Author Steve Reichstein holds a slide presentation based on his book "Discovering Queens!" followed by a signing, at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 18, at the Queens Museum of Art, as part of the month-long celebration of the museum's permanent exhibit, Panorama of the City of New York.
Published in September 2000, "Discovering Queens!" identifies 28 residential areas in the borough, along with 82 photographs, that have cultural and recreational activities, unique architecture, and other attributes.
Reichstein, a Brooklyn-born Queens resident of 20 years who recently served as an assistant to the Brooklyn borough president, is the former deputy director of city planning in Pittsburgh. The author's book is based on 11 years of research and observation.
The slide presentation is free with museum admission, which is a suggested contribution of $5 general, $2.50 for seniors and students.
