hello, just moved to LIC/Astoria and started a website: I am trying to put together lists of the cheapest everything (laundry, dry cleaners, gyms etc but also best everything for the best possible price, all in AStoria, then I'll tackle LIC). Please send your comments and I"ll consider them onto the site. Thanks Ryan for creating this group.

I love this group name!  ;)  I earn my 'cheapness' status by using Astoria Park as my gym.  I probably save ~$500 a year, plus it's nice to watch the seasons changing!

I've found a great place to have clothing dry cleaned (when there's no other way of cleaning it). Ditmars Cleaners located at 21-79 Steinway Street, Astoria NY (718-204-2795) is very, very reasonable.  A little "hole in the wall", right next to Wah Fung Chinese take out. I recently brought in 2 skirts and a dress. It was $4 per skirt and $8 for the dress. I've used other cleaners in the area. There prices were at least double what Ditmars Cleaners charges and their cleaning was just the same.
