cheap mode of transport  (7 Answers)

Hi,
My daughter and I are travelling to Manhatten for 5 nights and I am was wondering what would be the cheapest mode of 'above ground' transportation from JFK to our accommodation in Harlem. We will be using the Metro during our visit, but on the day of our arrival we thought it would be a great idea to see the city on the drive from the airport to our place in Harlem...any suggestions are appreciated!

Travel by Subway from Times Square to Yankee stadium  (4 Answers)

Have tickets for the evening game on Friday Sept 5th.
Any thoughts on how long before game time we should catch the subway? we are staying in a hotel a block or so from Times square. I expect large crowds, should I also expect huge lineups at security, or do they handle things fairly well?
If we arrived there a couple hours early is there something to see /do near the stadium?
Many thanks.

Manhattan birthday dinner  (5 Answers)

Hi, my husband and 4 children are travelling to Manhattan for 4 nights in July 2010. My son turns 14 on the trip and I would love some ideas on a great restaurant that would be appealing to my son and also our 3 daughters ages 10, 12 and 15. We are from Australia so have no idea about dining out in NYC. We are staying at a pretty central location to everything, close to the museum of natural history ( i think ) and also the Beacon theatre. Any ideas would be appreciated?
Cheers

Is this location okay for an apartment in Manhattan?  (8 Answers)

Friends and I are travelling to New York for Christmas and New York.
We have found an apartment but are not sure of the location, having not been to New York and not sure about the winter weather.

The apartment is located on West 42nd St between 11th and 12th avenues.

Is this location okay for shops and places to eat within walking distance, and is 3 - 4 blocks far to walk in winter to catch the subway? Not sure if this walk will be hard in snow after sightseeing all day.

Also, the location seems to be close to major roads, is this likely to be noisy? Are the roads very busy?

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Can you help me find someone in Manhattan?

Some years ago, whilst on holidays in Turkey, I met and befriended a family staying at the same Hotel. I know very little about them except that I am sure they have two deli's in Manhattan. I am visiting New York soon and would like to say hello.
As far as I can remember, he was Turkish, his wife was Swedish, and there were 3 children, two boys and a girl.
From memory, I seem to remember that he was one of the biggest importers of Olives in the USA?
We met at the Samara Hotel in Bodrum.
