Nothing can be more difficult than loosing a loved one. It is very consoling to have a funeral director who is sensitive and helpful and can handle all the details without causing more pain. I have used Koch funeral home when one of my parents died and they helped take care of everything, from choosing the dates and hours of the viewing, to the funeral details. I was too upset to know what to do and they understood and didn't take advantage, they helped me in every way and made this difficult time so much easier for me. Kind and throughful and they know what they are doing.
PROS: Caring and Professional
One of only two car services I would recommend in Queens and NYC. I relied on Lindy's often to take me home from NYC late at night (they were always on time), to get me to an airport or train station, or wherever I had to go and couldn't drive myself. Much easier than public transportation and not all that much more costly, they take you door to door. A pleasant ride and always there when you need them. Keep their number in your wallet on on your wall.
This car service is a staple in Queens. Whenever you need to rely on a car service to get you to an airport, and appointment, or anyplace you need to go, in good or poor weather, call Four Ones. Their number is easy to remember..they always pick up their phone..they are there when you need them..and they get you where you need to go on time and without incident. A permanent number to your important phone number list. I always relied on them to get me to the airport on time (and to pick you up there too). Reliable and not too pricey.
When I graduated from high school I was not sure if I wanted to attend college but was also very young. So I agreed to go to LaGuardia CC to study business and get two years of college before entering the workplace. This school is great if you want to find out what working is all about. Their internships in some great companies help prepare you and gets you real and needed experience. I don't think their curriculum is tough or challenging, but their credits did count for transfer to other 4 year colleges and nothing can beat the work experience I got. I actually ended up getting a full time job later in one of the companies knowing what it was all about and having worked their in interships previously. For anyone not sure if they want to go to school or who are not up to the heavy study and school challenges of a 4 year college, I highly recommend this school. It will give you college credits, experience, and some excellent job skills and experience.
PROS: Opportunities for Career Internships
CONS: Curriculum compared to univiversities
Not everyone can purchase a brand new car but if you want the quality of a new car with the service you'd get from buying a new car, and many of the same service-type agreements...then I suggest Meyer Chevrolet. They have a large inventory. My family has purchased several cars here and have all been very happy. The cars lasted a long, long time. There were never any problems or disappointments. They offered service agreements and were always available for routine service on the car. I'm not sure I'd look anywhere else after knowing what great service I get here. Conveniently located to all boroughs, this is a great place to purchase a car.
PROS: Service and Quality
Whether it is your acoustic or electric guitar (mine was electric) this is the place to go for repairs. I first brought my (older) guitar in to a chain music store but did not get good results. A friend told me about Bob's Repair Hospital. They are experts. They did a great job and the repair is lasting and lasting. It didn't take long and the job was well worth the cost. They will be the first place for all and any repair works needed in the future.
PROS: Great service and guitar repairs
This store offers lots of pretty and decorative items for your home. If you love candles, you need to stop here. They have a good selection -- in every scent, size, color, and shape. The store has a great display that makes the items both attactive and appealing -- and it is very hard to pass up picking up a few extra items. Candles are great whether to decorate your home or for gifts. The staff was very friendly too.
PROS: Great candle selection
They have it all (just like their commercial says)..from dolls, to toys, to legos and on and on. It is one of the most fun places to shop. You'll not only find toys you want, but you'll want to play with it all and get much more than you want. The staff is friendly. The selection is great. This is truly one of the best and most fun places to shop but be careful if the kids are with you...you'll spend a great deal more time here than you planned too.
PROS: Great toy selection.
This store has a great selection. They had kites from cheap to more expensive; crafts items, models, and more. I came particularly for a kite and found one that was better priced than similar ones looked at elsewhere. The staff seemed very pleasant and let me browse around which after, or course, I found quite a few more items. Convenient hours, friendly atmosphere, and a good selection of items for every hobby--I can't think of anything I'd want that they could take care of.
PROS: Selection and pleasant atmosphere
I had my child go here for summer instruction and he not only learned a great deal but grew to really love the sport. The instructors were great working with children. They make it fun for them too. The staff knows what kids like. They want to learn skills but they want to play also. And a little competition with awards (paper or whatever) is just the encouragement they need. I am going to sign up again this coming summer and know that it will be great.
PROS: Great with kids and baseball instruction
