Anyone know where I might buy MASA HARINA and a tortilla press in Queens? Or if not, then perhaps a bakery where I might buy them ready-made? GRACIAS!

    Packaged Masa Harina is readily available at grocery stores from Woodside out to Corona. Although, as discussed here in old threads, there seems to be no fresh masa available anywhere in NYC. There are several tortilla factories in both Queens and Brooklyn. The one at 61st & Roosevelt under the LIRR tracks I believe sells tortillas through its restaurant (which is hidden up a set of stairs on Roosevelt between 61st and 62nd Sts. next to the Italian bakery).
