      Looking for a recommendation for a restaurant for dinner with clients on Wednesday. Looking for someplace a bit quiet and not packed/rushing with the theater crowd. They will be at the Hilton (54th & 6th) so something near by would be great. Prefer "neutral" food - American, Italian? Thanks!

      Border policy at JFK

      New York City 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 ?

      Hi Guys,

      I am travelling for a 10 days vacation to US by the end of this September. I will be travelling first time to the states and I have no idea where to go and which city to visit. I am willing to stay at a reasonable hotel as I wish to spend my maximum time outing & come to hotel only to sleep. My plan includes visiting famous monuments or places / watching movies / some museums / having good massages / enjoy some good night life without restrictions. I wont be using a car so I plan to walk maximum and use public transport when necessary.

      I have been studying over google but I am confused between LA/LAS VEGAS/NYC/California.

      Can members over here help me decide over above places or suggest some good city to visit as per my requirements, Basically I am Looking for a reasonable place where thing are cheap and not too pricey.

      Also can you advise if I could get a visitor sim card with internet in the city or at the airport and what are the charges for it? Or should l I get a roaming service from my provider?

      Thanks in advance

    • Roosevelt Island, Brooklyn Bridge and Pod Hotel Questions

      New York City Jul 7, 2016 at 4:47 PM

      I'd like to go to Roosevelt Island mostly because of the tram but partly because of the lighthouse. Is it true that there's a shuttle bus that goes around the island? I read there was, and it charges a quarter. Does it go all the way to the tip of the island where the lighthouse is? Does it go close to the tram stop and close to the subway stop? About how far of a walk would it be from the closest subway stop in Manhattan to the tram - just a block or two, or more?

      To walk across Brooklyn Bridge, about how far do you need to walk to get to the entrance for the bridge walkway from the closest subway station?

      Lastly, if anyone has stayed at either the Pod 39 or Pod 51 or preferably both, is one better than the other in terms of proximity to a subway station? It looks like Pod 51 on 51st Street (I think) is closer, but only line 6 runs from that close station, meaning we'd likely have to transfer once or twice to get to most places we want to go. Some transfer tunnels in some subways are pretty long, so I'm wondering if it's worth choosing one Pod hotel over the other simply because one is closer to a station than the other. Pod 39 has Grand Central Terminal near by, which I gather is pretty useful, but it's at least a few blocks farther away than Pod 51 is to the subway stop up there. We're older folks and can't do as much walking around as we used to, thus the questions.

      Hotel dilemma

      New York City Jun 13, 2016 at 4:27 AM

      Visiting NYC soon. I'm deliberating between two hotels, Hotel 3232 and The Evelyn. Both just around the same area and similar prices. One vague concern about The Evelyn is the renovations underway and lots of comments about tiny rooms and long waits for the one working lift. The rooms don't appear to have a kettle or coffee maker and although they offer free coffee and tea in the lobby I don't fancy having to wait 10 - 15 mins each way just to get a coffee to take to our room in the morning or after a long day sightseeing. Anyone with knowledge of either hotel have an opinion please? Thanks in advance.
