In a Gmail draft last accessed on August 22, 2011, I saved a link to this article from April 26, 2010. Of all the walking tours I’ve ever heard about (and I’ve heard about a lot, though never partaken), this one excited me the most.
So how excited do you think I am now that I know Jackson Heights is about a 7 minute train ride from my current living quarters? Very.
Granted, that doesn’t guarantee I’ll ever take the $1 food walking tour (I was in the neighborhood yesterday for a Princess Bride potluck brunch, as, you know, one typically ventures to Jackson Heights to attend). But to realize it’s so close has reinvigorated my resolve to do it.
Food; cheap things; a day planned out in advance: these are all things that make me happy. If they make you happy, come join me on the tour. We might actually go on it one day. Possibly in December 2014.
