I am a tad nervous about driving around there. I am looking for something pretty easy to get to. I assume you flew in, Nerfy?

I don't thinking driving around in Queens would be that different than suburban New Jersey. But, I am also a nervous city driver, so make of that what you will.

Yes, we flew in. We got 7 day unlimited subway passes. You can also get pay-per-ride passes and load $ on them. The break even point is 13 rides. For us, it was so nice to just hop on the subway whenever we wanted and not sweat it. There's lots of good information on subway riding on the NYC Trip Advisor Forum. It may seem intimidating at first, but very easy once you take a few rides.

My other reason for thinking about staying in NJ was cost. You must remember that I pay almost 2x as much as you guys, due to our low dollar.

I would shop around. I bet you will find hotel rates aren't so much better in NJ to make it worth the hassle. Besides, who goes to Jersey on purpose?

I like Times Square, but it's definitely not the be-all, end-all. Take her to a Broadway show. What an amazing father-daughter experience. And the Freedom Tower and 9/11 Museum. And the USS Intrepid. And Sbarro's Pizza!

Hey Bri (look at me- remembering markdown) I was hoping to hear from you. I have been shopping around as much as possible. Like every NYC tourist, I'm looking for a place to stay that's cheap, but conveniently close to the action. One problem I've encountered is that there is too much information. I just want I visit one site that says "stay here, (a place with lots of parking) and go to these places,and choose this metro option, and here's a bunch of discounts" but wouldn't ya know it, that site doesn't exist, although tripadvisor is the next best thing.

I want to do all the things you mentioned except the USS Intrepid. I want to go to the park, and Rockefeller Center and a bunch of other places. I'm thinking it's gonna be three days in the city.

We are going to Toronto in a couple of weeks. It's like you and I are exchange students!

D! Will you be driving through Upstate NY then? (Read: by Jinx's house and then by the Anque house?) The Finger Lakes are beautiful during the summer!

I'mjustsayin'.

From PEI, I'm guessing he will miss us.

So he misses us...interesting...sometimes Canadians say more in their pauses than in their words...

Yeah, I figured. I was just trying to 'open up' the possibilities. It would add a lot of time to their trip though.

I don't have much to offer in the way of NYC advice. I've only been there a few times to attend the Maker Faire and each time we didn't do any of the cool NYC-type stuff. We always stayed at a hotel within walking distance to the fair. They seemed to have reasonable rates. That was in Flushing though.
