NYC travel

Grid Madness

The physical streets are nice grids, but the numbering in Queens is odd. The block south of me is the 400s, whereas mine has addresses like 17-11.

The City That Never Sleeps

Certainly up later than Boston. This residential neighborhood has Crown Chicken and Top Gourmet open at 12:30am, among other things.

Conservatory Scale

I looked up Central Park Conservatory, and found the Conservatory Garden, in NE Central Park. It turns out to just be a formal garden, the only one in the park. It seemed small -- and compared to Central Park, or any proper botanic garden, it is. But it has three fountains and is at least two minutes walk north-south, it would be a sizable city park by itself.
