    That's for sunlight, not heat.. laughing out loud.

    metals like aluminum are very good conductors of heat,
    excellent thermal conductor
    heat travels within aluminum very well

    Flushing, baby! Some good eating there. Both American Chinese and old school traditional. Chinese.

    Plus...

    Cuban Sandwiches on 9th Avenue close to Central Park.

    Mexican food like El Centro in Hell's Kitchen.

    NYC food is amazing.
