(And by the way, when can we get CitiBike in JH?  We need it!)


PLEASE - Maybe if they didn't have a monopoly on bike share and maybe Melinda Katz gave a crap about it. It would completely open up the neighborhood.

I hope someone finally does something about the cabinet guys. I don't know why they were never completely taken down yet.

Community Trade and Classifieds / Spinet piano available for (practically) free
« Last post by pducett on May 19, 2019, 06:59:20 PM »
Dear neighbors,
I’ve had a spinet uptight piano — nothing special —that I don’t play any more. If anyone would like it, I’m asking $100.  You would have to remove it and retune it at your own expense. I live in an elevator building, Andy the piano is on wheels - so it’s easy to move. 

E-mail me here, please.

I live on corner of 83rd and 35th Avenue.

If no one wants this spinet piano for themselves, any suggestions for a school or organization which would accept it as a donation?

Thanks, neighbors.

I just used Andrew Bartels for my kitchen renovation in my JH co-op with IKEA cabinets (Semihandmade fronts). http://www.bartelscarpentry.com/about

Beautiful renovation, Nicole. I love your floor — and that light fixture! Is that from Schoolhouse Electric?

Hi Rory,

I just finished my kitchen using Ikea - everything but the doors, which I had made custom.



Sync construction in Jackson Heights did the work. Aleks is the founder and general contractor on my job: 917-365-3727 or Aleks@syncconstruction.com

They did a great job. I'll use them again.

Jeff, could you snap a photo of the actual tile? And where is it? Bath?

A lot of subway tiles are still available.

I found a lot of help at this retro renovation site:

Neighborhood Chat / Re: Travers Park Update

Let's be serious. The garage exit poses no threat to children playing in the park. This used to be a much more heavily trafficked street before the park took over the rest of the street. I don't recall there being any problems then. Why make a big deal of it now? I'm more concerned with the loss of the playing field. We used to have tennis, softball, soccer and cricket (sometimes all at the same time) in addition to the soccer games in The Garden School's schoolyard. Plus roller hockey years ago. Now just tag and Frisbee, I guess.

Wanted to bump this up to 2019. Any contemporary recommendations? We need someone to do a bunch of units in our coop building. TIA.
