Gospel choirs  (1 Answer)

Hi, need some info about gospel choirs. I' ll be in NY at the 5th of June -it's a Sunday-, living in the Brooklyn area and I would like to go to a church to listen to a gospel choir. I don't want big fancy choirs, just a local church to stay through the service and listen to their music. Any suggestions will be highly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

Where to stay in Brooklyn and which airport is nearest?  (2 Answers)

I am looking to spend 2- nights in NYC, we were there last year and did lots so are just doing a couple of nights between other areas.

We are looking to do Brooklyn bridge and Ellis Island as we missed these last year and we want to go to Newburgh for a day (OCC and to visit a friend!).

Where can you recommend?

Last year we stayed at the Holiday Inn Manhattan View in Long Island City and it was perfect - great for everything.
This was suggested by someone on this forum so thought I'd ask for something similar in Brooklyn.
Need something not too expensive, walking distance to trains/subways etc.

My son is Autistic so he doesn't like crowds and the hotel last year was a great escape from the craziness of Manhattan!

Also which airport is closest to Brooklyn? We are flying to the west coast after NYC.

Moving to Brooklyn  (11 Answers)

Hello, I'm moving to Brooklyn next year, I am a 30 year old African American woman from California. Where are some safe, moderately affordable neighborhoods in Brooklyn to live? Since its just me I can live in a studio apartment, and I can pay up to about1200/month. Accessibility to good public transport is preferred, and safety is key since I want to live somewhere where I would feel safe if I have to return home late at night. Let me know where the best neighborhoods would be for affordability as well as safety.

Woman with *challenging* sense of direction asks for assistance! Toronto>>Brooklyn  (12 Answers)

Hello!

For some reason, I thought it would be a good idea to drive to Brooklyn. I'm not sure why this seemed reasonable at the time. I've driven to many places before, but do not know the many highways, tunnels, etc around NYC...and now that I see there are dozens of 'steps' in googlemap, know that I will get lost. And I do *not* want to get lost in the middle of a city-scape maze that I can't get out of.

Oh...and I don't have a GPS.

I'm looking for the best route from Toronto to Brooklyn (Eastern Parkway). I know the shortest route seems to go through Chinatown, but I can't imagine what the traffic would be like. I *can* imagine me holding onto the wheel with the grip of death, getting lost, and leaving my car at the side of the road as I jump on the 4/5/6.

Would any of you have taken this route before?

Do you have suggestions for the best route taking into consideration directionally challenged people, as well as knowing the most logical routes (i.e. going through lower Manhattan is probably not a great idea).

Your feedback is MOST welcome!

Thank you

Thanks in advance for your help!
