Yeah, I know. I had everything at my fingertips in Philly. I got spoiled. The good news is that I get to cook more which I love to do.

And, btw, what's up with all these guys sporting mustaches like from the 70s? I swear this place is like in a time warp except with more vacant strip malls.

Yea I'm cooking more these days as well. Less money and im a pretty damn good cook.

Lmao. I did notice more mustaches around here. I guess the look is back in style now. Better than all these man buns I've been seeing. When you see a good Tom Selleck mustache you have to appreciate it.

Mustaches, man buns? Sounds like Williamsburg from 2010 moved out to LI.
I'm in LI too, luckily I haven't seen many misplaced hipsters in my neighborhood. :noway:

It's the old men wearing the "law enforcement" or "fire department" stache. They all live out here. Massapequa Park, where I now reside (temporarily, I hope), is called "Cop Town."

I also like to live in mixed neighborhoods. That's definitely not Massapequa Park. :lol:

Brooklyn has the best, followed by ONLY certain parts of Queens then the same for Manhattan.

Aside from Luigi's, on the whole food in LI tends to suck. Sorry. :lol:
