In case anybody can use the info policy was updated to include basically anyone:
"We are also offering a limited number of appointments for customers who have urgent international travel in the next 72 hours (3 business days) for reasons other than a life-or-death emergency. Customers must wear cloth face coverings in all common areas, including our lobbies, and observe strict social distancing."
But in the tristate area you cannot get an appointment for at least a week.

Interesting question would doing a rapid Covid test be able to differentiate if one has covid or a different virus?
I am assuming it just shows if a person is viral.
Any educated thoughts here?

What if I moved within New York City since the last time I voted?
When you move, New York State law requires you to change your address with the BOE within 25 days. You do this by submitting a new voter registration form and filling in the information on the form, including information in the box labeled “Voting information that has changed”. Fill in your new and old address, check the box for the party you wish to be enrolled in (do this even if you were enrolled in a party at your old address), and provide any other requested information. If you moved but you didn’t change your address with the BOE before the deadline, you should go to your new polling place and vote by affidavit ballot. Call 866-VOTE-NYC to find out whether your change of address has been processed.

I think the deadline refers to 25days before election so may be too late to change for nov 3. See rest of faq
Thanks! but it seems that voting by affidavit ballot should do the trick.

actually i take that back, looks like manor heights is about the same walk, could go to Cong. Chasidei Belz Staten Island, 74 Wellbrook Ave, Staten Island, NY 10314 for example.
So the are both an hour walk according to google
Cong. Chasidei Belz Staten Island, 74 Wellbrook Ave, Staten Island, NY 10314
R Ivri 3151 Hylan Boulevard, Staten Island, NY 10306

PVC is very easy to work with and of course you can get 2 smaller pipes and connect them using a coupling. Use pvc primer and glue if you want to make that connection permanent.
Thank you very much that was my next option, but I ended up ordering from a local Jewish plumbing supply warehouse.
Probably paid a little more but it was delivered to my door $50 for a 4" diameter 20' long.

If you have the answer why ask?
It makes it a difficult read.
Sorry..?
I was just thinking out loud and trying to get people with experience chime in.
I actually just came back from Home Depot and they don't even have PVC pipes longer than 10'
This type of thing somebody with experience would be able to help me.
I just keep the trunk open and tie it down... (Unless it's a really long drive...
Why wouldn't you be able to connect 2 smaller ones?
They have a fatter and skinnier side so they can slide into each other. Lol he was having a convo in his mind and decided to let us in on it...

Thanks!

Probably not.

I'm not totally understanding this, I use a pvc.
The pvc is just to allow the tarp to role. If you want to go outside and do it urself, go ahead...
As for the slant, there def needs a slant and having some kind of ledge/track for the tarp to be on is a good idea. The 2 ways to make the slant is either have the succa boards made on a slant (little more difficult, but no wind problems, no support problems etc.) Or to have your succa boards straight and just have a track that's on a slant.
I hope I'm being clear...
Very Clear, Thank you very much!
How thick should my PVC pipe be 6"?

You would still need it to KEEP the pitch. You would also need a way to ensure the tarp is taut.
My understanding @ejb123 and @Josef.koney disagree, they think you don't need PVC etc, unless I misunderstood 
You will need a pitch - ideally the schach will also be slanted so that the tarp lies on the pitched schach otherwise the pooling will occur.
Thanks was in middle of writing something up... Forgot I wrote that. Lol only thing I would add is if it's not possible for you to do a string both ways, and relying on the slant to role one way is needed,  a u will need a good slant

So even a slight pitch of let's say 6" for the entire 12' is good and I wouldn't need the whole 2x4 and pipe thingy?

I did last year just a tarp (as tight as possible) but no slant and the water built up, when I came home after a day of rain there was a 2ft deep puddle of water which I had to shovel out.
My neighbor did the same thing but did not come home on time... his whole 2x4s and Schach snapped in half and broke some panels. he had to redo the whole Sukkah!
That's why I don't want a redo of that I want to a little more professional is the pully/tarp/pvc on slanted 2x4 a very big job?

Hi all,
I am trying to make my Shlock for the first time, just some amateur questions.
How thick should my PVC pipe be?
How much of a pitch/slant do my 2x4s need to be?
TIA!
