WHILE others dream of tasting menu’s and sidling up to the bar for a shot and a beer, in 2021 I greatly look forward to jammed subway platforms and cars. Never again will I take for granted the sea of humanity that is NYC. Or at least not until 2023. Instead of looking back at the annus horribilis, I prefer to dwell on the positive.[Read more…] about Looking Forward To The Same Old In The New Year
WELL we’re midway through the Festival of Lights and I’m happy to report there have only been five related apartment fires in LIC so far. In other local holiday news, you may have noticed that we’ve been putting out fewer posts in the past month. That’s because we’ve outsourced our employees to

THERE was a big election on Tuesday, everything went exactly according to plan and the polls and predictions were spot on. In fact, many would say it was over before it began. I’m referring to all the local Queens candidates, many of whom ran uncontested. Oh well, I guess we’ll have to wait until 2021 for some real nail-biting election excitement.[Read more…] about 2020 Election Update
