Neighborhood Chat / Re: The Eclipse in JH

Same. I am new to the area and was encouraged by a neighbor to go to Travers Park for viewing. So glad I did. It was such a nice time sharing the wonders of nature with such an eclectic, generous and enthusiastic group. What a treat for a Monday afternoon!

4:30 AM! This time I saw who was honking 5 times in the middle of residental neighborhood!! USPS big truck! Extremely loud. How can I complain? I know we live in a big city, I really don't mind noise in general, but this is so disrespectful.

11:30 PM and some idiot is honking like crazy! I didn't bother to look through the window, but it's usually limo driver, or whoever. Of course, they woke up the baby, this just drives me nuts!

Neighborhood Chat / The Eclipse in JH

 Wanted to mention the quiet but fun spirit in the neighborhood with eclipse viewers of all stripes. Everyone was smiling and sharing and happy. Felt similar to venturing out after a big snowfall. Anyone else?

Hi All,

We are selling a much loved yellow and silver adult one-speed, fat-tired cruising bike along with a mint condition Topeak child seat that holds up to 50 pounds.  The child seat clicks onto the rear of the bike.  The bike has no seat, but otherwise it is in excellent working condition.  $100 for both items, preferably sold together.  Please contact me, Jiro, here if you are interested.

Neighborhood Chat / PS 69?
« Last post by JHReader on Yesterday at 06:18:05 PM »
Does anyone know anything about the assistant principal position at PS 69? A friend just let me know that they are hiring an assistant principal (http://schools.nyc.gov/NR/rdonlyres/9B5724B8-9C67-43A6-A129-247001AB7353/0/APPostings81617.pdf), and I am curious if any parents know what's going on. Thanks!

I have another idea.

They are well known enough to go upstairs in the new Bruson Building.

Yeah commercial businesses on the side streets (with lower rents) are key.  It always seems to be where the more interesting and unusual businesses are located (like in the East Village and the Upper East Side). We have that too in Jackson Heights, but one of our difficulties is not enough commercial spaces on side streets and the concentration of retail on a few main avenues and streets. I imagine some of this is a legacy of our garden city heritage, and the aspiration to separate residential and commercial.

I also like the "amalgamating" with City Coffee idea.  I seem to remember that a local club meets there but otherwise it's always completely empty when i walk by.
