Joe, you posted a "street corner in Flatbush" within the last day or two. Is that Avenue D?

I don’t remember, to be honest.  I know that it was Flatbush, and it was along Bedford Avenue (I think).

"Nyro was a legendary 60s and 70s songwriter. Finally she gets the tribute she deserves."

That’s what’s in the article. Anyone who has never listened to her needs to. Laura Nyro was immensely talented singer and songwriter. It was a huge tragedy to lose her at such a young age.

My boyfriend and I are planning to move to NYC in about 18 months (gotta save up). We currently love in Salt Lake City, Utah (not Mormon). Where's a good, safe place to get a larger apartment? Like around $2500-$3000/mo rent? Cause I'm clueless as to what neighborhoods are good. The more space, the better!

I would suggest that you check the internet editions of the local papers and their real estate sections.  What’s hot now might not be in 18 months (and vice versa).  The point has been made lately that parts of Brooklyn are more expensive than parts of Manhattan.  You should look at all of the boroughs.
