My Childhood in Bayside (vs. What's There Now)

I am leading a walk through old Bayside where I lived from 1943-1958. Most of the personal landmarks of my early life have vanished but there are threads of continuity and many anecdotes. Several sites have been designated as NYC landmarks: All Saints Episcopal Church, the Lawrence family graveyard and the Cobblestone house. When silent films were made in Queens, Bayside was home to many stars. Many brunch possibilities are in the area. Logistics for the tour link to the arrival of a reduced weekend fare (Buy a “Cityfare” ticket for $4.25.) LIRR train (leaves Penn Station at 10:19 AM with stops in Woodside and Flushing) arrives in Bayside at 10:47 AM. Fee $20 collected at the start of the tour.>Meet in front of the Post Office on the south side of the LIRR station on 42 Ave, just west of Bell Blvd. By bus: Q13 from Flushing to 42 Ave. Street parking available.
