There are alot of such web sites like Airbnb.com but they all include illegal apartments whereas I'm trying to find one that complies with the recent New York City laws (May 2012 I think).

      Some friends and I are planning to get tickets for the Rockettes' Christmas show at Radio City Music Hall. Are there any seats/sections that we should specifically avoid getting, or is this one of those venues where every seat has a good view? :) I'm not sure how much money we're willing to shell out yet, but probably in the middle to upper middle of the ticket price range.

      Also, any recommendations on decent and reasonable (for the area) lodging nearby?

      I was at the top of the Empire State, took a picture to the north side. The shot shows green Metlife but there is another taller silverish building behind it with a tall spike at the top. To the west of this building, there is also another one with tall spike and H&M logo at the top. Tried many ways but couldn't identify, not even Google map street view.

      I live in Sydney Australia. It was a wonderful trip, so much to adore and see. I can send you the photos but can't attach them here. Please advise if you need them.

      Suggestions for 4 Days in New York City with Family

      by riorich55 Online Now Jun 16, 2014 at 7:44 AM

      OK everyone, this question is for a co-worker of mine who is going to be going to NYC in late July - early August for 4 days. I've told her wonderful things about the folks and the answers I've gotten over the past 6 1/2 years as a member, so pull out all stops and give her lots of suggestions. Here goes.

      1. of people - 6 including 2 adults and 4 boys ages 7, 8, 11 and 18

      Budget - $600 to $800 per day (including rooms, food, entertainment). Flights are already taken care of

      Things she has mentioned they would like to do are as follows:

      - Central Park
      - Ellis Island
      - A Broadway Show
      - Empire State Building
      - Times Square
      - All the other typical things that first time tourist do
      - Also some things that the non-typical folks would do

      If you can suggest a good 4 day itinerary that would be a plus.

      Thanks in advance!

      Cost of living

      by taurean_traveller Online Now Jun 10, 2014 at 11:14 PM

      My step daughter is hoping to stay in New York for month or so with a view to possible future education or job seeking for the future (we are aware of visa issues etc)
      She has a shared apartment booked in the Manhatten area.

      My question is regarding spending money etc as to cost of living/travel.
      She is not planning to eat out but rather buy her own food and live as she does in London,ie self catering.
      Buying from markets and supermarkets etc

      She will of course be travelling round the city to gather her information etc.

      What would be a reasonable daily budget taking in travel and food?
      My guesstimate would be starting around $30 per day (£20 sterling)
      Is this a reasonable figure as a minimum or am I way off?
      I have no idea as to how expensive NY is

      I realise that no one can be totally accurate but looking for a "general" starting point.

      i know she will want to do some touristy things but it's the basics we are looking for

    • Removal of stitches

      Hi,

      I've got a bit of a strange question. I'm going on holiday to New York tomorrow with my girlfriend for 10 days and she needs to get 3 stitches removed from her finger while she is there. We are staying right next to times square.

      I don't think that our travel insurance will cover it as its something that happened before the holiday, so I'm wondering if there is a cheap medical practice that would assist with this?

      hello fellow tourists

      I have to reach Walden, new york, and would be landing at newark international airport.
      After some googling I found that walden is a small village in Orange county and there are no direct bus/train connections.
      So I am looking for some suggestions to reach as close to walden as possible using bus or train and taking taxi for the last mile.
      taking taxi all the way is not an idea for a student :-)
      I tried Amtrak trains site , greyhound bus site but nothing concrete.

      Any suggestions will be very helpfull :-)
