We, a family of four with two adult children from New Zealand, are spending two weeks around Christmas and New York in New York City. What is not to be missed, and indeed to be avoided, from a Christmas point of view? We like food, music - classical and jazz - and museums. Any thoughts on where to have Christmas Eve or Christmas Day lunch? We have some pretty strong family traditions (mainly Hungarian) at this time of the year but these are normally based around our home. It will be exciting to try something new. We will be staying in Williamsburg if that helps. All suggestions welcome.
Visiting New York for a long weekend. Please enlighten me as to the plusses and minuses of Uber/Lyft vs. Taxi for getting to and from La Guardia. I'll be staying in Washington Heights. Coming in on a Thursday afternoon, leaving early Tuesday morning.
I'm at a conference with quick access to NYC and my colleague, who has never been before, would like to go in for the evening. All of my day trips in the past are predicated on getting back on the train at like 5:30 so I have no clue where to take her. [more inside]
Will you help me with a whirlwind itinerary in NYC to show one of my best friends the town on her first visit here? How is our time best spent, given our limitations? Sparkly snowflakes below the fold. [more inside]

I'll be in Manhattan this weekend for the last three Phish shows (Fri-Sun), and for the first time I'll be rolling solo (or can choose to do so) after the shows. At least one night, I would like to go out post-show and enjoy some dance club vibes, but I need some help finding the right spot. Details inside. [more inside]
I am going on a business trip to NYC in mid-August for 4 days. I have never been to NYC before and I would love advice/suggestions on a couple things and be able to make the most of my short time there. [more inside]
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]
My husband and I will be in New York at the end of August and we’re having trouble deciding where to stay. Where should we stay that’s not Times Square/midtown? [more inside]
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.
A different tack on NYC housing. If price were no object, and you wanted to live in the most artistically rich and inspiring part of Manhattan, where would it be? [more inside]

Our weekend camping trip is looking like it will be rained out. Do you have suggestions for five moms and seven kids between the ages of 2 and 5 within two hours of NYC? Can be a day trip or overnight or Friday through Sunday. [more inside]
When purchasing MetroNorth railroad tickets at the MTA vending machine that accepts both cash and credit is it possible for you to purchase you ticket with a combination of cash and card? For example, can I put $20 bucks in and make the rest of the total up with a credit card?
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 Hotels.com. Can this type of search be done? (or alternatively, if you have a specific hotel to suggest, I can just look at that)
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.

Arriving on an overnight flight at JFK at 5:10AM on a Thursday, flying out on an international flight at 3:15PM on the same day. What do we do from 5:10AM until whenever we need to be back at the airport, and what time would that be, realistically? [more inside]

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.
