Men's Tailor on the UWS of Manhattan.

Need recommendation for a tailor on or near the UWS of Manhattan, NYC . Standard stuff, mostly altering off the rack shirts, pants, and jackets, nothing too extreme but should be familiar with vintage and custom-mades. Would prefer quality over speed or cost.

Where should a nature lover and illustrator move to?

I am in the process of moving from my abusive family's house/city to another city with the wages I have saved over the past few years, but I have been unable to choose a city. It would ideally be affordable, and have a supportive environment for artists/illustrators with natural beauty and publishing opportunities. Do any cities come to mind? Any help would be very much appreciated! [more inside]

We own a coop apartment with unused space adjoining the unit which we'd like to try to purchase and combine with our unit as a patio. Looking for advice from anyone who has been down a similar road before to help us get our head around the process (convincing the board, establishing a fair valuation, navigating DOB/Landmarks, financing), pitfalls to watch out for, etc. [more inside]

What did we witness happening yesterday morning in Chinatown?

What did we witness happening yesterday morning in Chinatown? We were walking down Pell St. at about 10:30 am, when I noticed a large crowd huddled around one of the storefronts. It was about 20 people, all of whom looked to be locals, most if not all of them older folks. [more inside]

Looking for a printer in Manhattan

Looking for a solid, reliable printer in midtown Manhattan (preferably). I'm designing a program for a memorial service that will be taking place there next month but I'm located out of town and don't have any NYC designer contacts. The files will be ready well in advance so we won't need superquick turnaround. Can the hivemind recommend anyone? Thanks!

"Pigeon" "Roach" and "Rat" are right out

A New York client has asked for a group of names (3 to 6) with which to market some high-end luxury residences in Midtown. The previous theme was "theater" and they'd like something different. The residences are 30+ floors up. Unfortunately the setting is pretty sleek and anonymous. I haven't been to the city in a year and without a theme, my creative fu is completely failing. (Once I have that, the individual names will probably come.) Perhaps you have some ideas? Many thanks.

I need a quiet place in mid-town NYC to have a phone interview.

I got the interview! But I don't have a private area at my current job to take the phone call. Can anyone recommend somewhere within a 10-minute walk from 39th Street at 8th Ave where I could count on quiet and good cell phone reception? I'd be willing to pay for it if I have to, though not what a Times Square hotel room would cost.

MORE LIKE Lucille Lortel, please

Dear NYC-Hive: Visiting in Feb and would like to find listings of theatres whose offerings are like Lucille Lortel Theater in the Village. Would prefer Manhattan locations (over other boroughs). They just did "Volpone" and are doing "She Stoops to Conquer" soon. But they also do new works as well. What are similar theaters? And bonus points if you can give me a link to calendar/listings.

Copyright status of publications created by the city of New York

What is the copyright status of works created by the New York City government? Specifically works created by the Department of Health or similar agencies, concerning vital statistics and similar public data? (That is, indices to vital records but not actual vital records, which are protected by privacy restrictions.) Does it make a difference if the records and books were published more than 50 years ago? 40 years ago?

Please walk me through the logistics and help me devise a plan, as well as offer any advice you have on making it on your own in a new city (essentially, how to be an independent, self-sufficient adult).
