We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
You guessed right. Roosevelt Ave and Northern Blvd in Flushing, Queens, NYC. Miles of Korean, and just a little Chinese. Lots of Americans live there whose lives I could not understand. Plenty of Korean Gospel Churches. Manhattan is just one bit of New York City. You could spend a lifetime discovering this city.
We took the back roads to the tennis center this morning.
Then you're under the El, approaching the brand-new Shea Stadium which some people insist on calling Citi Field. The giant Flushing Meadow Park, the site of the 1939 and 1964 World's Fairs and the wonderful US Tennis Center is just a stone's throw away from Shea.
I grew up there in the 50's and 60's when it was a mostly working class Irish/Italian Catholic and Jewish neignorhood. Typical of much of New York, a new wave of immigration changes a neighborhood. I must say however that the Main Street area is much dirtier now.
