Anywhere in Manhattan bad when shelling out 3-5k for mediocre shoebox where folks generally not cool with Asians. But as young guy for bragging rights (God forbid to live close by work), guess anywhere in Manhattan is attractive!

Chinatown is literally in lower manhattan EY1

I’ve lived here for the last 10 years. Great neighborhood with fantastic subway access, great food (by the villages), easy grocery. Very safe, though USQ is the center of protests so it can be noisy. Neighborhood is filled with NYU kids which give it a very young vibe.

I am 29F and my boyfriend and I are planning to get married this year after 4 years of relationship. I am earning 14LPA and he's earning 12LPA. Our families are happy with our union. But all my female friends, who are married (arranged) keep saying negative things like people his age are earning close to 40LPA and he's not worth it. They also keep pointing out that he hasn't done higher studies. For me, none of this matters because I fell in love with him for who he is, not money. CONTD....

Hi all, at my work place we are struggling with tbe assessment stage, we are sending written tests to candidates in Word and ask them to send them back. Once we get them, we have to blind to avoid bias and then and send to assessors for scoring. Needless to say the administration process is a mess. I'm curious, anyone knows or uses a solution or program to take care of this or similar?
