When the Fast of Tisha B'Av begins, in 2011, in Kew Gardens Hills, New York

Tonight starts the fast of the Ninth of Av, Tisha B'av. When does it start?

I can only tell you my local times. It differs by location. Please check the linked-to websites for your own local times, by filling in your own zip code.

For Kew Gardens Hills, in Queens:

From Chabad:

Shkiah (sunset) | Fast Begins
8:04 pm
Tzeit Hakochovim (nightfall)
8:40 pm

From MyZmanim:

Fast Begins at Sunset (See below)

Do not rely on zmanim times to the last moment.

Sunset****שקיעת החמה
In a level region [Set Elevation]8:02:54במישור

I think Kew Gardens Hills is elevated 24 meters (79 feet), so I put that in, and I got:

Sunset****שקיעת החמה
In a level region [Set Elevation]8:02:54במישור
Elevated 24 meters8:03:53בגובה 24 מטר

which is the same as the Chabad time.

I see that MyZmanim has a new opening screen, which prompts for zip code. And then, it only shows according fast end times according to one opinion. To see more opinions, you need to click through a warning screen to consult your own local Orthodox rabbi.
