Eating out Christmas Day

by lesm291

We'll be in NYC for holiday over christmas (from Scotland) & looking for ideas for christmas day dinner. Staying in Times Square. 2 adults & 2 kids 18 & 13yrs. Don't want anything too over the top for kids, just somewhere with nice food & nice atmosphere where we can relax & have fun- any suggestions would be great,

Although this restaurant is not open Christmas Eve nor Christmas Day, perhaps you can get a taste of the Old Country with dinner at Highlands on another night of your visit to the Big Apple.

We ate there earlier this year; the atmosphere is lively and food is good.

Sorry, I don't really know the NYC area, but thought you might consider checking with your own hotel and some of the more popular, mid-level hotel chains near where you will be staying, to see what they offer. Here, the Marriott usually has a (free) kids program during Christmas and they offer Christmas dinner (not free)as well.

The only place nearby I would recommend for cosy family dining is St. Andrews. I'm not sure they're open on Christmas Day though. It's a Scottish pubby restaurant, but oddly enough, my favorite meal in there is their barbecued ribs, which are better than NY's barbecue restaurants. If they are open on Christmas day, they will surely offer a traditional menu.

Otherwise, I would suggest you get away from tourist-centric Times Square. I just browsed opentable.com, which most NYC restaurants use for reservations, and I see these places have availability on Christmas day. They're all family friendly places with good food and cosy ambience. You would definitely need to make a reservation though, so register with opentable.com (it's free).

Travel Tips for New York City

Travelers Cash Management

by AuTourDuMonde32

*This tip is from a response I gave to a VTer in the NYC forum who was concerned about getting his traveling money to NY with the most ease and least currency rate exposure

-

Yes~ Things have gone a little crazy with the Kroner this month.. I happen to think that the it will settle at 7 Kroner/ 1 dollar.. Anyway, I understand the nerves.. however, I question the efficency of using means other than an ATM.. Unless you will be here for more than one month, I don't think the currency fluctuation will effect you as much as exchange fee's, cc fee's, and AMEX/Traveler cheque fee's will.

Furthermore, the security, ease and convenience of using your ATM card is worth any loss in currency exchange that is likely to come about within the next month.

Point by point, let me first address travelers cheques..
They do provide relative security, surely more so than cash.
However, they can be difficult or atleast inconvenient to cash as you go about your daily travels. They also do charge a significant fee,in and out, and that does vary place-to-place but is overall comparable to that of your store-front currency exchange desk..(which usually is not a good one)
Security is your bonus with these.
One note to add.. AMEX offices vary in rates as well as banks.. do NOT use the AMEX window at MACY's in midtown manhattan.. they have the worst..worst..rates.

As for Credit Cards... they charge (often excessive) fee's not only for currency exchange, but "Foreign Transaction Fee"'s.. Security of a card is a plus.. but add that to the normal compounded interest that CC companies charge and you will CERTAINLY be spending more by the time the bill comes in the mail.. I use Credit Cards for big ticket items where receipt and documentation are important, such as Hotels, Car-Rentals and Tours.

As for Cash, you've pretty much have to be crazy to carry vast amounts of cash with you.. OK, this is'nt the NY of the 1980's.. and it is the safest big city in the USA (no joke!).. but there are schemes that happen, and there are many many ways you can misplace your cash.. Weither it be by carelessness, accident or design.. it happens.. I would not recommend putting all of your traveling assets into cash.

As for ATM's... First question I must ask you to ask yourself, is "what bank do I use">? Is it an international bank? (Citibank, HSBC).. Next one would be "Does my ATM card have a Mastercard, Maestro or Cirrus logo on it">? (either the back or front)">?.. These are two very important factors.. If you deal an internationaly recognized bank, I would talk to someone at your local office and ask them what options they have for cash withdrawl and dispursal over-seas. Maybe you can withdraw directly from your account in NY, timing when the Kroner is best.. If things are looking good, the one-time wire fee of (usually) $30 may be efficient for a large withdrawl... Secondly, there are some bank cards (ATM cards) which are NOT accepted all over the world.. A card with any of (but not limited to) the above mentioned logo's (MC,Maestro,Cirrus) will be accepted anywhere in the world, and this ensures that your ATM method will be effective.

