What are the best secret/hidden spots in New York City to check out?
I'm not a New Yorker, but I visit this city enough to not be called a "tourist". I'm not sure if this place has been mentioned before, but there's a huge segment of the Berlin Wall in a small park on 53rd St between 5th and Madison Ave.The Cloisters is a museum on the West Side located way up near 190th St. It features a large part of John Rockefeller's medieval art collection and features around 1,900 different exhibits. It is not a "secret" per se, but definitely worth a visit, if only to see the scenery of the Hudson and surrounding area (George Washington Bridge etc). I felt like I was somewhere in Europe while I was there yesterday. It is not on the typical tourist's map, which makes it better since its away from all the hustle. Prosperity Dumpling, ChinatownWith 1,200 reviews on Yelp, this place is definitely not a secret, but I doubt non-New Yorkers would know of this place. It is a hole-in-the-wall located in the heart of Chinatown, and serves delicious pork and chives dumplings at an extremely inexpensive price of $1.00 for 5 of them. My personal favorite is the Chicken Sesame Pancake, which costs around $2.50 per pancake. They also sell dumplings in bulk, which I imagine is at a cheaper per-unit rate than the retail price of 12.5¢ per dumpling. Its a great place to go to when you don't feel like spending 10 bucks on a lunch in NYC. DUMBO in Brooklyn (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass, right near the Brooklyn Bridge) features one of the most beautiful views of Manhattan, and is a great place to walk around and explore for those who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan The "real" Halal Guys cart (53rd and 6th) only comes after 8pm. The others are just knock-offs.Even though tickets are sold out months in advance, you can become a part of the Saturday Night Live studio audience if you're willing to go to 30 Rockefeller at 7am for standby tickets. If you reach there in time, you will most probably be able to become a part of the studio audience.The Jersey City Waterfront features some of the most spectacular views of the Manhattan skylineBelvedere Castle in Central Park (mid-park at 79th st) has an observation deck which offers beautiful views of Central Park and Manhattan. Speaking of Central Park, Strawberry Fields is John Lennon's memorial spread over 2.5 acres I haven't done this yet, but "Shakespeare In The Park" in the Delacorte Theater in Central Park is quite an experience. It is a free presentation of some of Shakespeare's most famous plays. It runs in the months of June and July every year. Best part is that tickets are free and are distributed on a first-come-first-serve basis.Shakespeare in the Park's performance of Romeo and Juliet Ice cream, milkshake and milk flavored like the milk that remains after you eat Kelloggs cereal, only at Momofuku Milk Bar in East Village (and other locations!)milkbarstore.comSeven Hills Cafe at 849 Manhattan Ave, Brooklyn serves the best hookah in New York City. Priced at only $10 per hookah (with the $5 Yelp check-in coupon), it features every imaginable flavor, great service (albeit a little slow) and lip-smackingly amazing Turkish and Lebanese food. That's all I can think of for now. I'll add more "secrets" as and when they come to mind.
What are some must sees or dos when in New York City to fill out a two day itinerary?
Get yourself Metrocards. They work in the Subways and on the buses. Each ride is about $2.75. However, you can transfer from bus to subway, bus to bus, Subway to Subway, or Subway to bus for free.When I take people around for two days, I typically start with the Statue of Liberty. First boat goes out at 8:30 a m. Do not talk to sidewalk ticket agents. At best, they will sell you the $19 ticket for $25, with a commission. At worst, thousands last year paid for boat trips that did not go to the Statue of Liberty, after being told by street ticket agents that it would.From the statue, it's a short walk to either the financial district or World Trade Center Memorial. (We don't call it Ground Zero anymore.)After that, I walk over the Brooklyn Bridge to Brooklyn Heights, with its beautiful 150-year-old houses, including those that housed Arthur Miller, Norman Mailer, Truman Capote and WH Auden. Stop at the Brooklyn Heights Promenade with a 15 km or 10 Mile view of the city and the harbor.This takes us to lunch the first day.Contact me if you want to learn the rest of this two-day itinerary. I'm always looking for another day of work!
How do you subpoena a witness who resides in New York to testify in an out-of-state proceeding?
