Astoria, Queens

Friends take us out to dinner in Astoria, which is an area in Queens. We get picked up by car and are driven to a Greek restaurant which is said to have good fish. On our arrival we are a bit disappointed about how basic the place looks like. While we are waiting for a table I have the opportunity to see big grilled fish on the guests’ plates. Yummi!
Our friends who have celebrated their marriage here order grilled calamari and sardines as appetizers and Peter’s fish (as I recall) as main course. I have the best food which I had in NYC so far.
After dinner we are taken to a riverside park in Queens. While we have a smoke we get a glimpse of the Manhattan Skyline in the dark. It looks great how the lights in the buildings make up an irregular pattern. I imagine that this pattern changes every day, as peoples’ lives variate (at least a little) from day to day.
We stand next to the beautiful Triboro Bridge which connects Queens, Manhattan and the Bronx.
