09 Aug 2014 Restaurant recommendations: New York City, NY

New York calls to me always, and I’ve made effort, for a few years now, to get in at least one annual trip to my favorite city. We all know that there are a wealth of experiences to be had in the city, and that besides all the sights and sounds, besides the exciting hustle and bustle, in the midst of it all there is food and more food. This April I stayed in Jersey City for two weeks with friends Steve and Alexia, in a cute little store-front apartment just a short little walk down to the Path station and across to Manhattan. I didn’t eat much in Jersey City, for though I’m sure there must exist restaurant gems there, I could not help but be drawn each day into the tunnel under the water, into the city, to feed off the energy, a palpable presence in the subways, on the streets, in the people, the bars, the restaurants, the food, New York energy in the food.

My girlfriend at the time shared with me a passion for food, at the same moment as interested in eating a dirty water dog in Central Park as checking out what dinner was like at the restaurant of one of our favorite celebrity chefs. We would try everything if we only could. The beautiful thing about eating in New York City is that you can have an eclectic day of taste discovery on Monday, followed by a completely different day of diverse dining on Tuesday, and let’s not forget about the rest of the week, so many new opportunities to eat.

Whether visiting or residing in New York, you can easily follow your own food path, and I recommend spending at least one entire day doing so, forging ahead on a discovery of your own, following your nose or merely following happenstance. Wandering, after all, is filled with discovery in Manhattan. There are times, however, when it’s best to have some recommendations, and so here are some of mine to choose from, culled from places I dined in April.

First things first, pair up with a good dining partner. Having along another person who also appreciates food lends unquantifiable value. When you discuss your experiences, you gain more insight into them. Is it possible that talking about the nuances of flavor in a meal can deepen your experience of the meal? Most definitely.

Next, avoid Roy Rogers, even if you are hungry and tempted to eat fast food, do not go inside. Roy would be ashamed of what they’ve done to his legacy. I was also disappointed by Dallas BBQ on 42nd Street. We were seated without any problems and ordered a few minutes later, at 11:49 p.m.,

09 Aug 2014 Cheap Places to Eat in New York

The cosmopolitan city of New York has one of the most diverse and internationally acclaimed restaurant scenes in the world, with new venues opening on daily bases and offerings ranging from the exotic to the innovative.

However, all this magic in the kitchen comes at a price and eating out in such a huge, buzzing city can be an expensive proposition, so here are some tips on eating on a budget in New York!

1. New York burgers with all the works.

America has long been famous for hamburgers (and not least McDonald’s) and New York is no exception. Try Blue 9 Burger on Third Avenue for some authentic food, New York-style, where dinner adds up to as little as $6. This may be a fast-food joint but they’re known for the fresh, hand-cut ingredients, as well as a trademark spicy mango sauce.

2. Deli-icious.

And it doesn’t stop with burgers: the city is renowned for its range of great meals that can be picked up on the cheap. Think cheesecake, club sandwiches and salt-beef bagels… and around the Lower East and Upper West Sides, there are numerous delis serving up these specialties with affordable prices and big portions.

3. Splurge at Happy Hour.

Although discounts at happy hour are not unique to New York, few cities can offer such great value. On weekdays between about 4 and 7pm (which is far too early for those trendy New York night-owls), even the most fashionable cocktail bars and restaurants drop their prices. Head to the Mole Mexican Bar & Grill on Allen Street for a $5 fresh-squeezed lime margarita and some equally reasonable Mexican cooking.

4. Go international.

New York is home to a huge range of international eateries and, even though they do have some more expensive restaurants, Little Italy and Chinatown, typically offer cheaper and tastier meals than touristy neighborhoods like Times Square. The popular Veselka in the East Village serves Ukrainian comfort food that won’t break the bank and (in typical New York-style) stays open until dawn.

5. Eat in.

For the truly budget-conscious visitor to New York, there’s another great alternative for cutting costs – head to one of the lovely small shops clustered in Chelsea or the farmers’ market at Union Square to pick up fresh ingredients, and then create your own dishes! Most New York hostels across Manhattan and Brooklyn have self-catering facilities so guests can sample some of those New York delicacies, even on a shoestring.

08 Aug 2014 How to Get Great Deals on Published Airfares

Believe it or not, the price one passenger paid for an airline ticket could be cheaper or more expensive than the one bought by another. There are many reasons that could explain this so here are some tips on how to get great deals on vacations.

1. The first thing to do will be to call the airline company. Some promos are advertised in the newspaper or in the website while others are done without that much marketing effort.

2. If the passenger travels often on business, most carriers have mileage plus programs and instead of just collecting it, perhaps this is the best time to redeem it. If this is not enough for the trip, maybe this can be used to transfer to business class.

3. The next thing to do will be to check out low budget carriers that are also flying in the same destination. The price difference may not be that far apart but every cent saved can be used somewhere else.

4. Aside from the usual published airfares website, there are also others websites that offer budget trips. The person should look at this and compare before choosing to book the flight.

