A little bit of urban nature: post-industrial wonder!
Feeling adventurous? Go paddling on the East River! When the weather is nice, the Long Island City Community Boathouse hosts free kayaking events here, launching from Socrates Sculpture Park.
Real nice place to sit and watch Manhattan at night. In the Morning watch the people try and fish. Sometimes a sailboat or two will anchor in this cove.
This was the center of the waterfront industry in Astoria