With all of those factors in mind,
I would suggest that you perhaps do a mix of both.. Take your trading sense and put it to use.. "Hedge"!~ Do a 60,20,20 mix.. 60% on your ATM/bank..20% in travelers cheques.. and 20% in cash... Saving your Credit Card purchases for the big-ticket expenses (hotels,cars,etc.)
This minimizes risk all around, and considering that you are not trying to play with the money for profit, risk is your overall concern. Balance your traveling-assets in the above said manner, and you will surely be a happy, secure and efficient traveler!

P.S.
In anycase, I would recommend you get a travelers money belt.. not only does it keep your money safe in the event of a robbery (as unlikely as that may be), but it also encouraged and reinforces organization and constant physical accountabilty of your valuable documents and cash-related assets.

P.P.S.
It'd be nice of you to build you pages.. Perhaps with some Norway tips/photos or some from your NYC trip?! Advice should be a two-way street!
Have a great stay here buddy!

New York Stock Exchange

by Xefian

With so much attention being given to terrorist threats ,I thought I'd pay a visit to the New York Stock Exchange area...Its located in the same general area as the World Trade Centers...on (D-uh) Wall St. ...I found that the vicinity HAS changed in light of recent warnings. the Nearby street is blocked off ,there are ominous looking soldiers carrying large guns near the entrance, a heavy police presence...some sort of construction is going on directly in front...and LOTS of tourists were taking pictures( just like me)...This is a fairly nice area of NYC ,if one exits the subway at City Hall...one sees a nice park,some imposing governmental buildings ,the famous J and R Music/Computer World Stores take up the block on Park Row ...circle around the J&R stores and enter and almost European Pedestrian street...follow it and you'll end up at the Stock Market....also within walking distance ,the South St. Port area with big old ships,and a good view of the Brooklyn bridge.
Chinatown can be reached by walking towards the imposing governmental buildings
and cutting through the little passageway by the Moynahan Federal Building...when you see Columbas Park you've reached the fringes of Chinatown...

by carmengloria

En invierno aprovechar mas que nunca los museos. Caminar por Central Park despues que nevo. Sentarse en un cafe y observar a la gente poruna ventana.
En primavera, caminar por las orillas de los rios. Ir al Central Park y ver como toda la gente se tira al sol apenas aparecen 2 rayos e incluso toman sol en bikini con apenas 18 grados! Correr o patinar en el parque. Visitar los 'Cloisters' que es la seccion medieval del Museo Metropolitano.
En vernano, una vez mas el Central Park y sus numerosos conciertos al aire libre, irse a tomar un trago en 'Alphabet City' en el East Village o en Soho
En otono volver a Central Park y jugar con las hojas de multiples colores que caen d elos arboles. Por si no se ha notado lo que prefiero en NUeva York es el Central Park y como la vida de los neoyorquinos gia entorno a las actividades que ahi se desarrollan. Es lo que mas extranare cuando me vaya. Pero tambien la divesidad cultural y la libertad con que todo el mundo actua. La tranquilidad y facilidad con que uno recorre la ciudad a pie y deambula por sus barios cambiando de mundo cada 10 calles!

First, you must provide a good sport shoes and prepare you to walk and walk all the day.

In NY you must go to a Gospel mass in Harlem
Of course you must see Empire State, World Trade Center, Liberty Statue..., but the most important is walk by the streets looking the people

Watch a Show for free!

by Vintom

It is possible to get free tickets to various TV shows, you just have to be there at the right time and perhaps answer some kind of questionaire...We were offered some tickets, but being we did not have a clue either to the question or the show, we gave it a miss!
