and all (or most) of them draw diners from Manhattan and other boroughs because they're of very high quality. i could use a bit more variety, too, but it's not like we're slogging through the avocado toast jungle of the West Village.....
Hi Everyone,

While I am working with all conventional methods to help a client of mine, I thought I'd put this out there in case there is someone on the forum that has an apartment for rent in Jackson Heights.

We are working with a client who has good credit, good liquid assets, but is unable to produce documents to verify income. We may consider going the insurance route, but for now sticking to more conventional methods. Lack of income documentation makes is tricky with certain buildings and boards, but we are committed to finding him a home, because everyone should have one :)

Any and all suggestions welcome. Please text or email me. Cell: 917-848-6928  Email:

There are also four or five more on Broadway moving up into the low 80's.

Donna, when I moved to the area 16 years ago you had Sripraphhai on 65th St in Woodside.  Along with Thaan, you have 5 others close by (Sompong, Kitchen 79, Arunee, Black Thai & Raan Kway Teow).  Also, on Broadway & 75th St you have Sabay and at least 2 others on Roosevelt Ave between 70 & 74 St plus possibly 3 others on Woodside Ave in the 70's for a total of 12. 
Hi, neighbors, hope to see you soon at one of these events! Please share and let me know if you have any questions at all.

but it's just a fact that a transit hub with 5 subway lines is an advantage over the 82nd St station with just the 7.

That's an opinion. There are other factors that people other than yourself may consider and put different weight on that you do: foot traffic near transit hubs; traffic congestion and noise associated with a bus depot; real estate costs; and also how much walking they like to do on a daily basis.

Local Legend: Singer Ali Dineen On Jackson Heights Inspirations
Singer Ali Dineen has no shortage of musical inspirations — Lin-Manuel Miranda was her teacher — but Jackson Heights is chief among them.

JACKSON HEIGHTS, QUEENS — Folk singer Ali Dineen has no shortage of musical inspirations — her seventh-grade English teacher was Lin-Manuel Miranda, who went on to compose the award-winning Broadway musicals "In the Heights" and "Hamilton"— but the most significant may be the rich cultural diversity that surrounded her as she grew up in Jackson Heights.

The meaning of home is a major theme in Dineen's soulful lyrics. And, for her, home is Jackson Heights, where she developed a fascination with the musical traditions of other countries, particularly those in Central and South America.

"I am always trying to write about larger histories, and a larger human condition than just my own," Dineen told Patch. "Maybe growing up around so many ways of life influenced that."

Dineen has performed at festivals across the country, including the Brooklyn Folk Festival, the Caramoor American Roots Music Festival and the Savannah Music Festival. She teaches at the Jalopy Theatre and School of Music in Brooklyn.

Real Estate & Home Improvement / Upgrading Electricity in a 1 family house
« Last post by Yankswun98 on Yesterday at 08:51:13 PM »
I am looking to convert from a fuse to a breaker box.  I also want to have more outlets installed.  My original breaker box has only 4 fuses.

Has anyone done this upgrade in a home? Who did you use?  Did new wiring need to be installed from Con Ed?
