  A Feng Shui Bedroom in Great Neck Long Island New York On a recent Feng Shui Consultation in the lovely North Shore Long Island town of Great Neck New York, Laura Cerrano and I walked into a perfectly appointed Feng Shui Bedroom. Our clients had requested a Feng Shui Consultation for their home in Great Neck but they were choosing colors before we were able to get there.  As Feng Shui Consultants in New York we often do Color Consultations which are included if our Feng Shui Clients are choosing to paint. Our clients wanted Neutral Colors while addressing the fact that their Bedroom was located in their Wealth Area (for which the Accent Color is Purple). As bedrooms in Feng Shui are Shared Spaces, the colors chosen had to be warm and inviting to both of our clients in their bedroom to...

Feng Shui in Great Neck Long Island New York...Feng Shui and Wealth The lovely Long Island town of Great Neck is located on the North Shore of Long Island NY in Nassau County.  I think of Great Neck as an "exotic" little town with a bustling Main Street and even by Long Island standards, it's an expensive place to live. Both Feng Shui Long Island and Feng Shui Manhattan frequently get called to consult on a home or business located in the affluent town of Great Neck.  It's ideal for many residents for the feeling of Long Island as it's located close to the water while being only a very short train ride away from New York City. Great Neck offers a variety of homes from Apartments to lovely Condos and very affluent homes.  Last fall Laura Cerrano and I did a Feng Shui Consultation there f...

For those of you that know me, you know that I am a huge fan of shopping. As far as I am concerned, they can create a paying career for shopping. I would be applying for it today. Something else that I like to do that would rival my desire to shop is eating. This might run neck to neck in things that I love to do. And, specking of neck, some friends of mine were recently in Great Neck, New York. Apparently they went to Long Island to visit some friends over the holidays. One day, their friends decided to take them shopping in Great Neck. From the sounds of the stores and restaurants, it is just the place that I would love to go. Not too busy and not to sparse, but just right with shoppers. Plus, from the way that I understander it, Great Neck has that Town Center feel to it. This is the...

  Spring is right around the corner.  One of the best benefits of being a Great Neck resident is enjoying its parks.  In order to take full advantage of the parks and the wonderful programs the Parks District has to offer you will need a valid park card.  If you are getting your first card or need to renew your existing card go to the Great Neck House to do it.  The Great Neck House hours are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday between 10:00 to 6:00, Thursday 10:00 to 8:00, Saturday 9:00 to 4:00 and Sunday 11:00 to 4:00.

Parking in Great Neck is a commodity.  Proximity to the train station and the ability to find parking has influenced many of the buyers I have worked with in their decision to purchase a home.The Great Neck Park District owns and manages three commuter lots.  There is a daily fee to park in those lots.  You may purchase a daily ticket from the Dunkin Donuts across from the train station or buy a monthly or annual parking sticker.  An annual ticket is a 13% saving.  An annual ticket is $635, a monthly ticket is $60 and a daily ticket is $3.50.Residents of multiple dwellings in Great Neck Plaza are eligible to obtain a permit to park in the municipal garages on Plaza Centre and on Maple Drive. Only one permit per household is permitted.  The current cost is $90 per quarter.  Probably the ...

The Great Neck Chamber of Commerce holds a monthly breakfast which is open to the public to attend. I have attended several of these breakfasts and have found them a great place to network. They usually have a guest speaker at the breakfast as well. The next breakfast is scheduled for Thursday December 20, 2007 at 8:00 AM. It will be held at the Inn at Great Neck. Breakfast is $16 plus an additional $1 if you would like to participate in the raffle. You can pay at the door or you can reserve a seat by calling the Great Neck Chamber of Commerce at (516) 487 - 2000http://www.CoopsToCastles.com

 Janet and I sell many co-ops especially in Great Neck.  Many times our buyers tell us that they are reluctant to purchase a co-op because they have heard horror stories about Boards rejecting applicants without giving a reason.  Although co-op Boards are not required to state their requirements for approval or rejection, we have found that most co-op boards base their decision primarily on an applicant's financials.  Many Board's require that a buyer finance no more than 80% of the purchase price.  Janet and I always qualify our buyers before beginning the application process.  That way we are confident that the end result will be a closing.  The way we qualify our buyers is to use a basic formula to ensure that the Debt to Income ratio does not exceed 35% of their gross annual income....
