On Trip to Queens, Road-Testing a Plan for Conventions

There they were, two strangers in a Subaru, puzzling over a GPS device as they idled on a street corner in South Ozone Park, Queens, in the shadow of the Aqueduct racetrack. To think, just an hour ago they had been in Manhattan, taking in lingerie and fashion expositions.  Read More: NY Times

Holy Cross HS beats Bishop Loughlin HS, 60-57, to win CHSAA Brooklyn/Queens Diocesan title
