Hi neighbors,

I live on 19th Street south of Park Slope and am trying to find an internet service provider. I previously had Time Warner but had major issues with spotty service and, of course, terrible customer service that never resolved the issues. I have checked with both Verizon and Comcast and both say they can/do not provide service to my area “because Time Warner controls that area.”
Does anyone have any experience with this or have any suggestions as to a different provider? Or can it be true that Time Warner really holds a monopoly? Is this legal?

Thanks for any help/comments!

lm looking to purchase a dual condensing boiler for space reasons.
Its a 1bdr with 1 bath ( no bathtub only shower) kitchen and laundry room.
I’ve been suggested several brands and models:
Embassy onex, Rinnai, Bosch, Triangle tube excellence. There are so many out there. Would anyone recommend one over the other?
I was thinking the Embassy Onex as it is cheaper but also want a good machine.
Any recommendations?

Hi,
Just looked at a house with a very old oil boiler. Can anyone tell me anything about replacing it and/or converting to gas? The broker suggested that the gas company would give us a boiler as an incentive to convert — REALLY?? That doesn’t sound plausible to me . . .

How difficult/pricey is a conversion, and what does new boiler generally cost?

Thanks very much, I’ve been in an apartment for my entire adult life so I have very little idea about these things . . .

Our condo has had an application in to the DEP for a new water service for a laundry room since November. Supposedly we have one of the best expediters working on this but how long should this process take? We haven’t even been notified of a date for the installation.
