  1. There's a big Asian market right at the Roosevelt Ave-74st station...I think its called Pacific? Big Asian markets are always the best bet for lobsters. Next bet, 1 stop away (Elmhurst) on the R or V will bring you to the confluence of NY Market, Top Line, and Hong Kong markets...check out each one (they're within a block of each other) and just buy the ones that look best.
