Least inconvenient way to get into NYC if a car has to be parked somewhere

A friend and I are heading into NYC next weekend. We are coming from Montreal and driving across the border. However, after that, we haven't decided the best way to get into the city. Should we drive to Albany and take a bus from there? (Is there long term parking in Albany?) Should we drive into a suburb and take a train in? Should we drive into the city and find a lot? (I'd probably prefer to do one of the first two unless there is some reason to do the third.) [more inside]

Tax collectors crossing state lines?

My dad tells stories of New York tax collectors hanging out in the parking lots of popular New Jersey malls and Ikeas and the like, writing down NY plates and sending estimated sales tax bills or "reminders" for the voluntary portion of their bill. Is this real or apocryphal?

Cheap rent ANYWHERE on the East Coast

It's a bit of a wide net I'm casting here, but where's the biggest and/or nicest apartment I can rent for under $500 in fairly cool cities in the Eastern half of the USA? Say, anywhere east of (and including) Minnesota to Louisiana. I love NOLA, and I've liked everyone I've ever met from Minnesota... [more inside]

Cheap, public transit reachable parking in the outskirts of NYC. Is there such a thing?

I live in New York City. I own a car that I only need to use 2-3 times a month. Are there any low(er)-cost parking alternatives if you don't need constant access to the car? The ideal parking situation for me would be a garage with 24-hour access that would be reachable by public transit. Something way out there in Queens, Brooklyn or even Westchester. Is there such a thing?

Can anyone recommend any queer events/hangouts in New York City?

Can anyone recommend any queer events/hangouts in New York City? By "queer", I mean non-standard gender/sexuality and probably radical left politics. By "events", I mean DIY shows, potlucks, reading groups, screenings or whatever else. By "hangouts" I mean social centres, autonomous spaces, concert venues, cafes and bars.
