DULIE– Down under the Long Island Expressway

DURFKO- Down under the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge Onramp
DUTBO–  Down under the Triborough Bridge Onramp

Sorry for the “clip show” today, I’m running a little late on my schedule, and the next “Astoria to Calvary” photowalk installment will be ready tomorrow.

also: Click here for a fascinating experience one pedestrian had down by Gantry Plaza Park. This is precisely the sort of thing that I’m constantly droning on about…

Also, something I found while doing research on Northern Blvd.- or how Robert Moses almost did to western Queens what he did to the South Bronx.
