    Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge (Actually in Queens)

    by PA2AKgirl Written Dec 17, 2003

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mostly everything I'm going to mention is located in the south part of Bklyn and Queens anyway, so I am going to merge the information into one travel page
    So, the JBWR is the only wildlife refuge run by the National Park Service (the others are through Fish and Wildlife) and it's part of Gateway National Recreation Area. If I am considering Bklyn and Queens to be NYC's unlikely destinations, then a National Park in the city sure fits in to this category. The wildlife refuge is pretty much a nice expanse of open land, with trails and 2 ponds. It's located right on the Atlantic Flyway, and the variety of birds that come through there is incredible. It's well over 300 different kinds. There are programs given there, like in every National Park, as well as self guided trails with interpretive signs and brochures. Birders come out here everyday, parents with their children and it's amazing how few people that live in NY know about this place. I definitely recommend visiting, especially during spring migration

    Must Taste...Chocolate in DUMBO

    by TempNomad Updated Aug 1, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Jacques Torres Chocolate...oh my goodness! A lovely cafe, "home" made chocolate, and a grungy-artsy surrounding. It's a lovely nook in DUMBO...located between the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges. You can have lovely drinks, lovely snacks, and every sense will be on the verge of overstimulation.

    Open Monday through Saturday from 9-7.
