Two Week Anniversary!

Hooray! We’ve made it to two weeks! And they said it wouldn’t last. 🙂

Yes, it’s true, two weeks ago I launched this blog. I am pleased with the response so far – more and more people seem to be finding their way through the vastness of the Internet to the Edge of the City each and every day.  That’s good for my blog, but I really hope it’s good for Forest Hills. If you take a look around you will see that I am trying to make this a place that celebrates what our neighborhood has to offer. I hope it is evolving more and more every day into a little spot on the Web where you can turn for information that will make living here in Forest Hills that much more enjoyable. Or maybe just a place to relax for a few minutes during your hectic day (in the air conditioning, lots of air conditioning!).

As a special little anniversary gift to my readers I thought I would share with you a few factoids I have learned in the past two weeks from writing this blog.

  1. Many people are interested in that abandoned construction site next to the Bukharian Jewish Center on 70th Ave. that is now up for sale. That post has generated hits from near and very far. I figure it’s either people looking to possibly buy it, people in the neighborhood curious about where the spot is, or maybe some long lost Bukharians looking to find their brethren, or a place to worship? http://wp.me/pXK56-4C
  2. And one reader requested I update everyone on the results of the latest poll we did, about what kind of establishment you’d all like to see come to Forest Hills. The write-ins as of today remain unchanged from the last time: Prime Steakhouse; None of the Above – need lots of parking for Fairway; A live music venue of any size and A good Italian restaurant. And the winner as of now is an upscale supermarket like Whole Foods or Fairway with 42 percent of the vote. The poll is still open if you haven’t voted:

Thanks to all those who have already voted and to those who have been brave enough to write some of the first comments on the blog over the past weeks. Keep ’em coming!

Best, Drake
