Stop & Stor is a family-owned and operated business, established in 1980. They began as a small business and with the help of very loyal customers and outstanding customer service, they grew into one of the largest and most respected storage companies in New York. They've grown into becoming New York's Self Storage Leader by constantly offering more to their customers, from cutting-edge facilities and friendly staff to exclusive promotions and rooms for every budget. We just rented a storage space from Stop and Stor in Queens Village. The facility is clean, well-lit and air-conditioned. It was convenient to store some of our things while we were waiting to move into our new house.

Look's small on the outside but stepping in is a whole lot different. Stepping in, you'll see a whole variety of food items. From breakfast to lunch, or perhaps you'll like something from their buffet line. Nevertheless, it was quite an experience. My order also came out quickly, surprisingly it was of great quality. Hopefully, I can come back once more. The best! Just like in the movie Elf, except not a joke not said with irony. Finding a really fresh breakfast buffet really made my morning.

Not going to lie I had doubts about this spot, the Smoke BBQ Pit but my fiancée suggested it so we went anyway and I actually liked it so it’s definitely worth it to try it! Of course, everything is relative, but the BBQ I just enjoyed at Smoke BBQ Pit in Springfield Gardens (Jamaica), Queens, was about the best I have sampled north of the Mason-Dixon Line and east of the Alleghenys. The food was on point, the pork ribs may not have fallen off the bone but that type of cooking takes a lot of time and effort so it's very understandable that it wasn't at that level. The beef ribs on the other hand did break apart so easily and were juicy. The Bake Macorni and cheese was delicious just as much as all the other sides. Portions are generous and the pork and beef ribs are my favourite. The service and food were always excellent. We will be coming back

I love to try new foods from different cultures and I had been hearing good things about Brasserie Creole, so I decided to try them out because I was looking for an authentic Haitian restaurant comparable to ones I know from Florida. This is definitely the spot. Griot, pikliz, black rice, rice and beans, red snapped they have it all. I definitely recommend it if you're trying to go in on some Haitian food. I am going to go again with some friends next time so we can order different things and I can try everyone's food lol.

My friend is Haitian and really wanted some Haitian patties, so I went on Yelp to search for a place in Queens near where I work to get some. I place my order online before arriving. The employee had a hard time understanding me which is understandable as I tend to speak soft, and I don't think he completely understood what I was saying. I ended up ordering a dozen patties, along with 2 more individual ones. I got a mix of chicken, fish, herring, and beef. I arrived at 5:30 pm, and I was able to find street-side parking very easily, there is 1hr. parking and the parking meter is very close to the bakery. They offer soups, bread, pastries, and store made juices and drinks. I think the worker spoke French, he was very friendly and even gave me the 2 other patties for free. The patties were very hot and smelled amazing. My friend loved the patties, and so did my family they're a bit spicy and so full of flavour and smokiness. I will definitely return again to try some of the other baked goods they offer.

One of my favorite restaurants. Love the Caribbean vibe this place has. From the island sounds of music while you dine to the well put together dishes that are served. The food is exceptional. My favourite was the oxtail meal, I forgot the name but it was really good. I am planning to go again with my friends this time. This place has excellent features for pictures and social media. The floral wall and swing is one of My favorite things about this place.

I had no idea that Holliswood was a hot spot in the roaring twenties. So Holliswood was bought by Frederick Dunton in 1884. He had an entire mansion built for himself on the street he named after HIMSELF (Dunton St.) called Hollis Hall! After Frederick Dunton died, it was turned into a speakeasy called Brown’s chophouse! This was during the Prohibition era, of course. I wonder how Frederick Dunton felt about that! Lol. It was torn down after prohibition though, so there’s no way to look at it 🥺 I wonder if there are any legends in the area about it still!
So Baisley Park has a couple of cool things. 1. The pond 2. The cricket courts 3. The tennis courts! There’s a bunch to the north of the park and a couple to the south as well! You have to purchase a tennis permit to use them, but you can play anytime from April to Thanksgiving, which is a SUPER LONG season! Make sure to follow the rules, though, so smooth-soled shoes and only 6 balls per court. The ball is in YOUR court, are you going?
So the Aden Beauty Supply Store in Queens is too good not to visit. It’s clean, friendly, nice, and has literally everything you could possibly need for gorgeous hair. They’ve got glue, gel, scissors, tons of extensions from cheap to ✨expensive✨. All the employees that work there are super knowledgeable about the products. So whatever your texture or issue, they’ll know exactly what you need. I’ve got super dry hair, and they recommended to me a great product with jojoba oil! Try it out!
