Charles asks…

What do you think is the most beautiful residential district of toronto?

what is the richest district of toronto? the one with the clothing stores brand? (haute couture – fashion media)

Administrator answers:

For beauty, my selection (based on personal prejudice) is The Beach, some like the spelling with ‘es’. For richest it would be either upper Rosedale or Forest Hill although some of those high rise condos in downtown are dang expensive. The clothing district was on, or near, Spadina, south of Queen St. W. But if you want stores, then Yorkville, Yorkdale Mall, Fairview Mall, or maybe Scarborough Town Centre. I’m not sure if Sherway Gardens is considered as Toronto or Mississauga.

Jenny asks…

What is a good work out and diet for a 15 year old?

My weight is 110 lbs, my height is 5″2. BMI = 20.1 (I am at a healthy weight for my hegith). I would like to get more muscular, especially on my arms and abs. What would be a good work out that I can do each night using dumbbells and body exercises, espcially upper body exercises and how long should I spend on each one? And I also need to know what I Should be eating and not eating to get more muscular. I don’t eat fast food and I don’t drink coke or other sugary drinks.

Administrator answers:

Don’t take supplements for your body. Not worth it. Hard work, and a healthy diet is all you need. I’m not an expert at all since I barely exercize or workout. But i’ve asked the same question enough times to know what I or you would need to do. But I just haven’t done it. Someone sent this to me, to help me out with my workout.

Well, Before i go to school i have Total for breakfastl, lunch whatever they have and fruit and vegatables.snack when i get home 3:30 usaully an egg sandwhich and a big glass of water wait 30 min then go exercising, after is dinner then 1 hour later i go running again here it’s cold now. I live in usa, WV. Ok for my conditioning on the off-season / weekends:

Take a 10 cards out of the 52. Joker = 20 reps Ace = 15 reps king queen jack = 10 reps you know 2-10.well you take the 10 cards flip over one say 8 i’ll do 8 crunches 8 sit ups 8 side to side sit ups 8 leg lifts 8 bicycles without arm motion 8 bicyles with arm motion..then i do 8 reps of 3 yoga ab exercises. And hold my self up on my forearms.

Carol asks…

What are some books you would recommend?

What are any books you would recommend, i read mature books, preferably in the “teen” or “adult” section of your local bookstore, i need new books to read that i haven’t already read. Please give me any good books and recommendations.

Administrator answers:

These are some of my favorite series. Keep in mind that some of them are adult and will contain adult content, I will put a warning star next to any adult books. No, I am not trying to corrupt todays youth, but some people are more mature than others. If you want the summaries of these books or have any questions then email me at as that is now my more used account. Happy reading!

David asks…

help, I need directions to barnes and nobles in forest hills from jamaica ave by train or bus?

I need directions from jamaica ave to forest hills barnes and nobles please help

Administrator answers:

The B&N on Austin Street is within 4 blocks of the 71st Continental Avenue subway station.

Just hop on any Manhattan-bound E or F train from Jamaica and get off at 71st Continental, come out of the station on the south side of Queens Boulevard.

Austin Street is right in front of that old-European-style Long Island Railroad station that crosses over 71st Continental. Walk that way, and turn right onto Austin street, the B&N is 3 blocks down on the left side.

Welcome to my neighborhood, hope you will have a good time.

Sandy asks…

What are some nice areas to live in in Queens ?

an area that is maybe close to a brigde for quick acess out of Queens heading north.

Administrator answers:

Elmhurst is a complicated neighborhood in western Queens. It has come a long way since troubles in the 1980s, even longer since its colonial founding in the 1650s. Elmhurst is the thriving home of families — middle class and working class — housed in a mix of older multi-family homes, and co-op and apartment buildings. Immigrants, especially from Asia and Latin America, have made Elmhurst maybe the most diverse part of Queens.

Floral Park, Bellerose, and New Hyde Park are names of neighborhoods in both Queens and Nassau County. Back in nineteenth century, before Queens became part of NYC, the County of Queens included much of what is now Nassau County. These few neighborhoods still share names.

Forest Hills, a neighborhood in central Queens, has three distinct parts. This profile covers beautiful Forest Hills Gardens, the adjoining area of single and multi-family homes, and the higher density apartment buildings and co-ops on the north side of Queens Boulevard. Plus area shopping and neighborhood basics are covered.

Jackson Heights is a bustling neighborhood, famous for its garden apartment buildings and its diversity. Enjoy this neighborhood profile on Jackson Heights real estate, history, restaurants, and local institutions.

Donna asks…

What are the prices and things for NYC movie tickets?

Okay, so a couple of questions.
1) for “kids” tickets, what does that mean? under 12, under 13, under 10… can you buy only kids tickets for a pg-13 movie?
2) related… does pg-13 mean you have to be over 13 to see it? i thought it meant parental guidance whatever but some theaters make you buy adult tickets for it…
3) is it true that if you see a morning movie (11:00 or so) the tickets are half-price?

Administrator answers:

Hi :)
So it all depends on WHICH theater you go to. For example, a ticket in Forest Hills, Queens will cost 13.50 but if i go to Sunny side, Queens it costs like 5.00 or 7.00
It all changes with kids too. It depends where. You can use to find reviews on theaters in NYC and then call the theater for their prices.
20 PG 13 means you have to be 13 to buy a ticket. Therefore, buy an adult ticket. If you are under 13, you have to go with someone 18 and over to see the movie.
3) Yep! It’s called matine. (ma-te-nay)

John asks…

does anybody know how to get from forest hills queens ny to 165 plank road coxsackie, newyork 12051 by train?

does anybody know how to get from forest hills queens ny to 165 plank road coxsackie, newyork 12051 by train or bus and how much would it be round trip ? i need to visit my husband in jail i would really appreciate it if someone can let me know thanks

Administrator answers:

Closest will be Amtrak’s Hudson Station, but Amtrak is expensive.
Also from Hudson Station, you must take taxi to there because there is no public transportation or call the jail to see if they have shuttle bus or not.

To get to AMTRAK station at Penn Station, you could take Long Island Railroad from Forest Hill to Penn Station or take cheaper subway line, Manhattan-bound (E) train from Forest Hills-71st Av to 34th St-Penn Station.

AMTRAK train you must make reservation.
