BKNY: Big Thailand taste by way of Bayside

BKNY Thai looks less like a quality restaurant, than it does a slightly disreputable nightclub. The view from the parking lot is overseen by a colorful graffiti-style mural of Bangkok. The dim, cavernous interior is dominated by a large u-shaped bar with plenty of large TVs. We came early, and wondered when the real party animals arrive. Comments (3).

The Play’s the Thing

Theater rats hit the gym and find camaraderie

I was never a gym guy, but some stints a few years ago led me to the Cardiac Health Center, a small workout facility run by New York Hospital Queens, where members of the mainly Medicare generation exercise to keep up with their grandchildren and all you other kids. It’s a friendly place, staffed by medical pros who look after your health and show you how to work the equipment, and frequented by a lot of interesting old-timers who have some good stories to tell.
