Easy to locate walking from the subway? I haven’t been to citi field in years, but this sounds like a reason to go. Oh...and The Mets. Haha.

it is in Citifield. so, if you can find that ;)

not meaning to be snarky. you don't have to enter the park. entrance is on the outfield side, closer to the willets point yards. where McFadden's was, i believe.

the volume of U.S. citizens who don't understand that "free speech" doesn't shield them from criticism of their speech (or questioning their motivation for said speech) is a real indictment of how we are failing our youth with an inadequate education system.

There are also far too many people who think that speech they don't agree with or challenges their belief systems should be squelched, and others when they can't mount a valid criticism think it's okay resort to ad hominem and Godwining.

I wear flip flops that cushion the impact. It makes a big difference.

Good news, but I was really hoping a Brooklyn Bagel would move in there.
Yeah, I actually reached out to them about that vacancy back in October (their reply in the pic attached).

Maybe if people keep asking they will move in here somewhere someday! It would be awesome. There's three of them in Astoria.

^having lived underneath a very heavy walker who paced his apartment at all hours of the night I will say learning to walk without striking first with your heel is a good idea. (We should all know how to do that if we've ever walked through grass barefoot) If someone is walking around their apartment walking in shoes (or even if barefoot, walking like they are wearing shoes) it's super loud.

Another option is to wear slippers or some kind of slip on sandals for indoors. I use an old pair of sandal like Crocs, which have a reasonably thick sole and are super comfortable. (When I first started working from home, I was wearing really thin slippers around the house, and developed a painful case of plantar facitis.)

Since you're in a a seemingly longer-term situation, I would try to see if using a lighter walking style - walking on the front of your feet - would help. That or perhaps wearing a pair of very soft slippers that could muffle the noise. It also could be that your neighbor is unreasonable though, and in that case, honestly, I would do as I do. I would not plan to stay there long-term because it's stressful to live a daily life with a neighbor that harasses you.

I understand where you're coming from, but the idea of changing the way you walk in your own apartment seems unreasonable. I'd probably be more focused on going after the neighbor for harassing the OP.

(Co-op living can be hard. I live on the 2nd floor, and a 5th floor neighbor on the other side of the hall regularly knocks on our down to tell us she can smell our cooking in her closet. No one else has ever complained about the smell of our cooking, and her claim is absurd.)

Neighborhood Chat / Re: Verizon Fios finally being wired down 37th Ave.

Our building is wired up (recently), but I've only noticed a small white box above everyone's door. It's pretty tiny, maybe like the size of two Altoids tins side by side. I haven't gone tracing things around to see if there's a larger utility box hanging around on any of the floors anywhere, but I haven't seen it if it's around.
