- If the X-Men went to a mall, what mall would it be?
- Where would the X-Men go to the beach?
- What's a good location for Rogue to be going for "the cure" in X3 (with specifics of the kind of location it should be)?
These are the kinds of things that someone familiar with NYC and its suburbs can answer easily, but could be hard for someone who doesn't live here, regardless of how much research they do. So I think it's good to ask - a friend or a comm.
What dumbfounds me is people who post on that comm who apparently know absolutely nothing about the milieu in which they're setting their story, yet seem to only care about a "little detail." How do they ever think they are going to write a story set in a time and place they are completely ignorant of, or within a subculture they know nothing about? And why would they think that getting one detail right would somehow matter, given complete ignorance?
