Staying overnight near JFK

by cathy9510usa

Hi,

I was supposed to get a ride from my brother on arriving at JKF, but he'll be oit of the country, so I have to find a place to stay overnight for 1 night.

Obviously there are lots of expensive places, but can anyone suggest a convenient and affordable place (and clean, of course).

Thanks very much.

Cathy

where is it convenient for him to pick you up - near the airport, further out toward long island, or is he coming from westchester, new jersey, whereever?

I stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn which is one of the newer ones in the area.
The Double Tree is one of the older ones and doesn't get very high marks.
The area is kind of a wasteland, you can't walk to restaurants from any of the hotels as far as I know.

He's out of the country---I'm not being picked up at all. The next day I'll have to take a bus that leaves from JFK International Terminal 4.

OK, thanks, TexasDave. I'd better have something to eat at the airport before heading for the hotel.

The Hilton is a good one, though may be more than you consider affordable. Still I would recommend AGAINST the Days Inn at JFK. Quite noisy.

As for eating, depending on the time you get in, I'd opt for the hotel over the price of the airport.

Re: Staying overnight near JFK

by nicolaitan

texasdave is absolutely right about the restaurant situation. there is nowhere to eat near most of the hotels near the airport, just a burger king on rockaway parkway which is not the most attractive neighborhood in which to dine. as far as hotels one can choose from day's inn, best western, holiday inn, crowne plaza, comfort inn, and a few more of that type in the more economic range but they are actually quite expensive for what they are = captive audience. all offer shuttle service to federal circle where one boards the airtrain for no cost to the terminals.

Travel Tips for New York City

Look up!

by MissThing606

If you;ve never visted a US city, you will be in awe of the sky scrapers. so look up at them! who cares if you look like a tourist: you ARE a tourist. So enjoy it, because you won't seen them when you get home.

Just dont stop dead in the middle of the street in from of a native. It'll be just your luck to annoy a toxic New Yorker!

Feast of San Gennaro

by Shaft28

Late September in Ney York's Little Italy they hold the Feast of San Gennaro. Held on Mulberry Street between Canal and Houston Streets, the event lasts approximately 11 days and nobody leaves hungry. Street vendors serve up delicious sausage sandwiches and assorted Italian pastries (cannoli is everywhere!) - you'll want to, and should, sample everything.
Have to admit, saw the most beautiful women in New York the day we were there. My dad taking a picture of me next to the "Chicken Breast Sandwich" sign, me blocking the "Chicken" part. And to think, the old guy did it on accident.

CENTRAL PARK: Must explore...

by almapaul

CENTRAL PARK: Must explore this wonderful place... Aside from the beautiful landscaping and amazing views of the city, there's much much more to it. If your a people watcher, this is your place, finding a comfortable seat is simple and the charechters you will see and sometimes even meet pass on by in quick succession. The people, despite all of the warnings I was given before moving up here, I've found that the people I've met so far have been absolutly wonderful. It's like any other place the personalities are a bit stronger but aside from that I have met some really great people from all over the world.

Safety of Drinking Water in NYC

by jumpingnorman

Although there's no glaring sign in NY saying not to drink the tap water, we still just use bottled water.

But apparently the NYC Department of Environmental Protection (NYCDEP) rigorously tests the city's tap water and gives annual reports - DEP's water quality page at http://www.nyc.gov/html/dep/html/drinking_water/index.shtml

Major things you have to worry about with water:
1. lead - NY water found to be generally lead-free
2. bacteria - think Giardia and Cryptosporidium (Giardia has been problem in some places - I think I saw warning at Egypt about it. Also had a friend who got it while in Africa)
3. disinfectants or disinfectant byproducts. All NYC drinking water is treated with chlorine, fluoride (to help prevent tooth decay) and orthophosphate (to help prevent metals, including lead, from being released from plumbing). Chlorine reported to possibly cause cancer...

So, there you go. Try to see the report and see what the latest is (2008 report has several pages).

Best tap water I've had in my trips: Iceland and Norway...better tasting than bottled water!

Rockefeller Centre

by CandS

The Rockefeller Centre is very well known in NYC...we organised to meet a friend there and it was a great meeting place. If you want to see or go to the iceskating at the Rockefeller Centre then you will have to go after the first weekend in October. We missed out by just a few days...

We also missed out on seeing the Christmas tree at the Rockerfeller Centre...maybe next time...
