Detective/Mystery Novels in Current Day New York?

A little while back I stumbled upon a detective novel (Losers Live Longer) that takes place in 2009 NYC and utilizes actual city streets, restaurants, bars, etc. The writing was pretty average, but the book kept me constantly aware of the protagonist's location (oftentimes cross-streets). The real-world geography of areas I knew well really sucked me into the world and engaged me on another level than the narrative alone. Are there any other good detective or mystery novels that use post-2000s (or, better yet, post-2010) New York accurately? [more inside]

Pizza in Brooklyn?

I'll be in Brooklyn next week for work staying at the Brooklyn Bridge Marriott and I'm looking for a great local place to get a slice. This is the one food I crave the most and I just can't find any great pizza here in Central Florida. So please help me out and tell me where to get a great slice! Not just classic NYC style either, I'm open to any style.

Brooklyn restaurant for one-on-one business meeting

I am a free-lance bookkeeper seeking new clients. I would like to meet prospects at a Brooklyn restaurant. Ideally it would be moderately priced, available for lunch or dinner, quiet, well-lit and have wi-fi access. Anything that has 4 out of those 5 would be super, and anyplace with all of them is superb.

Have you ever used a laundry pick-up/delivery service in Brooklyn?

Laundry is a major scourge in my life. It occurs to me that there are services that pick up and drop off your laundry. How…do those work? What sort of bag do I need to put my stuff in? How risky is it, i.e., what is the likelihood something will get lost or damaged? Most importantly, is there a service you can recommend in the Prospect Heights/Park Slope area?

While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping...

I need to drive from Prospect Heights to JFK around 5 AM on a weekday. I'm not a very confident highway driver anyway, and Google Maps suggests that the most logical route is to take Atlantic Ave all the way east to South Conduit, then straight down to the airport. I've done a variation on this route before and it makes sense and I feel comfortable with it. Except... [more inside]

Vegetarian-friendly restaurant in Brooklyn/Manhattan on short notice?

My dad and cousin are visiting tomorrow— what's a good vegetarian-friendly restaurant in Brooklyn or Manhattan where we could get a table for three around 7pm today on short notice? It should be pretty nice and quiet. Dirt Candy would be perfect, but it looks like we're too late to get a table for tonight.
