Any tips for booking something last minute in NYC area.

My son is attending a "theater camp" in NYC in 2 weeks. He's staying with the group, we were planning to do touristy stuff during the week. We had booked an Airbnb a couple weeks ago in West Orange NJ. This morning it cancelled on us. This was an awesome place that had a pool and other amenities that my wife was looking forward to help keep our other children busy during the days that I would also be working in Manhattan. Needless to say we're pretty disappointed. [more inside]

Availibility / Reliability of Uber Family in NYC

My wife and I are taking our 17 month old to NYC for Memorial Day weekend. We are flying into and out of LGA, and our plan is to take public transit as much as possible, but to use Uber Family (which provides a car seat) to make a couple of key connections. We are especially concerned about the end of our trip, when must get from Midwood in Brooklyn to LGA. We'd like to use Uber Family, but we don't know how reliable it is in that area. [more inside]

This sounds dumb but I don't know what to do in NYC

I'm taking a four day trip to NYC over Memorial Day weekend (solo). I have plans on Sunday evening but other than that, my time is completely unaccounted for. And aside from a few non-specific ideas, I'm overwhelmed by choices. [more inside]

Yes, I would like a big camera rig strapped to my rather dodgy boat

Seems a long shot, but: A friend and I are planning on doing the Falls to Statue (Buffalo NY to NYC) route by canoe this summer, and we're intrigued by the prospect of bringing a Google Street View rig with us. What would be the best way to get in touch with Google's Maps team to see if they would be interested in letting us take a Streetview rig on the route? I've poked around Google's "Contact US" site without much that inspires confidence.

Why does 1 WTC look like the top floors are still under construction?

The top 1/3rd or so of 1 WTC is illuminated, at night, by intensely bright white lights which look almost exactly like construction lights hung in unfinished buildings. Other skyscrapers are lit by warmer yellowish office lights. What's the deal? Are those floors empty or is that just the new trend in skyscraper lighting?

Favorite tea shops in New York City?

I'd like to find a good tea shop, or coffee shop that makes good tea, to do some reading and light laptop work (just writing some emails, not "working remotely" or anything like that). I'm specifically looking for cafes, not (exclusively) retail stores, and also not looking for the "afternoon tea"/"high tea" experience. [more inside]

A chill, relaxing NYE/NYD that happens to be in NYC.

I don't need to actual celebrate/acknowledge New Year's Eve/Day in NYC, but I will happen to be in the city for the holiday and am looking for calm, interesting possibilities that don't involve locking yourself into an apartment against the hordes (the entire time). Looking for your suggestions on how to spend a few days in NYC over the holiday that don't necessarily involve celebrating the holiday (but do avoid crowd crush to the greatest extent possible.)
