Please state your 'I Lived In NYC' credentials:

I moved to NYC from the Philippines in 1996 and have lived there since then. Moved several times within Queens - Forest Hills, Briarwood, Glendale and Woodside. Worked in the city, Forest Hills and Long Island City. If you are a New Yorker, you know that there is a large, imposing Citi building overlooking midtown and the western side of Queens - if you do, I worked there. :) Also finished college in NY - I'm a CUNY child, Queens College specifically and finished my graduate studies at Columbia University. I do miss the city especially the lovely aroma of the subway in the middle of the summer and the tourists gawking at buildings in midtown.. :)

Hmmm...just to be sure, please tell us what 'Zabars' is:

Isn't Zabar's an upscale kosher store/grocery on 80th and Broadway?

OK, fine. When did you come out here? Why?

My name is Hazel and I currently reside in the East Bay at Emeryville. I left Queens, NY about a month ago - my home for 16 years. Would love to join this group and meet other Expat New Yorkers and possibly meet new friends!
