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
« Last post by itsit on Yesterday at 06:41:41 PM »
 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.

I feel very confident that the Arepa Lady and her adult children will manage quite well on their own working with Commercial Brokers in search of a reasonable decent space which doesn't have to be on pricey 37 Ave or Roosevelt Ave since they have a large loyal following so a side street would be fine.

The Japanese place 969 Coffee on 80th St. is a good example of this. Hope it works out for Arepa Lady!

I did notice a recent renovation of a small space on 85th St. just into Jackson Heights off Roosevelt Ave next to Linden Ct. I'm not sure if it's being renovated so they can advertise it for lease or it they already have a tenant. Also not sure if it's set up for kitchen facilities but maybe it could be a possiblity. http://bit.ly/2uZpKVs
