      Checked bags on AMTRAK with no checked bags sign

      by icamarica Online Now Apr 3, 2014 at 6:13 AM

      Hi all,

      I'm going to go to Paoli, PA from New York, NY with AMTRAK. The sign on the schedule says the train has no checked bags. But I have to bring my big bag because I will continue the trip (also with AMTRAK) to Washington DC then head home to Indonesia. Is it possible to just bring the luggage with me even if it says no checked bag?

      Pickpockets today?

      by Turska Online Now Mar 6, 2014 at 2:50 AM

      I checked warnings and dangers, but there wasn´t any new tips about pick pockets. Is there lots of them or not so much at all-or something like in big cities in Europe too.. I have a brand new camera, witch is more expensive than my older one, even if it´s not anythin really fancy. Just wondering if I can take photos there without worrying too much? Like in some towns we have been, I have taken my much smaller camera with me in some areas, when they say there is lots of pick pockets. But I get so much better photos with this one, and even if it´s much bigger, it´s much lighter too. (Because it´s 6 years "younger"). If there is only some areas, where those are really "rude" and don´t try to pick in seacred, Icould then take the small one, but if those are everywhere, there is maybe no sense taking both with me.
      I know in some places there are those pick pockets, who might take your camera while you are shooting photos. That´s what I was thinking about. Of course in big towns you must allways keep your money safe, not in backbag etc, but the camera (this one) I can´t just put under my jacket all the time. We are leaving day after tomorrow, and I´m wondering should I take both cameras, or only the old one. I love taking photos, and this town is something SO different we´ve seen before, that I think my husband needs to be patient for all my "filming" ;)

      ID in museums and such

      by Turska Online Now Feb 18, 2014 at 2:13 PM

      I´ve heard we might need to take our ID to some museums (tell me, if there is any other places?). In London there were some discounts for EU citizens, and in Tower bridge we just needed to show our ID in security check. They did accept drivers license (we both have ones with English text also). Are those accepted in NY, or do we need to take our passports everywhere? Feels unsafe to have them with us all the time.
      Do we need ID in trai? (We are viviting Washington).
      How about restaurants? We are in 40´s, but we keep hearing when we travel, that "why you Finns look so yung, you look like 20" (I don´t want to look like 20, but if they ask our ID in restaurant, is drivers license o.k.?) Maybe we Finns look younger (I´ve heard it said to many other people too, not to us only!) because we are freezed at winter :D (Exept this year..)

Is there big difference on it, and Hell´s kitchen flea? We want to visit local flea market, but we have not enough days to visit both. (We will come and leave at saturday). Looks like there is no flea markets at weekdays (on march).

      Hi,

      I have a 15 hour layover at JFK. My flight arrives at 9:52 PM and leaves 12:38 PM the following day.
      I was planning on catching the last trip at the Empire State Building (1:15 AM) and then heading over to the Staten Island Ferry terminal at White Hall Terminal and catching the 3:30 AM trip to see the Statue of Liberty. Was planning on using public transpo as suggested by this site:
      tripplanner.mta.info/MyTrip/...
      I was wondering if 1 - is it really doable? 2 - given the travel times (wee hours of the morning) is it safe and would the Staten trip still be enjoyable? Like will I still be able to see the Statue of Liberty? Was wondering if maybe it might still be too dark...
      Was also thinking of going to times square before Staten but am not sure if it is safe to walk from Empire State to Times Square at ~2 AM....
      Would appreciate feedback/suggestions regarding this. Thanks much (^_^)

      I'm headed to NYC this weekend to see a friend play at Carnegie Hall. I'll be at 57 and Park and she will be the other direction from CH, also on 57th. We wanted to meet for breakfast, maybe 9ish, before we catch our flights back. I've seen some places that look good, but only offer a later brunch. Any recommendations on a place we can grab a good breakfast within walking distance for both of us? Doesn't have to be typical breakfast fare.
