I'm still pleasantly surprised when I come across an area of Queens that reminds me of my suburban upbringing. For example, the Babies R Us in College Point Queens is huge, clean, and organized, with tons of free parking outside--just like blessed suburbia!
Even on a Sunday afternoon, we were able to get in and out of the store in 20 minutes or so to pick up our crib (which had been pre-ordered from a BRU upstate). We tossed that huge box into the car (with the help of the store staff of course), picked up some Chinese takeout, and headed on home. How nice to not have to stand in long Manhattan lines or lug everything home on our backs!
Here's our beautiful Sorelle lifetime crib, which we have yet to build, and which was purchased on-sale for $275!
Now, if I open up the box and find out the crib is in any way damaged, I may be singing another tune! I'll keep you posted with pics soon, Queens Mamas.
