    • Coolest place to stay

      New York City Jul 13, 2015 at 9:28 AM

      My daughter and I are going to New York in a few weeks. We go every summer to see as many Broadway shows as possible. Sometimes we stay in Time Square to be close to the theaters but I think one time staying there is more than enough. We have stayed right on Central Park but are looking for something different this time.

      We would like a neighborhood that is fun and hip with cool shopping and good places to get coffee in the morning.
      I was thinking of staying at the Standard High Line but would like recommendations of cool neighborhoods to stay in where we can walk to the shopping and restaurants.

      thanks, Robin

      Hi all, my Dad and I are coming to NYC Friday March 11th 2016, we arrive at JFK at 11:45 and leave on the Monday late evening and we absolutely cannot wait.

      Could you please give us an itinerary to follow which includes the following :

      Statue of liberty and Ellis island
      9/11 museum and memorial
      Grand central station

      Could you also recommend a few good bars I could visit in the evenings that are fun and friendly, not sure my Dad will be joining me as he's nearly 70 (I'm 38) but who knows ?

      Thanks in advance, I'm extremely excited and can't wait for our trip

      Thanks again,

    • Young blond white woman in Harlem or Bronx as a visitor. Yes or No?

      New York City Jul 12, 2015 at 7:03 AM

      Hey Local Fellas, Please help me in this safety question. My friend is visiting NYC soon as a tourist, staying there for 1 month just for a vacation. This is her first time in NYC (and in USA as well), she is from Eastern Europe, and we are not sure how safe is Harlem and Bronx for her. I have read some great reviews for these areas that they are not that dangerous as it was, and some of you wrote that you are living there for years and feel safe. I know it is different if you are a local, but what about this case? What do you think? Any thoughts and suggestions appreciated. Gabriella

    • Water Taxi

      New York City 12 hours ago

      Can someone tell me more about the water taxi? We are staying in Times Square so it looks like we would get on at Pier 79 (at 39th street).

      1. Is the 90 minutes ride, the full circle bringing you back to Pier 79?  Or one way?
      2. DH wanted to go to the World Trade Center to teach our DS (not sure if area, museum or tribute centre).  Not sure if its better if we add it into the water taxi ride (as it looks like an option) or to do this on our own?  I"m thinking of doing it separately (i.e. taking subway down on another day) as it seems like there is more coordination with the taxi of timings....plus there is a dinner place we want in the area. 
      3. Is there a bathroom on board (we have 2 kids)?
      4. Do people tend to hop on and off, or just stay on for the cruise?   

      Thanks.  Any tips or info would be helpful.

    • Do-able in One Day?

      New York City Yesterday

      We're coming to NY with our 10 and 6 year olds. I'm looking at getting the 1-day New York City Pass (to be used on a Friday) and so am figuring out a bunch of attractions that interest us, are near each other, and worthwhile on the pass for the day. This is what I'm thinking but is it realistic?

      • Top of the Rock & surrounding stores (Nintendo for DS, American Girl for DD)
      • Radio City Music Hall Tour
      • lunch in the area
      • Either Madison Square Gardens Tour - or - Water Taxi (for good views of Statue of Liberty and the city)
      • Madame Tussauds Was Museum
      • Discovery Times Square

      Is this all doable or is it too much?  Much thanks.

      Security check - under age

      New York City Jul 20, 2015 at 7:02 AM

      Hello! I am going to New York with my two friends in August and we are quite scared about the security check. We are all under age and we're going to visit my friend (16 yrs old) and her mother. Her mother was borned in Czech Republic and she is also daughter of my dad's friend so they come to Czech Republic every year, and this is how we met. I am afraid that this will sound stupid because we aren't family.And what we should tell to the security check when they ask about the reason why we are visiting new york? Can we say that we are going there because of the tourism? I am just afraid that they will think that we are going there to work or something....

      Thank you for your advice

    • 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.
      Thanks

    • 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.
