Astoria: Coffee Girl

They were closed for a winter break last year (actually: beginning of 2014). This year I got in: twice. The second morning I had it all to myself. The girl behind the Xmas tree is apparently one of the last surviving "coffee girls" (according to the plaque, she retired in 1960). Great place to have coffee and read. Great place to watch the sleeping (sometimes waking) ships.
