    • Crossing the border in Niagara Falls

      Niagara Falls Nov 16, 2015 at 5:28 AM

      I'm a Brazilian guy married to an American Citizen. We have three daughters, all of them have American citizenship. We're going to visit Niagara Falls in December. I know that my wife and my kids can cross the border. Is it possible to get a visa in Buiffalo? How long will it take to get the visa there?

      Hi New Yorkers. I would be grateful for your help.
      I will be arriving in New York on 21st December in the afternoon and leaving on the evening of the 28th.
      I will require a single trip from Jamaica into Manhattan on the E train to get to my hotel and then I want an 7 day card that I will use from the 22nd until my departure on the 28th.
      My question is, can I just take my single trip card and get it loaded at a booth for 7 days on the 22nd or is the 7 day card a different type? Many thanks. Roy.

      Hi. My wife and I fly out to New York on the 27th December and back to the UK on the 2nd January. We have our itinerary pretty well sorted but are struggling with what to do on NYE. We are staying on East 50th Street. My wife isn't a fan of fireworks so probably wouldn't enjoy Central Park and we do not want to spend a whole day standing in Times Square. We are young at heart mid 50's non-clubbing types and would like to go somewhere for a nice meal with possibly live music.Any suggestions would be very welcome. Thank you.

      Apartment rather than hotel

      New York City Oct 30, 2015 at 1:58 AM

      Hi son is visiting New York for 5nghts in July16. The hotels are expensive & small rooms, so I wanted to ask members if he would get better value if he could find apartment in central location. His budget is circa $100per night. Any thoughts?.?

    • New York / Washington

      New York City Oct 27, 2015 at 10:16 AM

      My wife and myself are intending to take my daughter to New York next year for her 21st (her best friend would also like to accompany us). Because of university she can’t go before the beginning of July and because of the heat we have decided on late August or early September. However both my daughter and myself would also like to visit Washington and so I have some questions I would be grateful advice on.

      1. We had thought of flying to Washington for 3 / 4 days, then going by train to NY for 3 / 4 days and then flying home to Dublin. However this is getting expensive and friends who have been, say it would be better to base ourselves in NY and take a day trip to Washington – is this feasible or even worthwhile?

      2. Part of the reason for the expense is that we require two rooms/bedrooms. I then thought it would be better to rent an apartment which would offer greater flexibility, but this is more difficult with a two-centre stay and I’ve heard that the Governor of NY has now made this illegal, although the internet has plenty of apartments for short-term rent.

      All advice welcome. Thanks

      Travel by Subway from Times Square to Yankee stadium

      Have tickets for the evening game on Friday Sept 5th.
      Any thoughts on how long before game time we should catch the subway? we are staying in a hotel a block or so from Times square. I expect large crowds, should I also expect huge lineups at security, or do they handle things fairly well?
      If we arrived there a couple hours early is there something to see /do near the stadium?
      Many thanks.

    • Is this location okay for an apartment in Manhattan?

      by nyholiday2010 Online Now Feb 13, 2010 at 7:57 PM

      Friends and I are travelling to New York for Christmas and New York.
      We have found an apartment but are not sure of the location, having not been to New York and not sure about the winter weather.

      The apartment is located on West 42nd St between 11th and 12th avenues.

      Is this location okay for shops and places to eat within walking distance, and is 3 - 4 blocks far to walk in winter to catch the subway? Not sure if this walk will be hard in snow after sightseeing all day.

      Also, the location seems to be close to major roads, is this likely to be noisy? Are the roads very busy?

      Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
