Globetrotter Girls – The Living Pyramid in Queens, New York

Living Pyramid - Queens - Globetrotter Girls

After exploring more of the Bronx last summer, I thought that it was time to focus more on Queens this year, where I admittedly spend only very little time – even though there is so much to do and see in Queens… it is the largest one of New York’s five boroughs after all.

My favorite part of Queens is Astoria, a traditionally Greek neighborhood, but like so many parts of Brooklyn and Queens increasingly gentrified with a growing number of cool bars and hipster coffee shops. When I heard that the Metropolitan Opera Summer Recitals series would stop at the Socrates Sculpture Park in Astoria this year, I had the perfect excuse to return to this little park to which I was introduced last year (it’s likely to be included in the next edition of my Five things to discover in New York that most tourists (and locals) never do series) and which is a highly underrated free thing to do in New York – of course ideally combined with some authentic Greek food or drinks in one of Astoria’s many bars, or simply watching the sunset over the Manhattan skyline right in the park or nearby Rainey Park, which also sits right on the East River.
