My pal Eddie lives in Long Island City, a mythic place for Manhattanites as why would one ever have need to go there?
Since I have been going there I have discovered it to be quite a place. There are restaurants and gourmet groceries and Silver Cup Studios, home of "30 Rock" and "Sex and the City."
The view from his apartment is above. He can see the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building and the United Nations! Not to mention the 59th Street Bridge to his right. It is bleedin' spectacular!
