My husband and I are headed to my favorite city for one day. We are arriving at 10 am and have tickets to see Jimmy Fallon at 3:30ish and a show after that. Morning is not a problem, but since we have to head back early the next morning we've decided not to get a hotel room and just enjoy the city that never sleeps. I think dinner after the show is on our list, but any recommendations on what we could do from about midnight till 3 in the morning? We aren't "club" folks, but are pretty open to suggestions. Coffee shops, maybe?
A couple of years ago, in front of the Portland Hotel (I think the hotel no longer bears that name ) in Times Square there was a wonderful take out buffet. Does this take buffet still existe? If not, are there other places for take out buffets in the Times Square area? Thanks! Helene
What public transport options are available to commute to midtown Manhattan?
Hello all - I'll be in NYC for a few days at the end of October. Staying in Midtown.I have been to NYC before about 8 years ago and seen the main tourist sights. This visit is for work and I expect I'll be in meetings/dinner with client until about 10pm, but as I am unlikely to be back any time soon, I really want to make the most of my time in NYC. Does anyone have any suggestions for things I can do/see from 10pm for a couple of hours. I have ESB and Times Sq on the list as these are open late, but beyond that am struggling. Any museums or bus tours still open/going on at that time?
Thanks in advance for your help. Cheers, P.
We like Georgia Peach jubilation signing, jazz, clap along and Dixie Jazz with lots of atmoshere. Does anyone know Arthur's Tavern on Groove Street? Need réservations? If not, any other suggestions for that type of music in the evening...8-9-10 ? Thanks!
Me and my sister will be Staying in Manhattan for a week (age 27 & 31). We're travelling from England, UK and want to experience a traditional Thanksgiving Turkey Dinner with all the Necessary trimmings i.e. Yams, Cranberries & Pumpkin pies etc...
Can anyone recommend anywhere??
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?
I want to take a tour bus on a downtown loop for 1 day in NYC. All of them have great reviews and horrible reviews. I can't figure out which one that I should take. Any suggestions?
Also, this is going to be the Saturday before Thanksgiving. Will this be an extremely busy time? Should I buy the tickets now?
do you have any "special" tips for me what I can do after visiting Empire State building on a friday?. I thought going to Madison Square Garden but I guess it's not that spectecular.
Background: I plan to do something special for my longtime gf and in my opinion Madison Square Garden (or Macy's what is near by) is not that special.
In the evening (5pm) we will eat at a high class restaurant (Jean Georges) but I am looking for more events like this without spending several hundreds of dollars. I just want something what is a little bit relaxing and/or romantic.
The other places of interests (statue of liberty, world trade, Central Station etc.) I plan to visit on other days.
Thank you for your help.
I am looking for some of the best food in NY. We are going to stay full 4 days and on 1 day we want to eat at a really fancy restaurant. Eleven Madison Park is unfornunately completly booked out. What can you recommend for a "fancy" restaurant dinner and are there any special food alternatives I have to try during the "normal" days (doesn't need to be fancy at all. Just tasty ;D)
Now that I have my hotel question answered, time for the good stuff. We are taking our grands (age 3 and 5) to see all the Christmas greatness in the city. I've been before, but not with the littles. Any of you have guides/suggestions on great things to do with them? We will have 3 days and, of course, the tree, window displays and Santa at Macy's are already on the list.
I will be arriving in New York at JFK airport on Tuesday morning the 26th August. I will depart again from La Guardia airport at 17h00 to Des Moines. My question is, what can I do (sightseeing, breakfast/lunch) in the time available and still be in time to catch my flight out?
Any suggestions will be much appreciated!
Hi everyone. I just have a couple of questions about NYC around Christmas time.
I am from New Zealand and my mother who is 76 has ALWAYS wanted to visit NYC around Christmas time to see if it's like she has seen on the tv, i.e. Santa on each street corner and all the decorated stores and the snow etc.
Now she is not very energetic so I am just wondering how easy it is to get around the city and where would be a good place to stay. And would November be a good time to visit for her to get the Christmas experience that she wants?
Thanks in advance.
Can we enter a Church on a Sunday morning to heau some good southern spiritual in Harlem? Any suggestionswhere to go to listen to the rejoicing without being trapped in tens of tours tourists laden with cameras? We are looking for something authenic,,,and family atmosphere if possible. Any tips would be most welcomed! Thanks Helene
A bunch of us, meaning 8 of us :-), are going to NYC in late October. It's a budget trip.
We're seeking advise on the accommodation in NYC. Thinking of getting a daily rate apartment to house all of us. Would that be feasible? Are there budget apartments to rent on a daily basis within the town center? Any recommendation would be great! Alternatives are also welcome.
Thanks in advance for an advise given.
You all have a great day...
Just wondering if I should gamble and risk booking a hotel on Hotwire when I'm not guaranteed if the hotel will have a parking lot or not. Nervous about where to put my car once I arrive. I've got an 8-hour drive til I arrive to NYC and would love to know if I should risk it or not because I'd also like to save money for hotels.

I have never been to NYC. I will be in Washington DC on business next week. My business concludes early Thursday afternoon, yet my flight out is not until Friday at 1pm est ... out of Dulles. I will have a rental car to get from DC to NYC. I plan on maybe 6 - 8 hours in NYC before needing to make the drive back.
During this extremely short visit, I would like to see (if possible) Central Park, the Empire State Building, Times Square, and Ground Zero.
Looking for locals to tell me if this can be done ... and what is the best method to do so?
Where to park (even potentially outside of Manhattan and public transport in)?
Parking cost expected
Where to begin? Start north at the Park and work south to Ground Zero? Vice Versa
What public transport is best to execute this route? A mix
Would like to know as specific as possible - subway train lines to take? Buses (not opposed to walking but want to maximize short time)
Essentially looking for can this be done, and as someone who has never been there, what specifically is the best way to navigate to as many locations as possible. Not looking to do tours ... just go and see what i can see.
I can get a really good rate at the Newark Airport Marriott for an upcoming trip. A LOT cheaper that in the city, but is it worth the trouble of getting back and forth? There will be 4 of us, but 2 are small children. What price point makes it worth the effort?
