Is it timing? New York Vacation Filter

My partner and I are going on holiday to New York from the 5th-11th November. Yay! It's a big trip for us for lots of reasons, including a couple of milestone birthdays, his being on the 7th which is why we're travelling then. What we didn't figure in was the NY Marathon being held on the day after we arrive, and something about an election or something on the 8th idk apparently I've been on Mars? So in addition to the usual questions I'd like advice on navigating these events please. [more inside]

Help me kill some time in Harlem

So I scored tickets to the Conan O'Brien show when he comes back to New York next month. The venue is the Apollo Theater. I need to get there early to pick up my tickets but instead of going back home and then returning for the show which is in the early evening, I'd like to spend a day in Harlem. I've already got the Studio Museum on my itinerary but I need some more ideas for places where I can kill some time. Also a good coffee shop would be appreciated. Thanks.

Spending four days in Austin. What to see, do and eat?

SO and I will be in Austin Tx from late on October 30 to early on November 3. We're staying close to downtown and we'll have a vehicle. We're not into the 20 something bar scene. We'd much rather listen to some music (blues and country) and eat some good food. Not really picky eaters, but at least one BBQ meal. Franklins is amazing, but we're not sure we want to line up for 3 hours. Any suggestions from the community?

How can I now see a map of all my Tripadvisor Saves?

Prior to the new update of the Tripadvisor app, I could open a saved location, zoom out, and then see the saved locations nearby. The new update destroyed this functionality. Is there any way for me to access a map of my saved locations? I like to plan a route among proximate sites, and I don't know how to do this.

Let's Talk Turkey

Help! Back in the early months of this year I concluded that I was going to need to be somewhere outside of the U.S. as we headed into the last few weeks of the election. I had an airline voucher that needed to be used and I'd wanted to visit Turkey ever since taking a class in the history of the eastern Mediterranean region in university, and so I booked myself tickets to Istanbul with two weeks to spend between my arrival and departure (the last week of October and the first week of November.)
