    • Traveling to NYC for the first time.

      by TexasForever Online Now Nov 10, 2016 at 10:04 AM

      This is all an impromptu trip for me (I fly out tomorrow). But I am wondering what are some of the must do's that I can fit into a weekend? I'm not really trying to go to the ESB or the Statue of Liberty; I'm more wanting to catch a pick up game at Rucker Park and visit the MoMA, things with more culture and where I can meet people and interact. I'd love to see SNL if at all possible though. I am a 25 year old man, if that helps any, lol. Any suggestions are extremely welcomed. Cheers!

      horse and carridge ride around central park

      by paddington28 Online Now Nov 9, 2016 at 7:09 AM

      Hi there everyone.

      Off to the big apple in April,this will be the 3rd time i have visited New York,so i have visited everything i want to see,but this will be my girlfriends 1st time.
      One of the things on her list to do is,horse and carridge around central park,So a couple of questions.

      1: Do they go around the whole park,or is there an option only to do some of it.
      2: roughly how long does it take for the trip.
      3: probably sounds like a daft question,but are the horses generally treated well?

      by MapleMoose Online Now Sep 20, 2016 at 2:51 PM

      I have been to the 911 Memorial before the museum opened. I am wondering what the process is these days. If I have a museum ticket marked 10 a.m. for example, and want to spend a bit of time at the Memorial what are my options? Is the security line still before the memorial? Is there a separate entrance to the museum with its own security line? How much time do I need as a buffer for a Friday morning? Just trying to find out where I go first and how much time to allow. I can't find it on the museum website.

      by asli90 Online Now Sep 2, 2016 at 4:44 AM

      Hi I am visiting NYC in the last week of this month for about two weeks.

      I need some suggestions as a solo traveler from VT members,
      (1) I checked my provider to get me mobile roaming service for during my stay in NYC, but its really pricey.
      How & where to get local sim cards in NYC (something like visitors sim card) with internet service. what are the prices and charges?

      (2) While my stay in NYC I am also planning to visit either Washington DC or Chicago for 3 days, should I book my tickets in advance right now itself or I can easily book once I am there (by air or train) what are average prices for tickets?

      (3) I am planning to book my stay near to Times Square but I found the hotels are pricey whereas I am getting good deals at airbnb.com, has anyone stayed at a place booked through this website? is it genuine and safe?

      Thanks everyone in advance and appreciate your responses.

      Border policy at JFK

      by GUYON Online Now Aug 12, 2016 at 12:00 AM

      Hello

      At our last stay in USA (Miami November 2015) we crossed quickly the police control because we scanned our passports on a devoted machine which delivered a photo of our documents with the note "authorized". The major part of the travelers had not the precious notice and had been obliged to queue.

      I guess it was because we visited USA several times before..

      Is this kind a routine also in force at JFK Airport for foreign visitors ?
