My wife and I will be attending the graduation at the State University in Ithaca, NY. Would anyone know if they have a fairly economical hotel within the campus? We would need accommodation for the dates of:
May 17 and May 18, 2013.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
I'm looking for a fashion design workshop 1 upto 3 days for my young (19 y/o) niece traveling to NY for a week between June 30 to July 2 .
Would appreciate any feedback, website perhaps. Thank you in advance.
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.
Hello folks, We are a family of 3, includes a 5-year old, looking for summer activities around White Plains, NY area, within 50 mile of driving distance, EXCLUDING NYC. We would prefer one day activities (Sunday) but are open to other days during the week and more than one day (if its worth taking a day off from work for that)
Suggestions are welcome.
I am visiting NYC-Manhattan for an internship for about a month this summer. I'm from Houston TX, so I'm used to every other neighborhood being safe/unsafe, BUT because our city is sprawled out over so much space, I'm also used to everyone having a car to drive safely from point A to point B.
Point is, crime and danger are every day life in parts of Houston, but having to give up our safe and personal transportation control to a higher force is absolutely not. So, New Yorkers, I admire you. And I would really appreciate any advice on where is safe/unsafe to live/walk through/travel around in Manhattan. Please?
1. Is there something happening the first week of June this year? I see that several hotels in the Times Square/Theater District are already sold out. If there is something to avoid timewise, please let me know what it is.
2. The Official Spousal Unit, her mother, and I wish to go to Manhattan in June-ish timeframe. Prefer Time Square/Theater District for ease of getting around. Traditionally stayed at the Edison, but they are tired of crowds there (and seem to always to be put in non-renovated rooms). The MIL loved the Casablanca, but the prices have tripled in 2 or so years.
Boutique hotels are OK, but places like the Iroquois are showing up at $556.night in June. Suggestions?
My husband and I live in Texas but taking a different route to visit friends and family in Pennsylvania. We decided to make a one night stop in Niagara Falls and made a hotel reservation on the Canada side. I have been reading "horror stories" of incidents that have happened crossing to/from both sides, and very few good stories on that site. We are law-abiding U.S. citizens and are professionals. The horror stories have me/us second-guessing a trip to Canada to see the falls. Are there more "good" experiences than "horror" experiences out there about crossing the border?
I'm going to be in NYC for a few days in May. My prepaid phone through Telus Canada will not work and i'm not about to change over to a contract just for 5 days. I figured I could buy a cheap pre-paid phone with air time. I've heard Virgin has the better Manhattan coverage. Are they fairly easy to find without having to search too far for a store that sells them? We'll be staying in the Times Square area near 9th Ave.
I am visiting friends for a few days in Northern Toronto and we are hoping to get to Niagara and then from there we will be leaving them and we need to get to Newburgh, NY.
I have a friend who lives near there and we want to visit OCC as my fella loves the series but we are struggling t/o figure out the easiest way.
I have been told that you cannot take a rental car across the CA/US border and Newburgh seemingly doesn't have a train station. I kind of figured that we could get a train to Schenectady and then pick up a car (subject to there being a car collection point) and we could then drive to Newburgh and then on to NYC the following day.
Just one problem, the train from Niagara to Schenectady takes 8 hours and there is just no way I could do that with my son, he is Autistic amongst other things and 8 hours on a train plus a further 2 hours driving would be enough to do me in!!!
Is there maybe a mid way point that would take like 4-5 hours and would be a nice point to stop and stay over night, doesn't have to have much to do, just a nice cheap hotel and somewhere to eat etc?
Also can you buy an Amtrak ticket that allows you to get on and off at all?
