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.

Getting from Newark Airport to northern Manhattan during rush hour.

A relative who is visiting us will be getting into Newark Airport today at 4:30. I'm wondering if it would be easier and faster to take public transportation or just splurge on a taxi, considering it is rush hour. [more inside]

Hamilton - Still worth it?

My daughter and I recently discovered Hamilton (yes, I know, we're way behind the curve). I'd like to take a short (~3 day) trip to NYC, see some sights, and maybe see the play. Tickets are still quite expensive, and I know a significant portion of the original cast has moved on. Does it still make sense to shell out the big bucks to see Hamilton on Broadway? Or did we miss the moment for it? [more inside]

Places to visit & explore on the Upper West Side of Manhattan?

Friend and I are doing some photography on the UWS tomorrow and as much as part of the fun is aimlessly wandering I was hoping someone here might recommend some interesting locations to hit up, neat buildings we might be able to enter, small parks or public spaces worth exploring. Really anything that might interest a couple of urban explorers.

Bar with a view in Brooklyn

Looking for a bar in Brooklyn with a view of Manhattan for a party of eight that will allow reservations for pre-dinner drinks. Any ideas? Must allow reservations - don't want to turn up and wing it. Indoor also preferred, but outdoor fine too (if it means a view is possible).

NYC help! 4 month stay in Manhattan with sporadic travel to Princeton

Hello New Yorkers, I have two friends here in Spain who will be visiting scholars in the US for 4 months between October and January. The catch is that one will be working in NYU and the other at Princeton. Ideally, they would like to stay in or near Manhattan, but in an area that makes it as easy as possible to travel to Princeton. [more inside]

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]
