I visited Rego Park, Queens, New York, recently, to meet fellow crafter Fern Ellen Cohen ( I LOVE Rego Park. Not sure that I'm ready to move there but it's a really nice, interesting place to spend an hour or two or three. There are beautiful places to live there, adorable little houses with lovely gardens and a small-scale 1950s tower-in-park development called Park City that is meticulously maintained and has all its original details, lobbies and modernistic entrances intact. There are amazing Russian groceries, an Uzbek pastry shop, Russian/Uzbek restaurants. Unfortunately many of the charming 1920s-30s houses have been altered and have lost some of their original details but many are still in original condition.
