Grew up in Queens. It has a bunch of Orthodox folks, by the way.  :angel:

And to begin the thread, let us talk about the culinary beauties of my City

From beef on weck, to loganberry, to spaghetti parm, pizza, Mighty Taco, and a vast variety of other delights.


(yes I know, chicken wings too but I like my list without it as well because diversity)

Ahhh Buffalo . . . lived there for ten years as a kid growing up. I do remember a fast food place called The Red Barn that was a favorite of mine to go to.  I doubt if it is around anymore.  While I do like chicken wings, I'd rather go for a beef on weck.

Quote from: Fr Alexander Schmemann
The Gospel is quite clear: both saints and sinners love God. "Religious" people do not love him, and whenever they can, they crucify him.

Of course, OC.net is not reflective of the Church, but is rather a surreal bubble. I have visited a lot of different parishes around the world and have listened to many hours of AFR...

In addition, wine from the Finger Lakes is fantastic.

As a kid I lived in a suburb of Syracuse. It was great. I learned to love hockey in the upstate. There was a river nearby where I used to catch frogs and hit golf balls. My family attended a Mormon church next to a Jewish cemetery. When we moved out west I thought it was so strange that nobody was Jewish.
