Eating out for 20 in Queens

I'm bringing 13 high-school theatre kids to NYC in a month, staying in Long Island City, Queens. I'm looking for places that will welcome 13 exuberant, exhausted theatre kids along with 7 adults and happily serve them food we can't get in our little Seattle-adjacent community. [more inside]

Overnight parking options outside of NYC

I'm planning a family trip from Ohio to Massachusetts with a stop over in NYC for a couple nights. We're going to get a hotel in Manhattan, but I don't want to take my car into the city. I'm looking for a place to park overnight, likely in NJ, that (a) is relatively easy to get to, (b) is near a train that can take us into the city, and (c) can be reserved ahead of time for a reasonable price.

Where can I hear a torch song in New York City?

I've never been to New York City. I've also always wanted to go to a piano bar where (cis or trans) women sing torch songs and (cis or trans) women in the audience wear evening dresses and elbow gloves. Where can I go?

JFK layover options

I have a long-ish layover at JFK T4 (3pm-11pm) later this month. My top priority is getting a decent vegan meal before rolling the dice with the onboard vegan options on my connecting flight. Beyond that, I can't decide whether to try to go into the city for an hour or two, or just hang out at the airport (maybe with a lounge pass). Seeking options & recommendations. [more inside]

Does this NYC tourism guide app exist?

Looking for an app that shows places of touristic interest on a map for New York City. Mostly interested in historic buildings and museums; cheap/unique dining suggestions would be a plus. Willing to pay but would prefer an up-front cost rather than a death by a thousand cuts "pay $3.99 to unlock the Central Park walking tour route" approach.

Things to do at the Finger Lakes - indoors

My wife and I are on our way (like, in the car as you read this) to New York's Finger Lakes for a much-needed vacation, and had planned to spend most of our time outdoors - hiking, kayaking, etc. Given the air quality numbers, this plan is... not looking great. So, what can we do instead? We'll be staying near Wayne but pretty willing to drive as needed to not feel like we've wasted our vacation. [more inside]

Getting from JFK to Hotel Giraffe at 3PM-ish... Easy or cheap or both?

We're arriving to JFK and trying to figure out whether to grab a taxi to our hotel (365 Park Ave. S), a Lyft/Uber or brave a subway/bus trip? We'll have rolling suitcases, a carry-on bag and not much more.

Where should I take the kiddos in NYC?

I’m taking my girls (10 & 14) to New York City for 3 days in late June. It’ll be their first visit and I’ve begun the utterly impossible task of planning the perfect itinerary. I grew up near NYC and went there all the time, so I know the basics, but haven’t been there as a tourist in decades. Help! [more inside]

Specific timing for a few days in NYC

I've read through previous NYC vacation posts/replies, which was really helpful with thinking through what we'd be interested in seeing. I'd love some specific help with organizing our itinerary, and what it means for how we'd arrange things and travel between the different stuff we'd like to do. We're planning on flying into LaGuardia most likely on a Tuesday early afternoon and leaving on Saturday early afternoon. [more inside]

A day outside Manhattan

This Sunday, Mrs. Ardo and I are heading to NYC for the week. There are plenty of things to do in Manhattan and we plan on doing some of them (plays, Cloisters, LES strolling, etc). I'm also looking for a neighborhood outside Manhattan where we can get very good pizza or other non-fancy food for lunch and maybe dinner, see some interesting new art and do a little shopping. Any suggestions?
