    Christ Almighty you're coming here? And for spring break? This place sucks the big one. Anyway if you're looking for a good gym there is Gold's Gym in Garden City Park, there is a lot over there and thats where I train. Now I'm sorry you said dont ask why but I have to. Why? LI this place is lame as can be.

    I know, I know Long Island sucks a big one but my girlfriend is from Baldwin, and we have the same Spring Break and she just wants me to come visit. I know it sounds like a huge bitch thing to do (and it is) but why not?!

    I trained once before at the Powerhouse Gym in Baldwin (I think) and it took an act of God before they decided to let me train there. I definitly will go to Golds in Garden if no one else has any suggestions.

    This my be a little far off but there's a new gym in Middle Village and it is off-da-hook. Serious powerlifting and BB gym all the way. All the things powerlifters need - dumbells up to 200lbs etc. I'll get more info if you're interested. I'm not gonna touch the Spring Break thing, lol!

    Well if you're girl is living in Baldwin you should find a gym close to you. Middle Village is in the city and if you want to go to the city to go to the gym everyday then be my guest. Even the one in garden city park is like 20 minutes and thats on long island.

    I am going to be in the City for the first part of the trip so i will definitely go check out that gym. **** paying the 15 some odd dollars for the LIRR. If no one else recommends anything else, i will also definitely check out Golds in Garden.

    PS What about a place to eat???

    Does carl own that place to? Tell him to get a new haircut. There are a few owners at Gold's........another dude looks like he's in the sicilian mafia and sleeps on a tanning bed. Go to the one I go to and check it out............and get me a job cuz I'm tired of bouncing.

    Yeah Glenn thats his name. Yeah even in the gym I go to he never associates with anyone really. He's an oddball usually sporting a blazer and jeans......the zack morris look. I gotta say I really like Gold's it's a great gym and it's got everything.....I just wish it was open later....like say right now cuz I always get so pumped at this time. It's a place I'd def work at but i think they had only a babysitter opening for the day care and I'm no babysitter. Only thing that sucks about the Gold's I go to is there are really no hot girls there and Tera Patrick was in there last week but she never came back.

    I hate Long Island more than anything. I despise waking up everyday and realizing I'm here. The only good thing is NYC is right here. But if you want to party there every night you better take out a loan and sell your kids cuz 7 bucks for a corona gets on my nerves.

    Why the phuck don't you move off the island and come out west where its warm here 360 days out of the year and corona's cost 1.50 (MAX)!

    What i really hate and don't understand about long island (besides its ugly as sin) is you drive two blocks and your in another city/town!!! Really...what the phuck!!!

    Yea that is where it is going to be........over the summer they said it would be open and running by January 1st! They sent a letter out around December 15th stating that it was pushed back till April 1st!!! That is total BS I drove by there the other day and the place has nothing done inside the outside is the only thing that is finished......I am guessing they will not be open till around July/August time frame.

    She does have a point.....it's incredibly hard to live here and I can't see myself buying a house here because it's just way to expensive and difficult. Taxes are unbelievable and so are the prices for everything. You can make 75-80 grand a year and still have a tough time making ends meet. To live comfortably you and your spouse have to make a combined income of like 150 grand and even then you still will be budgeting. Ask my parents they fit in that demographic but we are in no way rich or even slightly wealthy.

    Yeah but the competition here for jobs is extremely fierce. Thats what i hate. In all honesty I think NYC is the best city in the world and i love it to death but I would leave it in a second if it made me that much happier cuz right now i'm as depressed as can be living here.
