    • Toronto to US, budget tour for 10 - 15 day

      New York City Jun 26, 2015 at 10:36 AM

      Hello Everyone, I am a student from India and would be coming to York University for semester exchange. I believe I could easily manage 10-15 days out of my schedule to visit US as well. (I have already applied for the US visa and will hopefully will get the same.) I am on a limited budget and want to make the most of it, I especially want to visit Disney World and Universal Studios, in Orlando and New York City. (Niagara Falls is nearby so that can be visited on any other weekend so thats not an issue). Please help me come up with the cheapest option to travel and come up with an inventory for the tour. Also are there any other places that could be squeezed in the limited time frame. I would have put on a budget but the thing is I would like to spend the minimum amount so in case even if my budget is X, and you suggest budget as Y which is less than X I would stick to Y as I intend to spend rest of my budget in travelling in Canada.

      Hi everbody,

      I’m travelling in New York with my family and three young children (4, 5, 7 years) during august 2015. We would like to do some activities with children. What kind of show would you recommend ? We will prefer a show in late afternoon. We will stay in the Broadway neighborhood and I would like to know if there are activities especially for children ? The children love animals, so is it possible to visit some institution dedicated to that ?

      Thanks for you help.

      Hi everybody.
      I'm planning a trip to New York. I’m from Belgium and I would like visit this city for one week with a friend. It’s my first travel in New York and I’m wondering if anyone has any advice to give me to enjoy my trip. First, does anyone any suggestions for neighbourhoods ? I had thought Manathan, but is it safe ? What's nearby ? And is it easy to get around ? Does anyone know of a hotel around here ? Second, what are the must-see and do in New York? I went on the web to search, there were many results and I would like to hear the opinions from locals or people who know New York.

      Thank you for reading.

    • Safety in the South Bronx

      by ava0421 Online Now Dec 13, 2014 at 12:02 PM

      My boy friend and I will be staying in the S. Bronx for three nights leading up to New Years. Reading all of the information on here I'm starting to get a little worried. My boy friend is a dark skinned Italian/Puerto Rican and I am a super light skinned blonde that weighs about 105lbs. Anyone have any tips or advice that will keep us from getting into trouble. Are the metros considered safe during the day or should we take taxis everywhere we go? Are there certain streets or areas we should absolutely avoid?
      I'd also love to know if there are certain places that you recommend we see; restaurants, sites etc.

    • Getting from LGA to Lafayette Ave/White Plains Rd, Bronx

      by thisonegirl Online Now Nov 18, 2014 at 3:07 AM

      What's the best option (transportation wise) to take from LGA to Lafayette Ave/White Plains Rd, Bronx area? A friend and I have never been to that area and don't want to be completely clueless. I'm debating if I want to deal with the subway/bus system or just take a cab straight from the airport considering that I will have to lug some luggage around. Also, can someone advise me about the area? I'm planning on staying with a friend for a few days and spend the rest in the city. Does the buses have enough space for luggage or is it just certain ones?

      Any and all advice would greatly be appreciated. :D Thanks!

I would appreciate very much anyone who could recommend a place in the Bronx area which matches my requirements as follows: (a) good neighborhood, (b) accesibility to public transportations,e.g., sub-way, buses, (c) accessibility to school, hospital, and groceries. (d) accesibility to church. I don't have much knowledge about the Bronx area. Aside from Riverdale area, any recommendation of other good places to raise a family in the Bronx area would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your kind help.
