Looking for good sports bars in the Midtown West/Times Square area. For me, good means baseball/hockey (not soccer), lots of TV's with good beer prices (not likely) and decent food as priorities, in that order. Thanks
This one will be tricky one Last time I was in NY it was 2001. I had the best kosher beef sandwich ever. Now after 13 years I am coming back to Big Apple dreaming about that sandwich. Problem is i dont remember where i had it. All I remember is that the restaurant was by the one of the south eastern avenues moft def south from Times Sq. It was a single story building (or at least I remember it this way) Brown on the outside paint/wood?? Any hints where it might have been?
I will be in NY for xmas this year with my wife. Staying near Times Square. Does anyone know where we can get a good xmas dinner on xmas day. Nothing too pricey, just a nice traditional dinner. Also would we need to pre book? Thanks in advance.
I am planning a road trip through the US. We planned to start (and end) in NYC, drive down to New Orleans, and continue to explore the southern states. Does anyone know some reliable car rentals we can use. And could you advice me on what motels to use and what average prices are of a motel room?
I am visiting in April and plan to go to 1 or 2 ballgames. I don't want to buy tickets in advance in case the weather is bad but don't want to wait to get them at the stadium either if possible. It appears the Yankee Clubhouse stores sell tickets but I can only find one Mets shop (at 11 42nd St W) that sells Mets tickets. Is there any other locations where I can find them? Thanks.
My husband is a heavy user of Converse- shoes, and likes also to find some models not sold in here. I´ve heard there is a huge Converse store in NY and the shoes are cheaper than in here, but with Google I will find 4 addresses. So is there one witch is the biggest?
We are 4 people from Norway visiting New York late this week. We are looking into special activities to do in New York. Such as zip-lining from skyscraper to skyscraper (no idea if that actually exist) or something like that. For some of us its the first time in NY - we would like to not to the standard tourist stuff. Any suggestions?
The hotel address is 764 4th Avenue. Someone allready told us to take train to Jamaica, Queens from airport, and then take LIRR from there. I don´t find anything named LIRR in my guidebook (updated at 2014, so it´s brand new). Is it a metro or what, and does it go close to our hotel. Never been in THIS BIG city, and even we have traveled a lot, first time for ages I´m little nervous of getting from airport to hotel. We don´t want to use money to the taxi anyway.
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..)
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" ;)
I don´t find any tips in Vt about this place. Hasn´t anybody been there, or don´t I just found them? This web-page I did found, but no reviews. It sounds interesting. http://www.historicrichmondtown.org/
I noticed that Brooklyn flea is so far from our hotel in Brooklyn, that we would need to go to Manhattan and then back to Brooklyn to get there at our first whole day (and only whole weekend day). 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).
