Subject: How long have you lived at your current residence?

Written By: CeramicsFanatic on 07/09/07 at 4:37 pm

We bought the house we're in right now in 1996, so I've been living here for 11 years...

I've been at my current residence since June of '06, so just slightly over a year.

The longest I've lived anywhere was between the time I was born (1982) until 1994 - making that 12 years.

For about 2 years now.  My previous residence was a semi, and I lived there from June 1985 - November 2005.  I know it's June of 1985 because I had to do a research project in college that showed how long I had lived in the place i currently resided in.  We were the second people to live in that semi, which was built around '77 or '78

I lived in the same house until I got married.  Where I live now is the third house we've had together.  I did find moving stressful each time and said I'd never do it again but if we really had to do it I would.

I guess it's different if you've lived in the same house for a long time. Perhaps your parents are thinking about moving to a smaller place?

I could do that for most (but I don't think all) of the houses I lived in-if not the exact date, but definitely the month & year-and there have been many, many of them. I have to figure out exactly how many.

About a month and a half now. It's a single room in a shared house but I'm loving it. Ironically, everything is bigger than my old flat (apartment) including the bathroom and kitchen. The garden is lovely and big too and I enjoyed weeding last Sunday in the sun - which is unusual for me as I barely have a green finger on my hand, lol.

Well, sort of. Please don't freak out, but it's a residential alcohol rehabilitation unit. After 3 years of heavy drinking due to personal problems I've finally got a funded place- here for 16 weeks getting my head & body sorted after drying out.  :)

On a more personal note, good to see you're still around, Howard, as you are one of the users I remember from my previous time here, around 4-5 years ago, when I was just Goodsin. And you still have that great sense of humour!

Yep, it's pretty good so far, but early days, thanks for asking.

Wow, Howard, can't imagine living in the same house for that long. Even before I left my parents at 17 I'd lived in 6 different houses in the same area; since then, probaly about 15 in different areas. I even lived in a caravan as what they called a "New Age Traveller" for some time, and have fitted in time to be homeless in between; after I get out of here, I'm going to a halfway-house for a bit, and then have been made the offer of living on my friend's new farm in the middle of nowhere. I feel like a nomad! (Now where can I get one of those, at this time of the day??)  :D

I've lived in flushing for 40 years and have relatives in Bayside. Who knows, maybe our paths have crossed at one time or another.


I always hated Flushing,something about the Chinese and Japanese residing there.

Wow, Howard, can't imagine living in the same house for that long. Even before I left my parents at 17 I'd lived in 6 different houses in the same area; since then, probaly about 15 in different areas. I even lived in a caravan as what they called a "New Age Traveller" for some time, and have fitted in time to be homeless in between; after I get out of here, I'm going to a halfway-house for a bit, and then have been made the offer of living on my friend's new farm in the middle of nowhere. I feel like a nomad! (Now where can I get one of those, at this time of the day??)   :D


My parents moved to Bayside in 1970,My brother(god rest his soul) was born in 1971,then I was born in 1974 but they moved to 214th street in 1973 where I now live and let me tell ya,this house has had a lot of memories,jam packed.

Yep, it's pretty good so far, but early days, thanks for asking. Like I said, I don't want to hijack this thread, so I may start a thread about people's experiences with alcohol problems & treatment somewhere else (hardly appropriate for a Playful Penguin Place!), unless there's one somewhere already. If you want to hear the full gory details, let me know & I'll send you a PM. Thanks, Howard!


I think there's a thread in the Tenacious Tuxedo Talk section

I wouldn't want to work there,It just gets very overcrowded and once you get off the Q27,you get lost easily.

How true. Flushing, in the Main St & Roosevelt Ave area (the "Hub") was very congested by the time I left in 2006. It was so difficult trying to walk down the street. Too crowded. Even in the Murray Hill neighborhood where I lived I'd have to wait for a procession of people to pass by before I could walk out my front gate. It became that ridiculous! The town must be way overpopulated by now. What a contrast from growing up there in the 60's when the neighborhood had a very sleepy and suburban feel to it.

The DMV is on the other side of Main street & Northen Blvd near the Flushing/College Point border. Not far from the 'Whitestone Lanes' Bowling Alley.

My grandparents have been in their house for 40 years.  They actually moved (literally moved) it a few years after it was first built to a new location.

Since 1989 my mom and I have lived perminantly with her parents, my grandparents, untill my gran passed away in 2007.  Since then my mom and I have been looking after my gramp because nobody else in the family seemed willing to do that.  My uncle and one aunt want to tuck him away somewhere but my mother won't have any of it.
