Travel options between Newark airport and Wall St?

I'm flying into Newark on Porter Airline, arriving around noon. Our hotel is on Wall St, close to the Wall street subway station. I'm seeing a lot of stories about terrible commuter delays, including on trains between Jersey and Manhattan. Should we spend the extra money for a van between the airport and hotel? [more inside]

Private places in NYC and surrounding areas for couples

Hi all, I'm looking for a place in NYC or the outer boroughs that me and my sweetheart can go makeout. Neither of us have cars, don't want to go to a hotel and don't want to do it in a place where lots of people can watch us. Can you find us a place? Think secluded areas where foot traffic is very light. Open to bars, cafes, parks (we found a place in central park but it's too buggy now) and any other places.

How do I search for a specific type of hotel room?

I'm trying to find a hotel suite in NYC with a bedroom and a sofa bed outside the bedroom. Not a suite with a bed and a sofa in the same area. This is proving very hard to do in websites like Expedia or Can this type of search be done? (or alternatively, if you have a specific hotel to suggest, I can just look at that)

Working remotely from NYC

I'd like to find a good place to work from remotely with my laptop in NYC (preferably Manhattan) for two days next week. In the Bay Area, we have coffeeshops where for a reasonable hourly fee you can essentially rent a table and wi-fi, and patronize the cafe as desired on top of that. Guarantees good internet and no side-eye from employees for taking up space for long periods. Is there anything like that in NY? Google is not turning it up on a quick search.

What's the situation at Trump Tower these days?

Family BlahLaLa will be in NYC in a few weeks and I'd really like to go do something at Trump Tower. Yell at it? Spit at it? Hold up a sign? New Yorkers and other knowledgeable folks, what say you? It's not going to be the focus of our vacation, but I feel it's our patriotic duty to show how much we hate him and reject everything about his administration.

Can I go straight from flight to flight at JFK?

I have a pretty straightforward question about switching flights at JFK, but googling has proven fruitless so far: I'm taking an international flight in to JFK on Tuesday, and then a domestic flight from JFK a few hours after I arrive. If they're in the same terminal can I go straight from one to the other? [more inside]
