Excellent, excellent thread! It's so nice and refreshing to see the breadth of the NYC area and environs. I used to work with a girl from Great Neck, it's nice to see a photo of it.

One thing I really hate about this website is salubrious photothreads like this that make me whimsically make multiple changes to flight schedules.

God Bless NY. God Bless Newark Airport.

wow, major tour.

Same shot from the 1970s

There is a restaurant nearby that serves authentic NM green chile, think it is called superfine. ¡Huevos Rancheros!



Is this the neighborhood with all the minivans?

I've lived in new York a decade and am a relentless explorer, and the list of places to discover still seems inexhaustible. I'm a jamais vu junky, and this wonderful metropolis has made me one blissful urban frontiersman.

Nygirl, you are my Dr. Livingstone

and yes @ Okayyou. Williamsburg is where you can find hipster's and the Hasidim. Most do not interact with non orthodox jews and those minivans act as taxi service for the neighborhood.

Very impressive! Some neighbourhoods are very nice and some unexpected, and most tourists will never see them as they mostly stick to central Manhattan.
