I was wondering if anyone has a rough estimate of the number of home brewers are in Queens and in NYC.

Fantastic. How long have you been brewing? I guess you're an apartment brewer like me.

i live in lower westchester currently and I too am an apartment brewer. For the record, my first brew was done in my brothers apt in long island city. We had to move the operation to my place once we went all grain.

Oh yeah... apartment brewer all the way. I've been doing it for 2 years. We should have a tri-state HBT meetup sometime.

Brooklyn here, though I was in Astoria until a year ago.

I am a stovetop all-grain brewer. Waiting for the boil takes a while...

I just hate the lack of a LHBS. Plus I can't really get deliveries to my building, so I have to get my stuff delivered to work and lug it an hour home on the subway. People get nervous when they see me with a corny keg.
