  • The best place in Sunny Side Queens: P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center

    P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center

    22-25 Jackson Ave
    1 Contemporary Art Center (MoMA PS1), 22-25 Jackson Ave, ☎ +1 718 784-2084. Th-M noon-6PM. Suggested admission $10 adults, $5 students and seniors. Supported by the Museum of Modern Art, this innovative (and cheap) contemporary art museum is in a former public school building. The conversion left most of the original features of the school - the large ex-classrooms are perfect for installations - and the bathrooms are a blast from the past. P.S.1 is a few blocks south on Jackson Avenue from the Citibank tower; the entrance is a concrete slab (how fitting) which occludes view of the school itself. P.S.1 also has a nice cafe and outdoor seats where every able-bodied New Yorker can enjoy a smoke.

  • Newtown Creek Sewage Treatment Plant

    Newtown Creek Sewage Treatment Plant

    Greenpoint Ave and Provost St
    Newtown Creek is a 3.5 mi estuary that forms part of the border between the boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens, in New York City, New York, United States. It derives its name from New Town, which was the name for the Dutch and British settlement in what is now Elmhurst, Queens. Channelization made it one of the most heavily used bodies of water in the Port of New York and New Jersey and thus one of the most polluted industrial sites in America, containing years of discarded toxins, an estimated 30 million US gallons of spilled oil, and raw sewage from New York City’s sewer system. Newtown Creek was proposed as a potential Superfund site in September 2009, and received that designation on September 27, 2010.

  • Beer Garden at Studio Square

    35-33 36th Street
    A huge and festive, very modern outdoor space that’s the apotheosis of a traditional Bohemian beer hall, but is every bit as much fun with indoor and outdoor spaces, dozens of microbrews on tap and a range of cuisines on offer from barbecue to sushi. Virtually impossible not to enjoy yourself here.
