1. A shot of the historic section of Forest Hills, Queens, while traveling to Long Island on the railroad. Fun fact: Did you know the Forest Hills railroad station is one of the oldest in the city? 1906. President Teddy Roosevelt delivered a speech there in 1917.
2. I’ve spent the past two semesters working on a collaborative data project. The team leader bakes!
3. Taken during a ferry ride from lower Manhattan to Staten Island on my way to an assignment.
