Are you getting swayed by a brand new luxury building in LIC? I’m getting IG ads for them alllll the time. Open up Google Street view for the real neighborhood.

I like it here. Used to live off the 36 ave station, now off Broadway, which is only 3 blocks down. If you move closer to Broadway there are more restaurants. The distance is negligible either way.

It’s mainly Latin American. Best arepas in NYC are there at Arepas Cafe a couple blocks north of 31st Street. Quiet area and quickly gentrifying. Most of Astoria is safe.

I will soon be joining Google and expected to relocate to Bay Area. I am excited for the opportunity but not excited about the relocation. So few questions:
1. How practical it is to hope for a remote team a year later. Is it easy to move teams to relocate back to home base?
2. Where do Googlers live if they work in Sunnyvale office. Asking for both short term rent and long term buy should I decide to make the relocation permanent. Google

How do you know when you’ve crossed the line of being “blunt”… where you’re too direct in a mean way?

I’m a senior with 7 years of public accounting experience of which 5 years in audit. I’m currently a senior without a cpa (in process). I’m getting promoted this month but I’m ready to make a move. I have two calls scheduled this week with recruiters from Big 4. Any advice? One thing I always worried about is being asked for my transcripts.

I just saw what appeared to be a hot yoga class being taken inside an outdoor dining set up at a local restaurant. They had clear tarps covering the side that would normally be “open air” (ie it was fully enclosed) and additional space heaters running.

I don’t really care what they do but I just had a “c’mon maaaaan” moment. How is this different then doing it inside a yoga studio???
