View Full Version : Newbie in NYC

I want to start off by saying that this is a great board supported by a great magazine. This is only my first year playing pool, so please excuse my ignorance in the subject.

The first time I picked up BD was Friday of last week when I was on the UES of Manhattan in Amsterdam Billiards. I was in the neighbourhood when I remembered that I needed a new glove. I bought a new glove and the magazine, and that's how it started. I began browsing this site and reading some of the posts tonight initially out of boredom (it's 3:45 AM), but found it to be pretty good reading. I soon noticed how often I found a reference to Corner Billiards. I guess I didn't realise how popular the place is! It's been my main pool hall ever since I started (senior year in high school) and I see Tony Robles once in a while, and hear about him even more often. Anyway, I have a 8-ball league match tomorrow... who knows, maybe another Corner patron will read this and see me there tomorrow.

Look for people with CCB key tags dangling from their cases...welcome to the board (I'm not a NY'er but i'd bet UES means upper east side).../ccboard/images/icons/smile.gif

Hi John. I played in the league last season but you and I didn't get to play, but I'm the chick with the tattoo on my arm and chest (boob, hooter, whatever) that plays there too. You haven't seen me there this season as I'm taking a break from a couple of things. Anyways, welcome and good luck tonite!

<blockquote><font class="small">Quote: 9 Ball Girl:</font><hr> I'm the chick with the tattoo on my arm and chest (boob, hooter, whatever) <hr></blockquote>Geez, that describes something on the order of 85% of the women playing bar pool here in Dallas... You're the only one in NYC that fits that description??!? /ccboard/images/icons/smile.gif

SPetty~~~It actually also describes something on the order of 45% of the men if you include nipple rings...

I though that there were just cowboys in Texas. What in the world are we supposed to call this group of people with the ear rings in their nipples?!!!! I must not get around much like I used to LOL. <hr></blockquote>

Texas...where men are men and the sheep are nervous.../ccboard/images/icons/smile.gif

Ah, I think I know who you are. It's too bad we didn't get to play. I missed the playoffs last season by one or two people. This time around I think (hope) I'll make it. Maybe I'll see you around the hall.

I'm the only one that fits that description in that league at Corner Billiards, possibly the room too. /ccboard/images/icons/smile.gif

Good morning:

Welcome, to our CCB family. Please make yourself right at home! Many of the CCB regulars reside in the NYC Metropolitan area and can be routinely found at the following locations:

Amsterdam West, Manhattan
Amsterdam East, Manhattan
Corner Billiards, Manhattan

I am certain that there are many other locations, as I am sure those who frequent this board will share with you. Personally, you will either find me at Amsterdam West in Manhattan or Comet Billiards in Parsippany, NJ.

And...I think that there are only 3 CCBers from Brooklyn: TomBrooklyn, Naz, and me. You can find us at Hall of Fame Billiards, Platinum Billiards, and Park Slope Billiards. There are some others but these are the main ones.
