MPOTD: Summer Home

MPOTD: Summer Home

by Darren Meenan September 24, 2017 0 Comments

I'm always looking for new angles of our summer home, and I shot this back in January from the Delta drop off zone at LGA. Just happened to have my camera on me when the sun was coming up. Good timing. 

A lot of people don't realize how close the ballpark is to the World's Fair Marina. The dock originally had 800 slips in the ‘60s during the World's Fair, and is now down to about 250. The names are slipping my mind, but a player or two used to sleep on boats there during homestands back in the day. 

Hopefully whenever Willets Points gets her facelift, the marina is more of a destination spot. Would be cool to hang near the water before heading to a game. For now, we're stuck with the chop shops and potholes.
