I haven't worked at Terraza 7, so I have no idea what the scene is, but since the gig at NOVO died there isn't a venue in the neighborhood that actually offers musicians any money. I love Espresso 77, but that's a "pass the hat" gig and that insures that I'm not going to be able to book the level of musicians I want to play with (and you'd want to hear) to the neighborhood. My friend Joe is trying to get a steady summer public performance series with a jazz focus, they've had workshops and performances for the last two summers, but those are intermittent and ancillary to supporting a vibrant neighborhood musical scene.

But given the disappearance of live music from most venues that are not music destinations, I'm not sanguine.

Another option -- a bit closer than the Flushing options and a bit better than the local ones -- is Natural Tofu in Sunnyside.

Yes, the vendor at the farmers' market is excellent but it doesn't help if I'm jonesing for fish in the middle of the week. The couple of times that I've been to Pacific I left without buying anything. The quality just wasn't there. When I see whole fish with extremely cloudy eyes it tells me a lot about what the other products might be like. All the stuff that I've seen at the regular super markets always looks really sad, although I did get a decent piece of salmon at Foodtown once.

The fact is there is little or no live music in JH.  You have to leave the neighborhood to see/hear live music.  Yes, there is the solo/duo here and there but there is not much else.  Part of the reason is the ethnic/cultural makeup and part is the real estate issue.  Lots of families and not many young singles or young couples and real estate is crazy.  By 8:00 on a weekend night most things are shut down.  The only night life is on Roosevelt and that can be a bit on the seedy side and not about music.  As (or if) the nabe changes we may see music and theatre etc but it may take a while.  I don't see the audience or the venues at this time.

How are prices at the farmers market booth?

High but not exorbitant
If so, your framing is nauseating ("himself") - classic tabloid smear tactics.

It is possible to disagree without being rude; try it some time. Peralta is the sponsor of the bill - that's not someone who is just passively waiting to receive a raise.
