A farm? In New York City? Mooooo…

There is indeed a farm in the city and, as with many of the city’s most awesome things, it’s located in Queens. Queens County Farm was built in 1697 and, according to its Web site, is the only working historical farm in the city (unless you count my landlords’ apartment when their extended family comes to visit, ha!). Admission is free, and you can take a tour of a historical farmhouse, feed some greedy barnyard animals your hand (or buy some feed first at the gift shop) and take a hayride.

Here is an example of the pupil dilation-inducing cuties you can expect to encounter during a couple hours at the farm:

Fuzzy little ducklings


All, in all, much better than the new Apple Store:

Apple and its prisoners

    haha catherine, i love your response to the apple store. too many people have been fawning over it. some cute ducklings are definitely way cooler to look at than a glass and underground structure.

    The ducklings are soooo much cuter! And I bet their battery doesn’t run out after a year, forcing you to go spend nearly a hundred dollars to get it replaced when you’d only spent $300 on them in the first place. Grrrr! I’m totally a member of the cult of Apple, but I haven’t drunk the Koolaid yet (or as my brother puts it, eaten the applesauce).
