunset.
Yeah I know. It's not some gorgeous ocean-side sunset crawl, or a mountainous beauty. But that up there is home. All of it. Rooftop graffiti and neon-orange construction cones and sneakers hung off telephone wires. The congested sidewalk and blaring bus horns and crowds of umbrellas poking my side.
It's my little corner of Queens, New York.
From guides to rants.
