A humble narrator is taking this last week of summer off from narrating humbly, so single shots from past adventures are on offer. I’m out and about all week, if my plans work out, and will be back with fresh views of a City that doth not sleep after Labor Day.

Aviation High School is found in Sunnyside/Long Island City along Queens Blvd. As the name would imply, the school was originally vocational in concept and was meant to supply LaGuardia and Idlewild/Kennedy Airports with workers. They still teach aviation mechanics there, and have several surplus aircraft on hand.

Note: I’m writing this and several of the posts you’re going to see for the next week at the beginning of the week of Monday, August 31st. My plan is to continue doing my solo photo walks around LIC and the Newtown Creek in the dead of night as long as that’s feasible. If you continue to see regular updates here, that means everything is kosher as far as health and well being. If the blog stops updating, it means that things have gone badly for a humble narrator.
