After crossing the Henry Hudson Bridge without an E-ZPass, you normally should receive a toll bill within 30 days. However, you might not have received one if the address of your vehicle registration is not your current address, or if the equipment at the toll plaza was malfunctioning when you drove through. If you didn't receive a toll bill, you should ...

Aside Greyhound (costing 30-60USD), Rome2rio shows various other bus options including Yo Bus costing 20USD. There is also a bus combination using BoltBus which supposedly costs 19-24USD. MegaBus can get you there for as low as 11USD one way depending on what day of the week you're traveling and how far in the future you book your ticket. The bus trip takes ...

It very much depends where you want to be for the drop. Supernova hosts a party which is technically in Times Square, just high up, and ages 18+ may attend, or 16+ with an adult. The Times Square Family Pass lets a family of any ages, although drinks will differ depending on age. Also you'd need to be with your family, presumably. The Wikihow article also ...

Nothing in the Port Authority's JFK parking rates and information page says anything about parking being reserved for passengers; certainly, I have never seen or heard of anyone being asked to present a boarding pass or other proof that you are there to do business at the airport. But if you're coming from Virginia to go to a show in Manhattan, parking at ...

If you're willing to travel a bit farther, iPlay America in Freehold, NJ, has an iRide Plus Pass Package which offers unlimited go-karting for a day for $29.95. NJ Transit buses will get you there in an hour and a half from Port Authority terminal. Finally, ...

New York City subway service has only been interrupted once for snow in 110 years, and the decision to do so was criticized when the snowstorm actually dropped far less snow than expected. It was also interrupted for Hurricane Sandy, back in 2012, but that was actually a well-advised closure. You're extremely unlikely to see a system-wide service ...

Nope, not unless you have a time machine. There used to be an elevator, but it doesn't exist anymore. You can walk over the island, though, then take the subway back to the island. More info: http://rioc.ny.gov/transportation.htm

It's a holiday shopping weekend, so you should expect traffic in any city concentrated around shopping areas such as malls, as well as heavier traffic on arterial roads. And Manhattan of course will be Manhattan, but you won't be there long. If you just follow Google Maps it will advise you to take the Holland Tunnel out of the city, which ought to be light ...

For just watching the ball drop and the festivities taking place in Times Square from within Times Square there is no age minimum. You just show up and go through all the police barricades to the "pen" where they put you. You cannot leave and return to the same place, if you leave you have to go to the latest "pen" the police set up. It's quite chaotic ...

The NYPD does not have a Choir. MacGowan wrote the song having never actually been to New York. For the production of the music video, the NYPD Pipe and Drum Band was hired instead, and they sang the only song they all knew; the Mickey Mouse Club Anthem. The Pipe and Drum band primarily plays at police-related functions, including funerals and fundraisers. ...

Cameras for personal use should be fine at the Empire State Building, but tripods, professional cameras, etc., will probably not get past security screening. Nor will their cases, your carry-on luggage... From the Empire State Building official FAQ: The items listed are not permitted in the Empire State Building. Do not carry any of these items into the ...

Another option is http://us.megabus.com/. It is cheaper and faster compared to greyhound. And it's less than $20.00 . It's way better than greyhound in my opinion.

You have several options to buy tickets: Online via the official website ahead of time. This will be the safest option and allows you to pick exactly the seats you want. When paying via credit card there isn't any real inconvenience dealing with currency conversion. Online via StubHub. I have used StubHub many times and find the site reliable and safe. ...

The price you get before the ride is an estimate, it depends on the traffic and route. It is close most of the time but for sure it will also never be 100% accurate. Actually, when you request a fare quote in the app, it will show this exact message: Fares may vary due to traffic, weather, and other factors. Estimate does not include discounts or ...

I've made this drive 3 times already and depending on what your driving depends on gas cost. If you fill up before you leave its 3 additional full tanks to Long Island 20hrs on avg because there's always one area of super bad traffic. We saved our stops for food/gas around meal times or in case of emergency but driving 75 seemed to be our choice of speed, 80 ...

