Jackson Heights: on the verge of chic
The main drag is dominated by the overhead tracks of what becomes the subway in Manhattan.
The neighborhood is lively and colorful. Just two blocks to the left or right of the shopping district are neat and spacious brick row houses. We peered into alluring and frightening shops.
We paused before a door into which had been drilled a set of glory holes for a family of very tall, like-minded and slim-hipped quintuplets.
We passed food that was either all too familiar or quite mysterious.
C and BJ were entertained.
Via the subway, Jackson Heights is just twelve minutes from midtown Manhattan. Watch this neighborhood pop. The proto-gays have already begun to arrive.
