I want to get mocked as much as the coppers!

You know those three-wheeled scooter trucks that the NYPD uses? What are they called, where can I buy one and how much do they cost? I've seen several stripped of their livery and apparently in civilian use in Brooklyn. Do they get sold at surplus auctions?

Moving from the Midwest to NYC. Help!

I'm trying to make a big decision about a big change in my life. If all goes well, I could be going from working at a giant corporation and living in the midwest to joining a small internet start-up in NYC. What questions should I be asking the start-up? And I know cost of living in NYC is high. I'm looking at tripling my rent--at least! How much do I need to earn to be comfortable, with money in my pocket and in savings?

where to sleep in the city that never sleeps

Hotel recommendations needed for NYC. Ideally downtown. Not crazy expensive, but it's for my parents, so it needs to be fancier than a backpacker's hotel/hostel (eg, private bath, not too noisy, clean, etc). Many thanks!
