Neighborhood Chat / Paint the plaza

Do you have any extra paint cans laying around and want to put them to use? Email me

Sometime after this site is long gone, I am going to organize an event painting the grates in diversity plaza to make it look great again. (help me with some puns or naming). I'm going to wait for a warm Sunday to do it though, so either January is out or it's short notice.

Just wanted to grab some eyes here before it's all over for JHL.

bon voyage Todd et al


Yeah it's a lot of work! Thank you to the crew who maintained JHL throughout the years

Hello all,
Unfortunately, I have decided not to go ahead with the Jackson Heights IRL website due to my current workload.
I hope we can continue to connect with each other on:
Reddit: r/jacksonheights or r/queens and the JHfamilies group on Google

Thank you so much for creating and maintaining this site. It has led to so many inspirations, really made my life better and more passionate. It is going to be hard to get it out of my muscle memory to check it in my free moments. Thanks again, I wish you the best.

I heard it was same owners as la Abunduncia. This is totally unconfirmed and this is just a message board so i don't feel so bad spreading hearsay. Can anyone confirm?

Hey all, Momo Crawl is back on

Here is some info:

Celebrate the Himalayan Heights at Momo Crawl 2021!
* $5 Momo Maps to participate
* $1 Momos
* Dance performances
* Free Momo Trolley rides
* Free vintage NYC taxi rides from Famous Fat Dave
* Free Momo Pedicab rides
* Free Momo Facepainting from ArtofAnjana
* Vote and march to the winner to award the championship belt
**** and more ****
It started out as 32 friends trying to eat every momo and has since turned into an eating experience and arts festival promoting local entrepreneurship and Himalayan x NYC culture. All proceeds go back to the neighborhood and pay for creating an awesome experience at the Momo Crawl.
Participants pay $5 for a Momo Map then buy individual momos at momo shops and restaurants for $1 each. At the center, we have music, dance, art, and an interactive voting experience. At 5pm, we count the votes and march the championship belt made from yak hide adorned with a rock from the top of Mount Everest to the winner. Seriously.

Restaurants & Food / Re: Best lunch deals in Jackson Heights?

Sompong Thai on 83rd St.: lunch special is $8.95, includes a spring roll + soup, salad or soda. There's a choice of about a dozen entrees. Before the pandemic, they'd give 10% off if you paid cash; don't know if that's still a policy.

Maharaja on 37th Ave. bw 73rd & 74th has an $8.99 "thali," which is the meal served in a metal tray with multiple sections, filled with, say, a curry, vegetable, dal, rice, chutney, etc. I think it includes bread and a dessert too.

I LOVE the mahjaraja thali. Yes, it comes with roti or naan and galub jamun or another sweet. great deal.

same owners though. The brothers have had an amazing career and apparently had to pivot during coronavirus

Khao Kang basically is always a lunch special with perfect portions for me. I feel like a lot of the thai lunches aren't totally worth it.

Soooo many colombian and ecuadoran places have great lunch specials. My favorite is Organic Juice and Coffee on 82nd, below Roosevelt. They have either salmon or turkey wing and your choice of salads for $12 or so. I feel good that it's healthy
