So, we just happen to be closest to the Richmond Hill Library, on Lefferts and Hillside. It is actually not that bad. They have a good selection of new books and DVDs, I think even better than the North Forest Park location on Metropolitan. Plus they have free wireless and computers to use, which seem to always be in use whenever we stop by. They do not have a good selection of older books so research there is not optimal. I haven't been to the Kew Gardens Library on Queens Blvd - Anyone know if it is worth going over there?
The outside of Richmond Hill lib is pretty nice and clean. They have several park benches out front and have great landscaping circling it with a very nice rose garden. Its really the saving grace of the block as if it was not there it may be totally neglected.
I'm just wondering what is to come of the "Republican Club" building across the street on Lefferts. It looks like it was a nice building at one point and rehab is under way but will it seriously be a club for Republicans? I vote for a Thai restaurant and a green market instead.
