Neighborhood Chat / Re: A Tree in Jackson Heights
« Last post by jeanette on Yesterday at 09:02:47 PM »
The linden trees on 88th and 89th have bloomed. There are four on 88th a bit south of 35th Avenue (three are on the east side of the street), and one on 89th, also a bit south of 35th.

Worth a stroll.

An interesting aside...a few years ago I was caught in stormy weather, and when I passed under the lindens I stepped on a branch and was stung by a wasp. So beware, they are truly alive.

Neighborhood Chat / Re: Crowley/Ocasio-Cortez Debate on NY1

I've just had a light bulb moment....

How many people would vote for Crowley if he resigned as Chair of Queens Democratic Party effective immediately?
It's on the top 5 reasons most have such an ugly feeling about him.

I still wouldn't. After so many years in office, he doesn't have much to show his local constituents. I really think we can do better.

« Last post by shazza09 on Yesterday at 04:39:22 PM »
Do you have a child between 2 and 7 who would love to enjoy learning a new language?
Mandarin classes for children are starting in Jackson Heights on Saturday, June 30th from 10-11:15am.
Games, songs, movement and craft activities are all used to help young children learn to speak, read, and write Chinese. No prior knowledge necessary.
It's pay as you go ($15 per class for one child and $22 for 2+ children).
Please message me with the age of your child, if interested.
Spaces are limited to 8 children.
Thank you,
Shaz

Dear neighbors,

Drop off any used books and pickup some here at our wine shop.

Tonight's line up, we have Rosé, Albariño, Mencia and Tempranillo. Better yet, golden nose

Neighborhood Chat / Re: Gantry Park in LIC

Technically, Gantry is a State park, not national. But yeah, they’re adjacent to one another. I heard that apparently they had postponed the ribbon cutting because someone forgot the scissors or some nonsense. Hahaha. In either case, glad to see that the new phase has opened.

Oops, yes, I knew that. Typo.  :)

Hunters Point South Park phase 2 is now open. This is a NYC park, separate from Gantry, which is a US park. However, they seem to connect at Center Blvd.

Monthly costs are almost $1,000... not exactly low for a 2 bedroom.

Restaurants & Food / Re: Laly's Restaurant in former McDonald's on Roosevelt
« Last post by missmarty on Yesterday at 01:01:54 AM »
We recently saw a sign at Juquilla that said, solicita una cocinero- con experiencia con la comida mexicano.

Anyway- there is a new space for Brooklyn Bagel- it's big and close to train. Roosevelt/ 83/84.

I'll write them too!

Wow--I looked at that sale from a year ago, and I am still amazed they are getting those prices. That one had just one bath, the second bedroom looks minuscule, and the building has a view of another complex's garden, not its own garden. Yes, the carrying costs are pretty low--but ours are lower, in a coop, and we have two bathrooms, a larger second bedroom than that apartment, and in a complex with its own block-long garden. I just don't get it.
