Queens Photos Du Jour: Sunnyside Shots

Filed under: Queens, Sunnyside 

My pilgrimage to Sunnyside for delish Mexican food earlier this week might have ended in failure*, but you know what they say about life: it isn’t about the destination it’s about how you get there. Courtesy of rush hour gridlock and some on the worst drivers this fine city has to offer I had plenty of time on my hands while riding the B24. After noticing the evening sun was bathing everything in sight in a gorgeous fiery hue I decided to while away the time by taking a few pictures. I have entitled this set of photographs Sunnyside Shots. Yes, I am aware some of these images do not hail from this neighborhood per se— but I like the sound of this title and I am sticking with it. Besides, its all about the pictures anyway. Enjoy!

I love the crazy reflections in this one.

Those of you who are in the know can attest that this building (which is located on Greenpoint Avenue) is one very ugly one indeed. Somehow I managed to make it look nice. No worries, I’ll run it on Fedders Friday soon enough!

I finally got around to taking a photograph of this Greek Orthodox Church (which I love) after getting off the bus.

*Sort of: we went to Arriba Arriba on Queens Boulevard. It was pretty tasty. Enough so I would go back.

Yet More Foodie Frustration: De Mole

Okay, I’ll admit it: I’m on my period. Earlier yesterday I had my monthly sweets craving thwarted. I did not complain— not much, anyway. But when the Mister gets off work early enough to make riding the B24 bus to Sunnyside (and into the dining bliss that is De Mole) feasible I get excited. VERY EXCITED.

Enough so that I even deem it tweetworthy. So you can imagine my disappointment when we hopped off the bus to discover this.

Shuttered. But like the disappointed spinach enchilada* craving wench I was (and am) I pressed my face up to the door and gawked. A worker inside met my gaze and pointed to his right (my left). Then I figured it out.

De Mole is not dead. It is expanding its dining area. On the one hand I’m happy to see they’re faring well (their vittles are wonderful). On the other I was really looking forward to enchiladas and flan last night. Seriously.

*And coconut flan. Theirs is the BEST. Hands down!

**If anyone in in the know about their re-opening let me know. I miss my De Mole!
