Steinway Creek, revisited

December 3rd, 2013

Steinway Creek is one of my favorite weird little spots I've found while walking around. I was in the Steinway/Astoria area today and just stopped by to take a quick look around, when I noticed three sheep standing atop the far bank of the creek! (You have to zoom in to see them.) There was also a chicken wandering around closer to the water. A guy who works nearby told me there's a vivero south of here and sometimes some of the animals escape and run off to this area by the creek, but they're always eventually caught and taken back to be slaughtered. This aerial view will give you a better sense of things. The vivero is on the north side of 20th Avenue by the soccer field; I took this photo by the southern end of the creek at 19th Avenue.
