Foodtown seems like the only place to go. I hope the deli in the Bruson will get a good selection when they get their license.

Associated Supermarket on 90th Street is now Key Food. Looks much the same so far!

Hi noob, I think the board president has started something - I remember getting an email about it but I didn't pay close attention. I'll see if I can find it for you.

Thanks! Please PM me the info. Much appreciated.

According to the article, a rep from Con Edison says that the construction work is not connected to the fire.
I find that really hard to believe. Especially since Coned negligently cut a gas main two weeks ago on that same block and hundreds of residents are going to be without cooking gas or gas dryers for 5 months on 85th st. These are the same apartments that have no electricity today due to this man hole fire. I think coned is just trying to get out of their responsibility and not have to pay for damages. Just my theory of course.

Restaurants & Food / Beer run

Where do most people go to buy beer? Not the typical big brand. All the supermarkets and bodegas here all sell the similar stuff.

I usually go to Foodtown, but the selection is going down (at least those that I usually get is no longer available).

Restaurants & Food / Mexican string cheese (Oaxaca cheese)

Anyone know where in our neighborhood to get Mexican string cheese (Oaxaca cheese), most I found in the supermarket only sell those fresh white cheese, they just crumble into small piece instead.

Did anyone else hear an incredibly loud banging and dragging sound this morning, starting before 5am and lasting nearly an hour? I think it was related to this construction (around 85th St & 35th Ave). Heard at least a few people yelling things out the window in response.

There was a manhole fire (according to the NYPD & FD on scene at around 6:30), perhaps linked to the construction, so not sure if the early sound had anything to do with that, but I made a 311 complaint anyway. Apparently some people lost power, too.

Here's some info on the explosion from CBS News:

Manhole Explodes In Jackson Heights, Queens

According to the article, a rep from Con Edison says that the construction work is not connected to the fire.

Reading Gothamist in the foreseeable future?

WNYC.org:

WNYC, Two Other Public Radio Stations Acquire Gothamist and Sister Sites

In a deal largely funded by two anonymous donors, WNYC is acquiring the news site Gothamist, including its archives, domain name and social media assets. The move comes as part of a larger deal involving two other public radio stations and Gothamist's network of local news sites. KPCC in Pasadena, Calif., will take over LAist, while WAMU in Washington will acquire DCist.
