I should know by now that any place within a one mile radius of Times Square is going to be bad - let's face it - they don't have to win repeat customers due to the huge amounts of tourists. The ride is nauseating, the atmosphere gloomy and dark and the food is absolutely terrible. The prices are out of this world (no pun intended) and on my way out, I saw a rat. Trust me - go elsewhere with the kids.
I have been going to Franks since I was a kid and they continue to provide competative prices and great hobby advice to this day. They are always one on one and friendly. There hobby selection is great with RC cars, airplanes, and boats.
This school has top notch education comparable to any major university. Credits are transfered easily to the Arizona universities. The social atmosophere is pretty cool and there are many events and clubs. The campus is tidy and located conveniently off the 101 freeway.
This community college is a wonderful introduction to a major university and there are no major obstacles in transfering your credits to any of the Arizona universities. On another positive note it is inexpensive, but in the end you get what you pay for. It can be hit and miss with some courses so I recommend contacting a current student if possible before committing to any of the classes.
This is a great venue to see bands both local and popular bands. It is also a great place to just hang out at when you are in Tempe. I have also been to this place when Big Bad Voo Doo Daddy was in town and took in some swing dancing. The venue is right off of Mill avenue which is a big party street by Arizona State University. The one drawback I see to the venue is that sometime they can be overpriced.
This store has a bunch of rare albums and vinyls. There is a huge selection of dvds and cds. The store also has a lot of information about local bands and events going on in the community, and the decor itself has a cool vibe to it. Sometimes the bands will come in and sign CDs on special days. I've also sold back CDs to them and gotten Zia dollars or cash.
I had my wisdom teeth taken out by Dr. Goldenstein. The staff was helpful and informative and the office is clean and comfortable. I was knocked out for the procedure of course so it seemed pretty quick. After the procedure the doctor called my house to see if I was doing alright which I thought was nice.
For lack of better alternatives in the neighborhood, this rat trap posing as a supermarket remains in business. The selection is severly limited, the current inventory looks like it has been there for months and the produce is unapproachable. It takes one heck of an immune system to be able to stay healthy after buying groceries here.
This is a great copy shop. It is clean, fast and never crowded. You can get what you need and get out. The people that work there are helpful too at least they were when I lived in Provo and needed all kinds of copying services for various projects. Sometimes the copiers in front are broken but not too often.
This Hertz is located in an unassuming gas station in Englewood, about 5 miles across the GW Bridge from Manhattan. The prices to rent a car here are about half what it costs in Manhattan, so it is advantageous to rent there and take a bus over the bridge to pick it up. Dropping it off is another story. The staff generally isn't too much a problem but bear in mind that you do have to be 25 to rent.
