When the fast of Taanit Esther begins, in NYC, in 2011

The fast of Taanis Ester begins tomorrow, Thursday morning, at dawn. Here is the info, from This is for Flushing, NY. If you live elsewhere, you should visit the site yourself and adjust your location data to find your own local times. From Chabad:

Alot Hashachar (dawn) | Fast Begins
5:42 am
Earliest Tallit and Tefillin
6:10 am
Netz Hachamah (sunrise)
7:03 am

and according to MyZmanim:
Fast Begins

at 5:43 AM Dawn - Degrees
or at 5:52 AM Dawn - Fixed Minutes
Eating of a settled character - אכילת קבע - may not be started
during the half hour immediately preceding dawn. Please
consult your Rabbi for details. 
Have an easy fast!

This does NOT mean that Purim is on Thursday night / Friday. Purim is on Motza'ei Shabbos / Sunday!
