Reasons why New York Sucks - Page 103

post #1531 of 8225
I went out and found 5" of snow on my car last night around 10 and it was still sleeting and I'm in upper Manhattan. Crazy.

Last year wasn't it 70 around this time? Not sure if I want that happening in MARCH.

I remember taking the 6 to Pelham and walking to the beach some years ago in March. It was like 85 degrees and the busses weren't running there yet.

In a couple of months, we will all be complaining about how hot and muggy it is, and how our A/C bills are astronomical.

I will be foremost among these complainers, so I'm not saying there's anything wrong with it. I'm just saying it will happen.

my heating bill is typically 2-3x my AC bill.

That's interesting.... What's your heating situation? We are on a natural gas fired baseboard heaters, and our gas bill during the winter to heat ~900SF is about $100. Our power bill to (barely) cool the same space during the summer is $300.

I figured this is a pretty good place to ask.

 

I plan on moving to new york in the june, more specifically queens from the west coast. My friend found a place in queens for 1400 a month for a one bedroom, is that pretty standard?

 

Also, I plan on transferring to Queens College, hows the school? Just want to get my bachelors in accounting, and how hard is it to find a job? Would be looking for a entry level accounting job, have a couple years of experience or literally any job that would pay my part of the rent.

Crazy. Wonder what makes yours so much more expensive.

Anyways, winter sucks and summer sucks, but the shoulder seasons are great!

That's an awfully broad question. Queens is a very large place. Where in Queens? What's the apartment like? Is it somewhere you want to live?

I paid a nearly $600 AC bill last August because ConEd had guesstimated my bill due to the strike. When I got my July bill and it was only ~$150 for gas & electric I decided to leave my AC on 24/7 during hot days in August. Then, boom! The bill came.

last year's summer was weird... I remember in the middle of august it was 95ºF then out of nowhere it started hailing 1" spheres of ice. I ran out of my house and slipped on the ice marbles and fell down my porch stairs in a vain attempt to park my car in the garage. Apparently there was a tornado lurking around brooklyn/queens.

this winter has been cold and snowy... so it can be basically described as normal wintery weather...

The sun is out, snow has melted; I hereby proclaim that Spring has sprung!

The 10 day forecast looks pretty good. I'll be looking to get golf swing reps in at some point.

I have no answer for any of those questions... haha well my friend lives there, so hopefully picked out a decent place. Never been to NY so I cant comment on if thats where I want to live, but I hear its not too far from manhattan, so im not worried.

 

But for curious as to how Queens college (CUNY) is and job out look, just need to pay for rent :(
