Queens is actually a pretty fun place to visit if you so choose. I'm gonna keep this nice and short. I'm sure some of you A to Zers can understand.
Shopping: Taking the M or the R to Steinway St will get you to some great and cheap little stores. I found a shoe store there where most shoes are under $20 and they're stacked all over the place.
Eating: One of the best pizzerias (that I forgot to mention in my pizza post) is Nick's Pizza down at 108-26 Ascan Ave in Forest Hills (a Queens neighborhood).
Relaxing and/or gaining a little culture: Flushing Meadows Park is where it's at! It's really big and, like I've mentioned before, contains the Unisphere at the site of the old World's Fair as well as the Queens Museum of Art.
This was taken almost 3 years ago (I can't believe it's been 3 years!) when we first visited the park after we moved her (we live within walking distance). As you can see, I'm really awesome.
