      Accommodation

      New York City 14 hours ago

      A member of my family is wanting to visit New York for a couple of months. They are on a very limited budget and we have no idea as to cost of renting. Can anyone recommend places to stay,flat share,decent hostels, living with families etc etc. We have surfed and found lots and lots of adverts for apartments but would like to hear from anybody who has actually stayed in shared accommodation,or stayed with a family.or recommend hostels and the like. What would be an acceptable rent to pay per week for a couple of months.
      The preferred situation would be to share or stay with a family rather than a hostel as part of the process of visiting is to get to know people and everyday life.

      Many thanks

      Checked bags on AMTRAK with no checked bags sign

      Hi all,

      I'm going to go to Paoli, PA from New York, NY with AMTRAK. The sign on the schedule says the train has no checked bags. But I have to bring my big bag because I will continue the trip (also with AMTRAK) to Washington DC then head home to Indonesia. Is it possible to just bring the luggage with me even if it says no checked bag?

      Hi,

      I just found this forum.

      I am traveling to Albany tomorrow actually and was wondering if anyone can recommend some activities an 11 yr old might enjoy, and what about some kid friendly restaurants in the area? Someone recomended the Pump Station to me, but is it kid friendly?

      And the one major question, what's the price of gas running down there? Up here in Lockport NY it's dropped to2.97 that's down from3.05 two weeks ago.

      Any help is greatly appreciated.
