What timing, it’s Yom Kippur!

Food, glorious food!
We’re anxious to try it
Three banquets a day –
Our favourite diet!

In our last post we shared the news about the opening of Adda, an Indian restaurant, near LaGuardia College. Today NY Magazine conjectures that Adda could be the most exciting new Indian restaurant in NYC.

The 2018 Vendy Awards is next week, and the WSJ profiles one of the finalists Burmese Bites which serves their fare at Continue reading

A new Indian restaurant named Adda has opened in Long Island City according to Eater.  Located at 31-31 Thomson Ave across from LaGuardia College, it is owned and operated by some of the same people who ran the previous restaurant, Unicos Tacos, at the same site.  Despite that establishment’s brief tenure, this less-eclectic concept looks promising Continue reading

Would you hold it near as it were your own?

ONE million square feet of office space is up for lease in the Citi Building in Court Square as Citigroup consolidates according to the New York Post.  That’s a lot I think.  In addition, YIMBY revealed that a 24-story spec1 office building containing 400k sq. ft. is coming to Queens Plaza South.  Ahh, 24 stories, that’s a lot easier to comprehend spacially – but I’m glad they also supplied a picture.  As for the Citi building, a million square feet is roughly 2/3 of the tower.  Yeah, a lot.

In order to attract commercial tenant(s), the owner of the Citi building plans on transforming the 5-story retail “atrium” to Continue reading
