MORTGAGE RATES HAVE RISEN TO JUST BELOW 6%, WHICH ISN'T GOOD COMPARED TO LAST DECEMBER. BUT THE HISTORICAL AVERAGE IS 8%. IF YOU DON'T BUY. THEN YOU HAVE TO RENT-AND RENTAL PRICES ARE AT AN ALL-TIME HIGH. MORE
IMPORTANTLY, DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE INTEREST RATE IS WHEN YOU RENT? 100%! AT THE END OF THE DAY, YOUR CLIENTS ARE GOING TO PAY SOMEONE'S MORTGAGE AND BUILD SOMEONE'S EQUITY. THE QUESTION THEY NEED TO ASK THEMSELVES IS: WHOSE EQUITY DO THEY WANT TO BUILD-THEIR OWN OR SOMEONE ELSE'S?
The average rent for New York today is $5000. The market is still very hot. With open houses that have lines around the block or bidding wars going up to $1500 over ask. The only way around this mess is to work with an agent that has relationships with other agents. This will get your foot in the door and then you don’t have to compete with other applicants. If you need help navigate this market let me know.
I’m glad to have reserved the place 'Banc cafe', to spend my perfect birthday with friends and family. I had much research done on whether this place was fit to celebrate my perfect birthday and I'm so glad that last night went terrific! We made our start with quinoa-crusted onion rings before moving on to our main dish, sautéed scallops & shrimps. My expectations reached even higher when the waiters brought us a special birthday cake. The services were extremely quick and the best part was cutting my cake, though I wish it to be less dry. I didn’t know how much we spent at this party but, it was worth the experience and fun. You should invite your friends to this place for birthdays, I think that'll be great. Although, I didn't receive many gifts 😔🙄

Since I bought my dog over a year ago, I've been going to Murray Hill Pet Hospital. Dr. Dan and his team are fantastic. My previous vet, who was also in the region, was extremely expensive and was constantly attempting to upsell me on diagnoses and tests that I didn't believe my dog need. I just had an issue with my dog Max, so I phoned to see whether I needed to bring him in, and they gladly addressed all of my questions over the phone. Dr. Dan and his colleagues at Murray Hill Pet Hospital come highly recommended by me. They clearly care about the creatures they look after, and I like that they called me after I brought my dog in again when he became ill, which was quite considerate. If you're searching for a friendly veterinarian near East Midtown, I highly recommend him.

We were fortunate enough to be staying near the Taproom and arrived late on Saturday night when the music was loud, and the audience was young. We shared a pizza and got some excellent beer and an appetizer. I had poutine, which was fantastic. It's a nice place to have supper or cocktails. The restaurant was somewhat busy, but the service was excellent, and the meal was amazing! We enjoy trying new things at restaurants, and we were not disappointed. They were gracious enough to split the pizza order. One side should be vegetarian, while the other should be meat. There are vegetarian and vegan options available at reasonable pricing. I've been here a few times and intend to keep coming back. It's an excellent bar with excellent service and an excellent assortment of ales. The beverages menu changes on a daily basis (we know because we've been back several times!!) Also, the food is of very excellent quality. From modest pilsners to barley wines and milk stouts, the beer range is extensive. Working my way through the menus was a lot of fun. There are more beers here than in some of the 'world famous' beer places in France and Germany that I've visited. There are probably 30 or more on tap and 50 or more in the fridge. Prices range from a reasonable $7 for a local Pilsner to an exorbitant $48 for a bottle from beyond. For a cheap or costly night, this is ideal for beer enthusiasts. To soak up the beer, there is good food available. The staff was quick, pleasant, and helpful! The ambiance was ideal and inviting.

Yesterday for the first time I visited East River Park which, which abuts the East Village, the Lower East Side, and Chinatown, is situated along the East River - which is actually a sounding, not a river - between 12th Street and Jackson Street and runs between 12th Street and Jackson Street. The views to the east, toward Queens, Brooklyn, and the Williamsburg Bridge, are hard to top, but the views to the west are unsightly red-brick high-rise apartment blocks that are ubiquitous in regions of New York. Barbecues and picnics were being held throughout Lower Manhattan. In general, this is a pleasant park with excellent views of Brooklyn. There are fields for ball, soccer, and track, as well as old shade trees. In the spring, there are many gorgeous flower beds and blossoming trees. People were in huge groups (of course, no one was socially separating themselves from one another, and no one was wearing masks), enjoying the weather, the cool river breezes, and the sights while steaks sizzled on the grills. It recalled me of the 1970s when people genuinely spent time with their families. Long walks, picnics, ball games, and just hanging out are all great options. There are several soccer games with youngsters and casual games with families. It was interesting to watch the boats come and go and to see the Williamsburg bridge from a different viewpoint than we typically do. A lot of locals frequent come to this park to get some fresh air, and it has some great views of Brooklyn and the Williamsburg Bridge. Despite the fact that we went in the late fall, it was still a pleasant walk, and it would be even more lovely in the spring when everything is green and flowering. Everything appears to be in good working order, with plenty of places to sit and relax as well as some green area.

Today, we went to the Holographic Studios for a guided tour with Jason and had a fantastic time. The holograms are incredible, and Jason's explanation of the science and mechanics behind their creation was excellent. Of course, seeing the lasers is fascinating! However, a great piece of New York history is unexpectedly and delightfully woven into the mix of art, science, and engineering. The stories were informative and entertaining, spanning from the 1939 World's Fair to famous holograms to the history of analog engineering in the 1970s. This surprising attraction is well worth a visit! The tour took approximately an hour to complete, and when I left, I had a better understanding of how holograms are created, had seen several works of art that confounded the hell out of your eye (and brain), and had made a new friend in Doc Laser. Yes, Doc Laser is a little odd, but so are most bright and scientific individuals; it's what sets them apart and makes them'magical.' Yes, there is a tiny staircase to negotiate, but if I can do it, most people should be able to. Such an unique New York hidden gem! Dr. Laser's instructional tour can be tailored to children, adults, and seniors. A wealth of knowledge encased in a quirky, amusing, entertaining, and real packaging. The dedication and science that goes into making the sometimes-mysterious works of art is quite astonishing, and Doc Laser conveys the message in his own unique style, which is both entertaining and demonstrates a tremendous grasp of the subject. It was well worth the ten-dollar cab ride from Midtown, and it had us thinking about holograms even now. It's well worth it for a fun family outing. I really admire his dedication to science education for interns.
