Swimming pools in New York

I'm staying in New York for several weeks later this month, and want to keep up a regular exercise routine while I'm there. Can anyone recommend a swimming pool, preferably in the Upper East Side, that I could join per day or per week? I don't need anything fancy, just a quiet pool where I can do some lap swimming for 40 minutes or so without getting in anyone's way. [more inside]

Move from Upstate NY to Austin, TX?

I have the potential for a job in Austin, TX. I live in upstate NY. I have never been to Texas (other than a layover in Houston) and never lived outside of NY state. How different is the cost of living? Is the culture clash going to be overwhelming? Am I crazy to even consider this?

Help me stop this car alarm and get some sleep!

Details: I live in a very industrial part of Brooklyn - so not many neighbors around. This guy that lives in the building next to ours has a tricked-out car with an alarm that goes off EVERY HOUR OR SO (it has an automatic shut-off after about a minute). He's usually home and parked from midnight to 11AM - so basically we get woken up EVERY HOUR OR SO. We've left notes, called 311, talked to him (he's SHOCKINGLY non-responsive and doesn't give a shit), and thrown eggs (which seems to have just made him more angry and confrontational, rather than get him to park elsewhere). None of this seems to have any affect. I am a light sleeper anyway so earplugs and white noise don't work. What I would like to know is if anyone in NYC has ever had any success in stopping this sort of douche. Have you ever gotten police to do anything? Does 311 work? Any other non-violent suggestions?

Best bike route through midtown manhattan?

What's the best way to get across midtown Manhattan by bicycle? Looking at bike maps of the city, it seems there's no bike lanes going East-West between the lower 20s and wayy up in 90th St (on the east side) and 77th St (on the west side) Assuming I want to get across town by travelling in the 50s (or reasonably close to that), which street(s) should I take for the safest, least traffic-rife ride?

Where should I have my birthday drinks?

I'm having birthday drinks in a few weeks and am looking for a lower Manhattan bar that tends to attract a crowd of people in their mid-20s and older. I'm not interested in dive bars, extremely upscale bars or bars with DJs/musical acts. Just a relaxed venue for me and my friends to spend a few hours on a Saturday night. Ideally, the bar should be below 14th St. Any suggestions?
