What's fun for preteens near the New York City Transit Museum?

Chaperoning several pre-teens to this area of Brooklyn where none of us have ever been; we're out-of-towners. What are some quirky, offbeat stores, ethnic restaurants, haircutting places--no tatoos, or piercings--that some 13-14 out-of-town kids might find fun within, say, 20 minutes' walking time from the NYC Transit Museum at Boerum and Schemerhorn in Brooklyn Heights? Yes, we'll be doing the Brooklyn Bridge separately.

Recommend a San Diego brunch/dinner cruise?

I'd like to do a brunch or dinner cruise for two in San Diego, can you recommend a company? Most important would be relaxing and at least somewhat romantic. Cost, alcohol not important. Relatively quiet, decent food, table for two, nice views more important. Loud music, fighting for a nice table/lack of reserved seating/group seating, crowded are minuses that I don't see much about on yelp reviews. Possibly I am mostly thinking of ferry crossings and none of these negatives actually apply. Suggestions for a specific company or recommended cruise? Thanks!!

Weekend transit options in the greater D.C. area

We need to be in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, January 21. That's the day after the presidential inauguration, so hotel rates are ridiculous and parking will be nonexistent. People who know D.C. transit: Where in the greater D.C. area can we get an affordable hotel room and catch a train or shuttle into the city on a Saturday? [more inside]

NOLA Thanksgiving

Husband and I are heading to New Orleans for Thanksgiving and I have a three part question. We are driving from Austin and just booked a hotel in the French Quarter from Wednesday to Sunday. It will be our first time there. I saw this question from 2009 and this one from 2013 which are both very helpful. My questions: 1) what should first-time visitors do to soak it in? 2) are there Thanksgiving related events or meal recommendations? 3) How is the drive from Austin to NOLA and are there any noteworthy stops? About us: originally from Northeast, just moved to Austin this Fall, love ethnic food, do not need turkey or traditional Thanksgiving fare, like visiting new cities and spending hours walking around.

NYC Apartment Filter: Paying the deposit/first month's rent

From my research, one is expected to pay the deposit and first month's rent for an apartment in New York City with some sort of certified funds. Some things I've read have said cashier's checks, some have said traveller's checks, some have said certified checks, some have said money orders. I don't have an account anywhere with a physical presence in New York City. How do I handle this situation? Do I need a cashier's check to pay the broker's fee as well? Can I just dodge this whole problem by wiring money? [more inside]
