Getting to Toronto from New York on a Saturday morning

Alternative routes to Toronto for the Buskerfest. I'm in New York, I want to leave here early on Saturday morning. The trains are booked, the coaches take 13 hours and the planes are far too expensive. Can I get a train to somewhere else that's not too ridiculous, where I can change to get to Toronto? The Amtrak lady wasn't very helpful on the phone. Is my only hope a late bus (or late train) on Friday night? :(

Getting to the Shawangunks from The Poughkeepsie Metro-North Station

I'm planning a day trip to the Shawangunks tomorrow. Can anyone recommend a car service in Poughkeepsie, NY? The goal is to get from the Poughkeepsie Metro-North station to New Paltz and Minnewaska State Park. What sorts of fares are reasonable for these trips? Can I catch a cab at the park itself? Is there a bus connection between the park and New Paltz? In closing: Is there anything else I should know? Many thanks in advance.

Buffalo University: Where to stay?

Looking for good, cheap accommodation in Buffalo, NY. My partner is visiting to work at Buffalo Uni for about 7 days in late September. They've offered to organise accommodation in a Holiday Inn at $98 a night. This feels a little steep. We'd like to shop around a bit, perhaps look at alternatives other than a hotel/motel. Perhaps a student "sleep in my spare room" scheme or something. Advice much appreciated. [more inside]

Ideas for fun or luxury gift delivery for best friend in NYC

I'm looking for suggestions for a gift to be delivered to my friend in New York City. I'm out of the loop: what neat thing do all the cool kids in NY want these days? For example, I think Kiehl's was all the rage a couple of years ago, and Philosophy body washes before that. She is 30, single, lives in Brooklyn, enjoys good food and drink, likes fun personal care products, is very busy at work, is very hip, elegant and quite intelligent. I know she reads things like DailyCandy and Flavorpill (I had a look there but nothing caught my eye). [more inside]
