    • First time visit to New York - hotel accommodation

      New York City Jul 12, 2016 at 4:56 AM

      Hi. My hubby and I are travelling to New York for the first time in October and are planning on staying for 4 nights, 5 days, during the week. We are looking for hotel accommodation which is central, affordable, clean/modern has free wifi and maybe a breakfast included in their stay package (like an executive 3 star, if that's possible, hahahaha) - we don't want to pay extortionate amounts on accommodation (as the cash will be used for shopping instead!) but yet would like comfortable, clean accommodation where we can get a little peace and quiet during our down time - I'm not asking for much, am I? any suggestions or personal recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    • 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.
