What's the verdict on the weekly crime threads? I enjoyed it and felt it made the community and subreddit better (I know others obviously disagree). Any chance it'll be made permanent?


nemoid t1_iysfugg wrote

We're discussing it internally. Hopefully should have some type of direction soon.


IRequirePants t1_iyttldl wrote

Is it possible to do a hybrid approach? Shove the NYPost ones into the thread, but higher profile cases are allowed outside (e.g. crime involving a politician).


TwoCats_OneMan t1_iytx7en wrote

You need no direction, nor does there need to be discussion. Reddit has upvotes and downvotes. Your input is unnecessary short of a post outright promoting racism or violence.

The downvote and upvote decide all. If someone wants to post about a restaurant in San Francisco here or their favorite breed of dog, the upvote and downvote button can decide that as well regardless of whether it is germane to the city of New York or not.


nemoid t1_iyvc5v5 wrote

Sounds like you should start your own NYC sub then and moderate it the way you want.


WickhamAkimbo t1_j01o27y wrote

r/NYC is the better name. I think we'll all stay here. If you'd like to move to a differently-named sub to avoid the critics here, feel free.


EagleFly_5 t1_j0iaafa wrote

There’s also r/NewYorkCity too which is a good alternative from here, although less active. Name wise, it’s logical too since it’s the full name of the city, so people wouldn’t be confused. The 5 individual borough subs all have their own proper names, again easy to find and access for those who’d want an even more local perspective.

Don’t think the “3rd option” subs as an alternate to here & that sub aren’t doing too good since it could be the name, or overall as with any other new subreddit, finding your niche, and content/followers/active users in order to have that community grow.

I just got shitcanned so I am free to be honest now and... most of the mods are actually really nice people. You wouldn't believe the crap that they deal with on a daily basis (especially when anything controversial comes up).

It's really hard to balance moderation when both sides are screeching at you about how shitty of a job you're doing. If you go too far one way, the other side gets pissed and vice versa. No making everyone happy, I suppose.

Hi all, could anyone help me out with finding some of my childhood Asian food spots?

Specifically, are there any large filipino stores or asian stores in general that sell duck, roast pork, pig ears, steamed buns, shumai, etc. in or around Chinatown, specifically to go and usually in white or clear plastic containers? Or any spots that sold prepared filipino foods like ensaymada, hopia, pandesal, suman, etc.

A lot of stores away from NYC and even in CT bring this food from New York and sell it in their own mom n pop small asian marts. This food is my childhood and since the White Plains mall closed, we aren't sure where to buy this food anymore, but don't know where these Asian marts get this food either. They seem like the same source(s) too, since the recipe, containers and quality are consistently the same, but feel free to correct me!

I'm essentially looking for the source of where several Asian marts are getting the duck, roast pork, buns, filipino food, etc. from. If you aren't sure, I'll also take recommendations for spots with these foods!

Thanks for any help!

Yes it is safe in my experience, especially if you're in a touristy area and you ask another tourist to help you (even better if it's a small group/family you ask instead of a lone person).

I’m looking for a pub in Lower Manhattan that has outdoor seating with heaters! A friend is very Covid conscious but we need to stay warm. Can you suggest one?


EagleFly_5 t1_j002vfa wrote

Consider asking on r/FoodNYC (+ be specific), but for the most part, some places are already kicking off their outdoor heating systems now. 2 winters in due to the pandemic, nowadays it’s a mixed bag dining outdoors: on one hand it’s a different experience & easy to get in+out (still have to go indoors to use the restroom + talk to FOH staff), but it’s not the “cleanest” places in terms of vermin, it’s always uncertain in regards to extreme cold/snow days/ice that may inevitably happen this winter, and you can never know what happens outside those four walls of the outdoor dining shelter.

Try one of those outdoor seating areas at any bar. It's like sitting inside but you're outside. Covid doesn't exist when the enclosed shed is located on the street, it requires a physical address

Can I ask you about what it’s like living in NYC?

I’m in grad school in TX to be a mental health therapist (I absolutely love it!!). I am partially blind and in small rural TX transportation is horrible. Which makes everything else much more difficult. You can’t be as independent nor functional as a person without great transportation. Texas isn’t feasible for someone with a disability who can’t drive.TX is severely lacking in numerous areas especially for those with disabilities and lgbtq.

I honestly don’t mind paying more for a greater quality of life as a visually impaired person.

I’ve been doing a lot of research on states with opportunities and great transportation; NYC seems to be at the top concerning walkability and public transportation.

What’s your take on the transportation systems, walkability, culture, weather, amenities, and anything you’d like to discuss concerning NYC??

Thank you so very much for taking the time to answer my questions!!!!🖤


iv2892 t1_j0br2e5 wrote

Well it is expensive unless you move to a relatively unsafe neighborhood, so if money isn’t the issue. It’s really great, transportation is excellent, you can get anywhere in the city via subway, buses , scooter, bikes, Uber, taxi , etc. Weather depends on your taste , really cold and sometimes snowy winters, hot and muggy summers .

Does anyone know what happens if you quit after both the vesting period and employer’s deadline to submit paperwork to the state closes?

Me (and a friend in different facility) want to quit our current jobs. Vesting period ended already and the employer deadline was 11/30 for the second vesting period.

If we give notice and the bonus hasn’t been paid before we leave will we still receive it? Or do we have to wait until vesting period 4 (April through September 2023) to maximize our bonus?

hahcha t1_iypetgk wrote

been a while since I visited but when did they get rid of the bonus cash when loading your metro card with a certain amount of $? All the options I saw on the machine were with no bonus.


EagleFly_5 t1_iypmon1 wrote

Iirc it was a part of the MTA/MetroCard budget remedy in early 2019 (went in effect on 21 April 2019) in order to keep the base subway/bus fare at 2,75$ (still that amount today, even w/ OMNY/contactless pay), which fortunately they’ve done, but had to cut out the 5% bonus you had when reloading 5,50$ or more. It also meant bumping up prices of unlimited MetroCards to 33$ (7-day) and 127$ (30 day) which they’re at today in December 2022. In a way, Metro-North & LIRR fares increased too. Thanks to federal & state funding, even in the midst of the pandemic, fares have been stable, but it did mean cost of tolls for crossing MTA Bridges & Tunnels did get a slight increase in 2021.

It’s plausible at some point next year/2023 and/or possibly 2024 that subway/bus fares would increase past 2,75$ (where they’ve been since March 2015). State officials/MTA’s board are saying the agency’s lacking money, so they may aim to bring it up to 3$-3,50$ (or more) per ride, but time will tell given the cost of everything else in the city’s going up.

Sweat is not considered a bodily fluid. See: It doesn't really transmit disease. And since you'd be thrifting in person -- on the very off chance that somebody has sweat enough into a garment to smell without cleaning it, you'd be able to smell before you bought.

I have to pay for parking by the MNR anyway. It’s $15 a day, and they’re out of permits. MNR is $9.2 each way with the 20-ticket pass, and I have to pay 2.75 for the subway from GCT to Hudson Yards. So, it costs me about $39 per day I commute (I come a few times per week).

I want to come to the office more often, so I feel like getting monthly parking in upper manhattan could be worth it, if it’s like $300/mo? I would definitely skip the tolls, and only have to pay $5.5 for the subway.
