Ditmars Blvd

View of the train tracks from the Ditmars Blvd. Station of the N and W yellow lines on Ditmars Blvd and 31st street looking south. Ditmars Boulveard is techinically part of Long Island City but actually part of Astoria even though it is also referred to as its own separea area called (what else?) Ditmars. Did that make any sense? I didn't think so. The borders of areas in Queens are very weird and we are in fact the only borough in NYC that refers to specific areas on our mailing addresses instead of the entire borough (i.e. Astoria, NY instead of Queens, NY) . Also, the Citi builidng can be seen in the background as the sun sets in the west. Finally, the arch shown is part of the Hell's Gate bridge, which crosses over the metro line and continues into the island on the east and through the East River on the west.

It was good to see this angle of the Hell's Gate and then to scroll down and see the whole thing in your earlier blog. Nicely captured atmospherics here.
