NYC, or thereabouts
If you want to do it as a forum (like macrumors.com, say), then it's not tough at all.

Go to A Small Orange or similar high-quality host, purchase your domain name for the year ($10), choose your hosting package (from $30/yr.), log in to cPanel, and use Fantastico to install phpBB2 or SMF forum software (free). You'll be up and running -- and I'm no web guru!

Let us know if you decide to do it -- if you get a critical mass of posters, you'll probably be able to get some ad space going from mac-oriented e-commerce.

Best of luck!
