Roosevelt in The Gardens

The new Ken Burns PBS documentary The Roosevelts has taken the country by storm, with more than 9 million viewers. One of the blog's readers, @EdJQuigley, tweeted me this cool photo from the documentary of Teddy Roosevelt during his visit to Forest Hills Gardens. The scene is in Part 3, about 25 minutes in. I believe he's overlooking Station Square, where the Long Island Railroad is.

Banter Outdoor Seating

I believe they're using new furniture outside since they reopened their outdoor seating section. Looks very nice...
