Brooklyn might have the “hip” factor, but Queens now has the “Qool” factor. Fresh Meadows native Fred Cantor is selling black baseball caps that read “Queens = Qool” on the front. The retired lawyer wants to make some profit, of course, but he is also hoping to improve the borough’s image and help a venerable local institution. He donates $2 from every $21.90 cap sale to the Queens Library Foundation. This entrepreneur might be familiar to some Queens enthusiasts because he co-wrote Arcadia Publishing’s Images of America: Fresh Meadows book in 2011. Check out the merchandise here.
