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 ...

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 ...

Karts Indoor Raceway on Long Island offers unlimited racing Tuesdays between 6pm to 10pm for $52. 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 ...

As it is believed to be a bacterial infection, early-stage Lyme disease is treated with 10–21-day course of antibiotics, with oral doxycycline, amoxicillin, and cefuroxime axetil usually prescribed. If it affects the heart or nervous system, ceftriaxone or penicillin may be administered intravenously instead. Lyme disease does not necessarily require ...

As you said, sporting events are usually your best bet for a guaranteed National Anthem. While they (usually) aren't free, if you're not picky about your sport, there's probably more than a few that you can get for relatively cheap. Soccer (football) is in mid-season right now so tickets probably aren't that expensive and I know that there're at least two ...

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 ...

It is likely that the establishment first offering pizza in NYC is now lost in the mists of time. Having said that, you can check out Lombardi's Pizza, 22 Spring Street (at the corner of Spring and Mott; also a one-time boundary of New York's Little Italy). Lombardi's has been operating on the same location since 1905, and for a pizza house, that's truly ...

The "Express" here is for express buses, which serve parts of the "outer" boroughs that are not well served by subways. These buses have a higher fare. Express trains in the subway system do not have a higher fare. Your fare card is checked when you swipe it in the turnstile to enter the system. Once you're in, you're in. You can stay as long as you ...

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.

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. The board is called, "Community Board 1", and their contact details are Queens Community Board 1 45-02 Ditmars Boulevard LL Suite 125 Astoria, NY 11105 Phone: ...

It means the station is closed. In this case, the station was closed after it was destroyed on September 11, 2001, and it has not yet been reopened. I believe it will be reopened sometime in the next few years as construction is completed on the site.

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: ...

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.

Maybe. You'll have to check with the particular bar where you want to go. Whether minors are allowed could depend on many factors, including: The business's own policy (they can keep minors out if they want) Whether they serve food The time of day Whether you are with a parent or another person over 21 As one example, I used to frequent a particular ...

@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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

You mention the NPS website. Also on that same page, it states: Due to its popularity, access to the pedestal is limited and requires reservations. Statue Cruises is the official source for pedestal reservations as well as the company that provides ferry transportation to the island. Advanced reservations may be made online or by telephone. So ...

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 ...

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 ...
