From The Publisher



We have always thought of October as “Rocktober”—it seems like the perfect time to rock out, break out your fall gear, go out and about and enjoy the scenery or better yet, the Queens Scenery (pun intended). Enjoy getting out there and send us photos we can share with our readers, friends on Facebook, Twitter, our website QueensScene.com, etc.—Tony Barsamian
