I was meandering around the section of Flushing in which the streets are named for plants in alphabetical order from A to R. On Quince Avenue I found this compelling small cottage with a French Second-Empire style mansard roof. This is likely a recent renovation, but unusually for Queens (and I hate to sound condescending about it) it was very tastefully rendered.

    Amen. Most of the new stuff going up in the metro New York area is hideous. And why those chrome fences that look like headboards?

    I lived a block away from that house when I was a kid. Except for new paint colors, that’s the way it looked in 1949.
