Neighborhood Chat / Re: Double Parking on 73St & 37th Ave.
« Last post by Alfster on Today at 03:27:15 PM »
I have a proposal to alleviate some of the parking woes. First, all cabs and TLC vehicles should be banned from on street parking, like other commercial vehicles. Second, sell parking passes to NYC residents and ban out of state cars from parking on the street. This way the insurance frauds will either have to pony up for parking or actually register their cars in NY. I'm always amazed at the number of shoppers on 35th Ave who drive here from Ohio and North Carolina to buy their Basmati rice.
youre right about taxis. Jackson heights is full of cabs. why arent they treated like other commercial vehicles? I have observed people parking their personal vehicle then switching the spot and parking a taxi.

I agree.  Taxis should be treated like commercial vehicles and, furthermore should be ticketed swiftly for any double parking or illegal stopping/standing.

Hmm, I guess that you meant ban out of NYC cars including other cars having NY state tags, right?  Sounds like a good idea, but I'm sure that there would be a huge opposition against that idea.

 Look up this company on Yelp- Global Solutions Appliance Repair. The Queens number is 929/250-4328. Am in the middle
of same repair here and so far, am happy with these people who were highly recommended by a neighbor.

Funny, I was thinking it needs to be commercial only around there and maybe Roosevelt during certain hours.

the food bazaar on Northern is very much like a non-NYC store, and my Nebraska native partner really loves it. we do need to make another trip soon.


This Food Bazaar is the BEST!

I'm about to read the city and state article posted, thanks...
Here's a hot of the presses article from the Intercept- digs deep into his influence on all of city politics. This affected Dromm, and Moya for certain. Sad about Cory Johnson and also JVB, who is going to get seriously dented by it.

Neighborhood Chat / Re: New street crossing assist signals
« Last post by JHMNY on Today at 09:03:07 AM »
That makes sense. The one in the photo is installed at the corner of Lemon Tree, pointing across 78th Street toward the bank.  At first glance, it just seemed too close of a distance for a traditional signal. I assume they'll be installing more throughout 37th Ave.