There are sightseeing buses but they hardly leave Manhattan, much less stop at JFK. However, if you are very adventurous you could still do it. You won't have a lot of time, but can see a few of the most popular sights: Either take the subway (metro) 1 hour for $8 to Manhattan, or a taxi half an hour (outside rush hours!) for $60. Go to Times Square, ...

The Queensbridge Projects are located in Long Island City, and this means you can communicate directly with the cognizant community board for travel advice and other matters arising in that area.

I'm not familiar with regulations and expectations in Clinton Hill, but in general for Brooklyn: Is this legal? Yes, and it turns out, necessary. Is it safe? Different neighborhoods have different levels of safety, and I'm not sure how to compare to where you live in Ecuador, but most people who own a vehicle in a residential neighborhood do it. ...

No. The only way to get from one terminal to another is to exit the terminal and take the air train or a shuttle bus. A possible exception to this is for Delta, which operates in Terminals 2 and 4. They apparently have a bus that connects the airside areas of these terminals. See the map here: ...

Often car rentals in the USA are cheaper at airports than elsewhere. If you find that, you might want to take public transit to a NJ airport. The smaller rental companies (even with strange names like payless and rentawreck) can be less expensive than the large rental companies, but you will get more uniformly good service from the larger companies. (I ...

The Northeast Corridor railroad connects Penn Station and Newark Airport, and the train trip is less than a half hour. Options include Amtrak and New Jersey Transit. NJT has more trains and is cheaper, while Amtrak has fewer stops (actually, looking at the map that might not be true -- it appears that the NJT train doesn't stop until Newark). In either case ...

If those times are on weekdays, traffic will be very bad. I would recommend the train, connecting to a NJ Transit train to Manhattan. The reverse when you leave.

There are several agents selling freighter journeys. Some of them do advertise one-way crossings but even if they don't you can always ask. In any case, you need to contact them, explain your needs and see if they can find a ship for you. When you are ready to book, they will require a payment and some paperwork (typically a medical form). It's not like a ...

@CSJC I built a tool to help you find exactly what you're looking for here: www.cleverlayover.com It will search all A->B + B->C combinations to find a cheaper way to get from A->C. Looking into the data, it is actually quite effective: 33% of searches have some form of savings, and the savings average > $300 when they exist. Try it out and let me know what ...

I saw this question put to the Airbnb Facebook page... They were referred to a page containing this... Source: https://www.airbnb.co.uk/support/article/449?hc_location=ufi The page also advises you to contact the consulate or 'legal authority' in the country to which you are travelling. The French consulate in New York has a general enquiry ...

Obviously, finding secret bare knuckle clubs is not easy. Also, remember you are talking about a small number of gatherings in a city of 8 million people. It's like finding a needle in a haystack. Also, remember that in most cases these are clubs, meaning the members have selected each other by various criteria, so random strangers might not be welcome. The ...

If you don't want to stay in the airport until morning, you can continue traveling through the night. The linchpin of this plan is Amtrak Train 65, which departs New York Penn Station at 3 AM and arrives at Philadelphia 30th Street Station at 4:35 AM. Schedule here. The "transit" option of Google Maps shows an itinerary that goes as follows: Airtrain ...

I have a very similar JFK layover coming up - I've researched the question a bit, and here's what I could find: There's a site, https://www.between9and5.com/ , which lets you search for "Day Rates" at hotels near airports. There are a few options listed for JFK at around $75 for a 10am-to-3pm stay. Apparently you can find the best "day rates" by calling ...

When leaving JFK, get the free Airtrain shuttle to the Lefferts Blvd station stop then get off and get the Q10 bus to Ozone Park Lefferts Blvd subway station where you can get the A train to the city. Transfers are free between bus and subway when you use a metro card. Do the reverse to get to the airport.