The Uniform Act to Secure the Attendance of Witnesses from Without a State in Criminal Proceedings was completed in 1936. The act provides states with statutory authority to secure the attendance of a witness from without the state in which the criminal proceeding or grand jury proceeding is pending. In New York, the act is codified in Article 640 of the Criminal Procedure Law. Specifically, CPL 640.10(2) states, in pertinent part: If a judge of a court in any state which by its laws has made provision for commanding persons within that state to attend and testify in [New York] certifies under the seal of such court that there is a criminal prosecution pending in such court, or that a grand jury investigation has commenced or is about to commence, that a person being within [New York] is a material witness in such prosecution, or grand jury investigation, and that his presence will be required for a specified number of days, upon presentation of such certificate to a justice of the supreme court or a county judge in the county in which such person is, such justice or judge shall fix a time and place for a hearing, and shall make an order directing the witness to appear at a time and place certain for the hearing. If at such hearing the justice or judge determines that the witness is material and necessary, that it will not cause undue hardship to the witness to be compelled to attend and testify in the prosecution or a grand jury investigation in the other state, and that the laws of the state in which the prosecution is pending, or grand jury investigation has commenced or is about to commence, will give to him protection from arrest and the service of civil and criminal process, he shall issue a subpoena, with a copy of the certificate attached, directing the witness to attend and testify in the court where the prosecution is pending, or where a grand jury investigation has commenced or is about to commence at a time and place specified in the subpoena. . . . In layman's terms, if an out-of-state attorney wishes to subpoena a witness who resides in New York to testify in an out-of-state criminal proceeding, said attorney must persuade a judge in the subpoenaing jurisdiction to certify, under seal, that (1) there is a criminal prosecution pending in that jurisdiction's court, or that a grand jury investigation has commenced or is about to commence, (2) that said witness is a material witness in any such proceeding, and (3) that the witness's presence will be needed for X amount of days. Upon clearing that step, the out-of-state attorney (presuming they are not admitted to practice in New York) will need to forward the original certified papers to an attorney licensed in New York in order to present "such certificate to a justice of the supreme court or a county judge in the county in which such person is." That to say, if the witness resides in Manhattan, the certifying papers must be submitted before a supreme court justice seated in New York County. Included with the certifying papers from the subpoenaing jurisdiction must be an order to show cause submitted by the attorney licensed to practice in New York. To the extent that the order to show cause is signed by a qualifying justice, the order along with the certifying papers must then be personally served upon the witness.Upon service, the witness may either make arrangements with the out-of-state attorney to travel to the out-of-state criminal proceeding (the out-of-state attorney should be prepared to pay for the witness's travel and lodging costs) , or, the witness may move to quash the subpoena on the return date set forth in the order to show cause. Generally, a motion to quash will be founded upon the hardship provision set forth in CPL 640.10(2). To that end, the Court of Appeals has illustratively interpreted what constitutes a hardship in the cases of Matter of Codey [Capital Cities, Am. Broadcasting Corp.], 82 N.Y.2d 521 (1993), and Matter of Holmes, 22 N.Y.3d 300 (2013).In sum, subpoenaing a witness who resides in New York to testify in an out-of-state criminal proceeding is a straightforward process guided by Article 640 of New York's Criminal Procedure Law. To the extent that legal assistance is needed in subpoenaing a witness under this article, please do not hesitate to contact The Law Office of Phillip Hamilton, PLLC @www.philliphamiltonlaw.com.
Do you need a rental license to rent out a home in New York state?
You can be a landlord without getting a real estate license, but business licenses are another matter. The rules for small businesses vary from city to city and county to county, but many local governments require local businesses take out a license. In 2011, for example, Salt Lake City passed a rule specifying that a landlord has to get a business license, even if she only rents out a single property.In addition a personal license, you may have to register the property as well. In Destin, Florida, for example, you must give the city your name, address and the address of the property. You also provide the name and number of your rental agent if you're not managing the place yourself. You have to guarantee that someone will be available by phone 24/7 to respond to complaints or problems such as squeezing in more tenants than the zoning allows.For information hire an real estate advisor
How will traffic on the Cross Island Parkway and Belt Parkway be impacted by the New York Islanders arena in Elmont, NY?
The Belt parkway not so much as the vast majority of the NY Islanders fans are still found in Nassau and Suffolk counties.The Cross Island will likely see bottlenecks on game nights at the beginning of the games (faceoff times around 7:00 PM to 7:30PM) on weeknights. Saturday evening game start times less so, and Sunday afternoon games likely similar bottlenecks.But since the new arena will likely not hold that many people (likely somewhere between 15,000 and 18,000 ), the duration of the impact will be limited. Also, if people decide to look for food in the surrounding communities prior to the game that could spread out any congestion.However, some of that congestion may also be mitigated by any trains set up by the LIRR to the game. I’m not familiar with the lines to and from Belmont, so don’t know which lines and how many fans might make use of them.Post game time you will see some increase in traffic for an exit or two for about 30 minutes after the game, but since the games end between 10PM and 10:30PM, the traffic flow on the Cross Island will be light to empty on weeknights.Update with some real world driving. Going from the LIE southbound on the Cross Island heading south to JFK airport at 8:30pm on a Thursday night. Traffic was heavy, not bumper to bumper, but tight rows in all three lanes with speeds around 40 miles an hour consistently. The return trip northbound from JFK 9:30, had traffic, but normal highway speeds of around 50 to 55mphAnother northbound run from JFK to the LIE, at around 10pm to 10:30pm on a Tuesday night wide open, with speeds up to 65mph, light traffic.
