    Whenever I think of the Cloisters I think of this scene:

    Hi guys,

    Habs fan coming in peace. Been living in the city for about 6 months now and wondered where you think the best bars to watch the playoffs are? Google/reddit aren't overly helpful and I've been to Kelly's a few times but it's a bit of a dive. Any ideas would be great. Thanks in advance!

    I was born and raised here in NY and I've only been to the Cloisters once -- and I barely remember the visit. I do recall a number visits to Ft. Tryon Park. A shame since I grew up and live in the general area.

    Cloisters are a great place to spend an afternoon at.

    I'm born and raised in queens and if I did go it was on a school field trip that I don't remember (what a long bus ride that would be). I've been meaning to go but never got around to it.

    My favorite place to live. I don't care that all of my friends from below 14th St. & BK treat this place like it's 8,000 miles away.

    I think about moving downtown and BK and then I walk around here and I go "Nah."

    I would never live below 14th Street...especially "back in the day" -- closest I got was 24th & 9th in Chelsea.

    Oh man, I met a cop from the sixties one time and he was looking up and down like E6th street in a very nostalgic way, he turns to me and says: "40 years ago, it was buckets-a-blood down here.."

    Where do you live?

    I watched the entire 2014 playoffs at Windy City Ale House in Brooklyn. Yes, based on the name it’s Chicago sports-themed but it’s a great place.

    So, I want to take advantage of my new found freedom, especially this summer. Plus I have some close friends who are leaving the city. So I'm looking for meetups and other opportunities to participate in activities and meet people. I went on meetup.com and found this place. Any other suggestions?

    I don’t know if any of you are in industries even remotely related, but I figured I’d throw it out here since I’m networking and searching everywhere else:

    I separated from the military a little over a year ago. I struggled to find a good landing spot as it’s not as easy to translate military experience over the civilian sector as one might expect; you may be a capable “project manager” but if the military didn’t use Jira and other Atlassian software (often the case with the military as we develop our own platforms in house for use on secure networks) or you don’t have a PM certification (because the military works off of rank, etc) then it’s still difficult to get employers to see you as qualified.

    At the start of the year I decided to get certified in UX/UI and interaction design. I graduated from the General Assembly boot camp a while back and have had one freelance contract, doing a fully responsive platform for Sports Dissected which is now in the devs hands and should be launching soon. I’m currently taking a Udemy coding class and trying to get a proper PM certification through Coursera.

    The job search sucks though. Honestly. It’s very hard to get an employer to take a chance on a true entry level candidate and everyone wants 3-5 years of experience. If anyone is in the industry or knows anyone in the industry and may have a role for a hard working guy with a military work ethic and who is willing to go above and beyond to find their start, even if it’s a humble one, I’m more than happy to relocate back to the east coast.

    Check out FDM. The pay sucks balls for the first two years, but after the contract is up, you’ll be golden. They also do a lot for vets so you should have no trouble.

    Good to see the city really starting to rebound. I've been going into the office a few days a week and each day when i walk home the bars/restaurants are more and more crowded
