After five glorious years in Astoria, my husband and I are moving to Sunset Park, around 8th Ave. and 42nd St. I've been trawling the boards for great restaurant ideas but what I need to know (and have a sinking feeling about) is this:
Where do I get wine?
I love wine. I love great wine stores, which we have a couple of here in Astoria. But when I search nearby our new place on Google Maps for wine, everything is about twenty blocks away. "Liquor" brings up some places but I'm concerned that those aren't really wine-heavy in their retail. Do any Sunset Parkers have any suggestions or locations they go to when they want a decent selection?
Also, anyone who uses that C-Town on 8th, how do you find it, as a store?
Glad to know anything you can offer us, as newcomers!
