I'm going to a wedding in New York City next month. I'm hoping to persuade my spouse to come, too; maybe I can even convince him that the city is not wall-to-wall skyscrapers. Is there a neat place in Brooklyn we should stay? The special requirement is that I want to be able to see friends who live pretty far south along the Q line (think Brighton Beach), so a neighborhood like Williamsburg is probably out. [more inside]

As I said in my last post, I'm packing up and hitting the road to travel the world for a year. I have a one bedroom apartment full of stuff in Brooklyn Heights, NY that I need to store. I'm going to try to pare down as much as possible, but I have nice furniture that I paid a good amount of money for and like, as well as art and books, much of which I want to keep. Having done some quick searching online, it definitely appears to make sense to store much of my furniture from my cost/benefit point of view, versus buying all new furniture at similar prices to what I previously spent when I get back. I'm looking for climate controlled storage for a large one bedroom worth of stuff, anywhere in the NYC area. [more inside]

I don't have a car, rail isn't running, busses leave from parts of the city that are extremely difficult to access and I'm not even sure I could get a ticket. Suggestions? Am I not thinking of something? [more inside]
