      Loft Accommodation

      New York City Mar 11, 2015 at 12:33 AM

      Hi everyone,

      My wife and I are travelling from Australia to New York, where we have booked for four nights prior to a 12 night cruise from New Jersey to Quebec. We booked a loft apartment (Mikkasa Metro Suites - 38 W 31st St New York) via Expedia. I know lofts a small but given there are only two of us and its towards the centre of the City its all we need. I have since read after booking that a lot of the adverstised apartments and lofts etc are in fact non existent and are scams. I am assuming via Expedia we are covered as we have booked via them to the US on three prior occasions in the past 18 months without issue. None the less we have tried to call the accommodation and have been constantly greeted with a message service and we havent been responded to - albeit given where we live that might be understandable. Has anyone had any concerns re accommodation in New York and in your learned opinions should we do some more due diligence.

      Short listed places to stay.. safety/convenience/food etc etc...

      New York City Mar 2, 2015 at 2:25 AM

      Hi I'm travelling to NYC for the first time with my partner for 5 days. We are in our mid-twenties and really love food.
      We are trying to decide on a place to stay and are tossing up between:
      1) Upper West Side- West 107th Street (my top choice based on the description and reviews of the place)
      2) Lower East End - Henry St
      3) East Village - East 7th St
      4) Union Sq/Gramercy Park - East 14th St
      5) Upper East side - 89th St
      6) East Village/Gramercy Park - East 15th St

      Do any of these stand out as being very good areas (safety, food, convenience) or are they all about the same? Do any of these stand out as being places to avoid? Or are there places directly surrounding these areas that should be avoided?

      Where to stay in Brooklyn and which airport is nearest?

      by mickey.p Online Now Apr 27, 2013 at 12:34 PM

      I am looking to spend 2- nights in NYC, we were there last year and did lots so are just doing a couple of nights between other areas.

      We are looking to do Brooklyn bridge and Ellis Island as we missed these last year and we want to go to Newburgh for a day (OCC and to visit a friend!).

      Where can you recommend?

      Last year we stayed at the Holiday Inn Manhattan View in Long Island City and it was perfect - great for everything.
      This was suggested by someone on this forum so thought I'd ask for something similar in Brooklyn.
      Need something not too expensive, walking distance to trains/subways etc.

      My son is Autistic so he doesn't like crowds and the hotel last year was a great escape from the craziness of Manhattan!

      Also which airport is closest to Brooklyn? We are flying to the west coast after NYC.

Since its just me I can live in a studio apartment, and I can pay up to about1200/month. Accessibility to good public transport is preferred, and safety is key since I want to live somewhere where I would feel safe if I have to return home late at night. Let me know where the best neighborhoods would be for affordability as well as safety.

      Woman with *challenging* sense of direction asks for assistance! Toronto>>Brooklyn

      by milan2003 Online Now Dec 1, 2011 at 8:42 AM


      For some reason, I thought it would be a good idea to drive to Brooklyn. I'm not sure why this seemed reasonable at the time. I've driven to many places before, but do not know the many highways, tunnels, etc around NYC...and now that I see there are dozens of 'steps' in googlemap, know that I will get lost. And I do *not* want to get lost in the middle of a city-scape maze that I can't get out of.

      Oh...and I don't have a GPS.

      I'm looking for the best route from Toronto to Brooklyn (Eastern Parkway). I know the shortest route seems to go through Chinatown, but I can't imagine what the traffic would be like. I *can* imagine me holding onto the wheel with the grip of death, getting lost, and leaving my car at the side of the road as I jump on the 4/5/6.

      Would any of you have taken this route before?

      Do you have suggestions for the best route taking into consideration directionally challenged people, as well as knowing the most logical routes (i.e. going through lower Manhattan is probably not a great idea).

      Your feedback is MOST welcome!

      Thank you
