      by surfepic Online Now Mar 18, 2016 at 6:48 AM

      Hello travellers! I am going to visit New york soon. I just need to know...
      ...Is it allowed to roller skate the main avenues and streets of New york city?
      ...Are there any "special lanes" to do it?
      I will be there for a short time so it would be great to do it this way.
      Hope you can give me some advice...and thanks a lot..

      Family travelling New York

      by ZohraK Online Now Mar 10, 2016 at 5:16 AM

      Hi everyone!
      In July 2016, my family (parents + sister of 16 and I'm 19 myself) will be visiting New York for 5 days (in Brooklyn). I have some questions concerning activities and time-distance relations, which I hope you will be able to answer. Does anyone have any idea how long it takes to get from the Bushwick neighbourhood to Central Park by metro during rush hour? I'm hearing very different opinions on that... Also, does anyone have experience with a Big Apple Greeter? Good guide/fun tour/unusual highlights? Another question: how is Coney Island? My father would love to go there, but since we are only staying in NYC for 5 days, is it really that much of an attraction to go there? If yes, should we take an entire day for that?
      Lastly, a question not necessarily concerning NYC: where do we find a big Walmart/Target to 1) have the experience of shopping in a giant supermarket and 2) have the opportunity to take home nice American candy? We are also visiting the West coast, so maybe in this area? I don't know if you can find superstores like Walmart in the heart of the city, or more in the suburbs...
      Thanks in advance!

    • Airport change - JFK to LaGuardia

      by jeanfinney Online Now Dec 5, 2015 at 12:42 AM

      Hi - I am contemplating gruesome realities in terms of plane tickets for a very long trip. The cheapest - are the cheapest for a reason. The cheapest one involves a change from JFK to LaGuardia, a risky move (long immigration lines, weather, traffic) - I have found a couple of companies who serve the route - Is it necessary to reserve a seat in advance or can one simply grab a bus at the airport? In that case, any recommendations? It seems the price is only $14, that is great. And they claim that it takes 45-60 minutes. However, weather and traffic could change that, I imagine. Any wise thoughts Thanks, Jean

      Hey guys!
      I'll be arriving NYC on December 15th at JFK. I have to take a bus at the Port Authority Bus Terminal. But I want to see the Rockefeller's Christmas Tree before (it's my dream) because I'm not sure if i'm going back to NYC during the holidays. So I planned to take the E train and leave at the 5 Av/53 St station. Then I'll walk. But the problem is that I'll be carrying my huge luggage. Is it dangerous? Is it a stupid idea?
      Thanks

      Hi New Yorkers. I would be grateful for your help.
      I will be arriving in New York on 21st December in the afternoon and leaving on the evening of the 28th.
      I will require a single trip from Jamaica into Manhattan on the E train to get to my hotel and then I want an 7 day card that I will use from the 22nd until my departure on the 28th.
      My question is, can I just take my single trip card and get it loaded at a booth for 7 days on the 22nd or is the 7 day card a different type? Many thanks. Roy.

We are staying on East 50th Street. My wife isn't a fan of fireworks so probably wouldn't enjoy Central Park and we do not want to spend a whole day standing in Times Square. We are young at heart mid 50's non-clubbing types and would like to go somewhere for a nice meal with possibly live music.Any suggestions would be very welcome. Thank you.

      Hi,

      Having been there before I'm now taking my two daughters to New York city staying in Washington heights.
      I'm looking for suggestions outside the big touristy attractions to do with them and also the best places to eat. We are going in February as the kids want to go ice skating and the cold doesn't bother with us travelling from Scotland. We will be using the subway as this is how I travelled before and can't fault it.
