Cultural mash-up in Astoria

Bagpipers from Spain were performing on 41st and Broadway yesterday afternoon. They then proceeded into Circulo Español to perform to a sparse audience in the second floor hall. It was a euphorically deafening sound.

Sunnyside is Popping tonight, with bars like PJ Horgans, Oyster Bar, Molly Blooms, Gaslight, Maggie Mae’s, McGuinness, and Bliss Street - amongst others. But here’s some offerings from the comprehensive Irish market, Butcher Block, over on 41st. Today they had a special offering: small baggie of genuine shamrock’s from Ireland for $7.99. That may seem pricy for sprouts, but whatever - Woodside’s got nothing on this.

Flushing summer 2010 - Corner of Roosevelt Ave. and Main St. If you’ve ever been to the busy part of Flushing, you’ve been on this corner. There seems to be a lot of people out on that day but it’s actually pretty light because it was a weekday. The weekends are packed.
