Businesses collude so that we overpay for groceries, meters issue illegal tickets, the batting cages on Rockaway Turnpike are closing, we have the only bridge in the state of New York that doesn't take E-ZPass, taxes are some of the highest in the country and our county executive is facing federal charges for having his hand in the till. Why do we live here again?

Don't eve get me started on the sanitation department

Maybe im just imagining things, but i feel like the batting cages are closing every year.

Tried BINGO too. It's AMAZING! Huge selection on everything, everything is kosher, and prices are unbelievable. Sale items are even better. Meat department is great, Salmon regular price is 7.99/lb. Eggs regular price is .99 for dozen-in-a-half. Spanish onions .29/lb, Macintosh apples .59/lb. Cherry tomatoes .99. Chanukah section is huge and dirt cheap.

EASY PARKING! In the amount of time it takes to park by GG, you can just drive to BINGO!

P.S. Very little non-Cholov Yisroel items.

If you shop at the right times, parking in GG is not bad.

Shopping at the time right times usually means the most inconvenient times..

its possible that the meter maid gets a notification that the meter has expired and they can print the ticket out right away without having to get to the spot in time and that is how your sister got the ticket.

Once the time expires you have to pull out of the spot before putting money in...

Hoping to get there soon. The $5 lotus butter is the best price anywhere. Literally.
if it's all good fresh Israeli butter, cream cheese, and dairy, and cheese then we're all set. The non-CY people can just get in a standard grocery.
