      My niece's two daughters - 11 and 13 - are athletic and curious, but used to city life. I would like to use Adirondack (I live in Saratoga County) to introduce them to the outdoors. What activities with associated locations would you recommend.

    • 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

      9/11 museum and memorial
      Grand central station

      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

      Here are the places:

      Empire State Building

      Statue of Liberty
      American Museum of Natural History
      Central Park
      FAO Schwarz (767 5th Ave)
      The Sony Wonder Technology Lab
      Hershey's Times Square
      National September 11 Memorial and Museum
      Ripley's Believe It or Not! Times Square
      Rockefeller Centre

      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

      Can I bring cheese to the USA?

      New York City Yesterday


      I want to bring cheese to the USA. It's ok, I've already read an article about bringing food to the USA, but I don't know what should I say in Custom Declaration. -Mark an X in the Yes or No box. Are you bringing with you:

      A)Fruits, plants, food, or insects? B)Meats, animals, or animal/wildlife products?

      Should I mark Yes to these answers?
