Mark asks…

What is the best place to live in New York City?

like manhattan and harlem and brooklyn and others. please be descriptive about the places because i want to live their in the future.

Administrator answers:

So let’s see;
I used to live in queens so i most definitely choose queens (;
but it depends on how much money you’ve got and where you’re going to work and etc

But how about Forest Hills, Rego Park, Fresh Meadows.
Brookyln is a nice place to live- but i think it’s best if you choose a nice area to live in because there are some dangerous areas.
Manhattan has some cheap apartments that are okay but it’s also a personal decision.

Goodluck :]

Jenny asks…

If my office is in Times Square what are some cheapish and reasonably priced neighborhoods that I can live in?

I am moving to NY and my office will be in Times Square. what neighborhoods have good transport links between Times Square? Thanks in advance
My budget is around $2000 – $2500 and my key concern is getting to work in the winter. I am unused to living somewhere so cold.Also as I am just newly moving to the city I would like to be somewhat close to everything for at least the first 6 months -1 year or so!

Administrator answers:

There is nothing cheapish in Manhattan unless you consider a shoebox sized studio beneath 1st Ave. On the Upper East Side cheapish at around $1400/month. I’d recommend western Queens, which is only 15-25 minutes from Times Square via subway. Neighborhoods such as Woodside, Astoria, Sunnyside, Long Island City, Elmhurst, Rego Park, Forest Hills, Kew Gardens, and parts of Flushing are all very close via subway and offer much more in terms of what you’re getting for your rent.

David asks…

Where is the best place to open a street wear clothing store in NYC?

I currently own a bootique in florida but i would like to relocate the store aswell as myslef to NYC. Its a risky move so i need help trying to find the best area! location, location, location!!

Administrator answers:

If you like Queens NY some parts of Queens Blvd near the Queens mall. Forest Hills or Rego Park.
Near subways and mixed neighborhood White 70% Spanish /Black 30%
Also along LIC/Astoria on Broadway or Steinway.
People from Greece , Asia , S. America .
Has alot more walking traffic in LIC
And is building up because is so close to Manhattan people prefer living there.
In Manhattan is way to much $$ for everything.

Good luck

email me if you have questions.

William asks…

What are some good Book Recommendations?

I like to read fantasy, and since I’m going on a long plane flight next week, i am in desperate need for some good books to read on a plane. Something Disney World related would be pretty cool, since that’s where I’m going!

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!

Susan asks…

What does the hyphen mean in long island city addresses?

Whenever I see a long island city address it will have a hyphen in it (e.g. 15-00). Can someone tell me what that means?

Administrator answers:

The hyphen is a common feature in addresses in all of Queens, not just LIC, with only a few exceptions, like in Forest Hills Gardens, which has “normal” addresses.

Although the system is not perfect, the numbers before the hyphen refer to the closest numbered street intersecting that address, so, for example, 36-01 35th Avenue in Astoria, which is the address of the Museum of the Moving Image, is at the intersection of 36th Street.

The numbers before the hyphen have from 1 to 3 digits, while the 2 digits after the hyphen refer to the regular sequential house number along that block, so that the number will go from “36-00″ to “36-whatever”, until 37th Street, when it will begin with “37-00″.

I am pretty sure the dashes are used to avoid any sort of confusion with long numbers, although Brooklyn has a similar system with their numbered streets without the dashes.

(BTW, i realized later that the hyphens are necessary, because when you read them out loud, you say “thirty-six dash oh one”, or “two twenty-two dash fifty”, etc. And in case you ever had a house number such as “8-00″, you would have to read that as “eight dash oh oh (zero zero)”, never as “eight hundred”…)
