The cache is hidden in Astoria Park. The coordanates will lead you directly to GZ. This cache brings you close to
Triboro Bridge which connects the Boros of Queens, The Bronx and Manhattan through a complex of 3 separate bridges.
After the first year of operation in 1937, approximately 30,000 vehicles per day passed through the Triborough Bridge.
Can you guess how many years it took to complete this magnificent architecture? And which month it was inaugurated?
On November 19, 2008, and pursuant to a request made by the Kennedy family, the Triborough Bridge was officially
renamed after Robert F. Kennedy, who served as a senator for New York.

Skaters from around the city have been flocking to the new skate park in Astoria Park that officially opened on October 2010.
A brand new 21,500-square-foot skate park, a true oasis for skateboarders of all levels. The park features multiple levels,
stairs with rails, banks, obstacles and ledges. The park was inspired by Athens Square Park visitors who were sick and tired of kids
flouting the rules about skating and rollerblading.
The park is open all year around allowing one to experience the changing of all four seasons.
It is such a clean and well maintained park that it is hard to find a nice hiding spot, but this cache found a nice round place to hide.
Although widely known for its beautiful pool, the oldest and largest in the city, Astoria Park offers more than aquatic pleasures.

Cache is a small tube 3'tallX1.3/8' round container with the usual SWAG.
Summer time brings a lot of muggles to these areas. Better time to GC before 11 am and after 8pm.
Nice tracks to run and majestic view of the bridge tower.
Metrocard for FTF.
Congrats to buttaskotch FTF !!!
