Where the Jalfrezi Meets the Jollibee

I took these photos from the 7 train as it passed over the BQE between the 74th and 69th street stations--one on the way into Manhattan, the other on the way back to Queens. On the west side of the BQE is a small Philippine neighborhood, where there was much excitement when the fast-food restaurant Jollibee (see below) opened in Woodside a couple years. On the east is the famous Indian-Pakistani-Bangladeshi mecca (sic) of Jackson Heights. The BQE divides as it connects. Fortunately it's just a two-minute walk between worlds on Roosevelt Ave.
