My World Tuesday




Photobucket

Photobucket

This is Malba, N.Y. It's located at the very northern end of Queens and is considered part of Whitestone, Queens, N.Y. I often find myself driving through this small area which is bordered on the north by the East River.

Typical houses in this part of the county are large Tudors. Heavy chimneys and decorative half-timbering give Tudor style houses a Medieval flavor. The Tudor style is sometimes called Medieval Revival.

Along the River, from which you can see the Whitestone Bridge, parts of College Point and Manhattan Island, there are a few decorative benches, one of which you see above. It's a lovely place to sit in the summertime.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL THE PARTICIPANTS AND THE MY WORLD TEAM!

Nice place to sit any time. With that kind of house and surroundings it must be a very well to do area.
Nice shots.

Beautiful house. Nice little area you can drive around and gawk at some beauty all over.

Ya know, the last time I was in NYC for any length of time at all, I stayed at the Capri Whitestone at the Bronx end of the Whitestone bridge. And (this'll give you an idea how long ago this was) while I was there, Berkowitz capped somebody at the Queens end of the bridge. Or so the story goes anyway.

Glad you guys got that taken care of...

As my dear friend Daryl from Manhattan would say, "Your hood is very photogenic!"

Happy new year. Benches overlooking rivers are always beckoning for us to stop and smell the roses, or in this case, the East River.

That house reminds me of Bavaria for some reason. I can almost see a little old lady sweeping her sidewalk or airing her featherbed. Quite an evocative photo, Mary. Maybe I got carried away by thinking about sitting on that bench in front of the river....

Great shots. I've always loved the look of Tudor homes.

Another beautiful part of New York. Most people think "Manhattan" when you say New York City but there is so much more. The house reminds me of the place in New Jersey where my daughter got married a few years ago.

It's a lovely section and I can see why you find yourself drawn there.
