Malba, aka Manny's Malba
Join us for a ride from Eastern Queens to less ridden and lesser known areas of Queens---Beechurst, Whitestone/Malba, College Point. Ride highlights include Francis Lewis Park, Powells Cove Park, The Clinton (not Bill, DeWitt), Spa Castle, and MacNeil Park. We will do photo op stops at Lewis and MacNeil. There are beautiful waterfront views of the Long Island Sound and the East River as well as the Whitestone and Triboro Bridges! Malba has some knockout mansions to view as well.
Lunch location is Tony's Beechhurst Deli. Limited park outdoor seating and restrooms. All 3 clustered. On the loopback, we view a beautiful Zen Bhuddist temple and consider a Sunmerry nosh. How indulgent!
