Sunset over Queens, 2014-03-01.
If you live in the Ditmars section of Astoria, you’re probably familiar with the work of Berch Augustine—whether you know it or not. Many of the local businesses have hired him at some time or other to paint their windows or walls. He’s quite prolific, and lately I’ve been snapping shots of his painting as I’ve run across it. This mural, done for 36th Street Animal Clinic just off Ditmars, had a warm glow to it just before sunset, which complimented the colors of the lettering. You can read more about Mr. Augustine on Nancy Ruhling’s “Astoria Characters” blog.
Let’s go to the movies at Jackson Heights Cinema in Jackson Heights. This small theater has $6 matinees and $6 movies on Wednesdays. Some of the movies are even subtitled in Spanish.
