I want to leave my car at JFK for 10 days, and would like something cheaper than the $18/day that JFK long term parking requires, but have no way to differentiate between the different off-airport sites. I am soliciting recommendations or discommendations for specific sites based on actual experience.

Does anyone know the title of this book? The setting is a metal-poor prison planet where the people have segmented into vaguely feudal societies that trade with their guards in orbit for iron. The protagonist's society has developed really fast regeneration, with the side effect that some of them start growing extraneous body parts which are harvested and sold up to orbit. Another society has learned to experience time at any speed, and yet a third has no particular super-powers but is the wealthiest of them all because they've got fantastic scholars whose theorems and designs are sold for iron. I read this novel in a school library seven years ago, as a hardcover with a picture of a guy lifting himself out of a hole or well in the ground. [more inside]

Looking for old library featured on the CBC.

CBC Radio had a program on an old Quebec library (I think - in Montreal) - that dates from the 1800's and is supposed to be absolutely stunning. Something that people would envision being right out of Harry Potter. Unfortunately - I could not make out the name of the Library - and lot's of googling has come up with nothing. Does anyone here know if the Library in question?
