Neighborhood Chat / Tourism agency tells NYers to visit JH
« Last post by toddg on Yesterday at 10:40:11 PM »
NYC & Company, the city's tourism arm, has chosen Jackson Heights as one of ten neighborhoods that New Yorkers should visit.  There are cool-looking posters of each neighborhood as part of the campaign.   Unfortunately, the city hasn't yet posted the Jackson Heights poster so it's still a bit of a mystery.   I'll post it here as soon as I find it.

The website features some JH restaurants and has a brief video of momo-making.

A few years ago, a group of us tried to approach the owners about a strategy for saving the movie theater.   We couldn't even get a meeting.
Neighborhood Chat / Re: 74th Street Station
« Last post by toddg on Yesterday at 10:30:34 PM »

If you look at a Queens bus map, you can see why the Flushing station is so high.  In addition to being a dense urban center, an amazing number of bus lines from all over eastern Queens converge there and people pour into the station.  We have a few bus lines like that in Jackson Heights, but not nearly as much.  But we do have extremely high transfer volumes between the #7 train and the underground lines that aren't captured in MTA's turnstile statistics.   No matter how your slice it, both stations are very busy and crowded!

Thanks @Shelby2 – I have run across dozens of listings (renovated and, er, not) via google image search, but the addresses will prove even more fruitful – great idea. And thanks for contributing to such an amazing site. It's much in part to this board that we're here in the first place; we feel so lucky to have this resource!

@rhydewithdis – thx for the rec!
That way competition leads to slashing prices. Win for everyone that shops there.

Unsustainable profit margins leads to closing of dollar stores. Win for everyone that doesn't shop there.

I hope it's a dollar store.
Closing or opening?
I hope it's a dollar store.
What store closed on 37th Ave?  Lots of stores have closed on 37th Ave.