5. It is funny how a flight from California to New York only cost $199 in some months and $399 at certain times of the year. The sudden price hike is not because of the price of fuel went up. This is because the holidays are considered to be the peak months and this is the only time airline companies can make a ton of money.

Those who are planning on vacation can save money by traveling during the lean months instead of going what everyone else is doing. If this is not possible, the other way to save money is by flying during the middle of the week or during off hours because the price also goes down and the seats have to be filled.

6. The person may not know anyone in the next destination. One way to save money is by booking a flight that already includes car rental, travel insurance and hotel accommodation.

7. The other way to save a few dollars is by staying for a few days with friends and family members so that the money that is supposed to pay for the hotel can be used for shopping.

8. Another way to get great deals on vacation is by looking into courier flights. This is something that people often overlook but a few dollars can be saved in exchange for being a courier for a few hours.

9. Some airline companies give discounts for those who travel in groups of 4 or 6. The customer can ask about this or do some research on the web because every dollar counts when the family decides to go on a trip.

10. It is also possible to get last minute bargains but this means being a chance passenger to the desired destination. This happens when a passenger makes a last minute cancellation.

The tips mentioned are guaranteed to make the passenger save money and have the rest of the family enjoy the trip. After reading this information, those who have never done this before should start planning in advance the next vacation.

08 Aug 2014 The best delis in New York City

New York City is the world center of delicatessens, and there you’ll find the most welcoming and the best examples of ethnic delights. Our favorite is the Second Avenue Deli, a popular noshing place that was in Lower Manhattan’s Greenwich Village for more than half a century. Three years ago, it moved uptown to Third Avenue and 33rd Street, but the deli still retains its famous name, homey atmosphere and great menu.

Although prices are much higher than they were in the 1950s, Second Avenue Deli still has the best, over-stacked, artery-bursting pastrami on rye in town. Add a couple of kosher pickles and a side of potato salad, and one platter has enough calories to keep a whole platoon of New York cardiologists wealthy for years.

Of course, that doesn’t take anything away from its famous cure-all-your-ills chicken soup, with a zoftig matsoh ball the size of a hand grenade floating in it. That also goes for the chopped liver, corned beef and slaw on onion roll, tongue on pumpernickel, latkes and apple sauce, pickled herring, stuffed kishka and whole boiled chicken in a pot.

For information about the Second Avenue Deli, go to 2ndavedeli.com, or call 212-677-0606.

The venerable Stage Deli has been at 834 Seventh Avenue for more than 70 years, and I can remember eating there almost that long ago back in my college student and Navy days whenever I was in Manhattan. Near the theater distirct, it has been a favorite of Broadway stars, including Al Jolson, Eddie Cantor, Danny Kaye, Ethel Merman, ex-New York Mayor Ed Koch, Frank Sinatra, Ronald Reagan and a hundred other luminaries over the years. For the past decade, it has also operated a Stage Deli clone at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The clientele is less New York ethnic and much more touristy there, but the food is just as good. You know the usual: matzoh ball chicken soup, stacked corned beef on rye, chopped liver, tongue, herring, gefilte fish and all the rest.

For more information, call 212-245-7850, or online at stagedeli.com.

The Carnegie Deli is nearby at 854 Seventh Avenue, and named for the New York music temple, Carnegie Hall, across the street. While the food is just as tasty as the other delis I’ve named, this joint seems to proudly serve everything, cash only, extra $3 for sharing a sandwich, with a snarl and a wise guy remark. It was the model for the deli in the Broadway musical, “Guys and Dolls”, where waiters took no lip and handed out lots of it. As in the joke: Customer: What’s this fly

06 Aug 2014 Top 10 New York Attractions

It’s not easy to decide how to spend your time in the Big Apple.

With so many things to see and do, where do you begin? This top-ten list of must-see New York City attractions is a good place to start.

The Statue of Liberty

The Statue of Liberty is one of the most popular of all New York attractions and no trip to the Big Apple is complete without a visit to this iconic structure.

The Statue of Liberty, officially called Liberty Enlightening the World, was constructed from bronze and was given to the United States by France in 1885 as a symbol of freedom and to mark the centenary of America’s Declaration of Independence.

Standing at Liberty Island, in the mouth of the Hudson River in the New York Harbor, it welcomes visitors as it once did for the thousands of immigrants who arrived in New York by boat. The Statue of Liberty has come to symbolize freedom, independence and American values and is an attraction not to be missed by anyone visiting New York.

Empire State Building

The Empire State Building is possibly the most famous skyscraper in the world and one of the greatest New York attractions. It’s been in numerous Hollywood blockbusters and a defining symbol of the city. It was opened on 1 May 1931 and is a must-see for any visitor to New York City – just ask any of the 10,000 to 20,000 people who visit the building every day.

The observatory, located on the 86th floor, 1,050 feet (320 meters) above the city’s busy streets, provides an unsurpassable view of New York City. It offers panoramic views from within a glass enclosed pavilion and from the surrounding open air promenade.

The building offers a variety of attractions for visitors; observatory tours 365 days per year, day and night, rain or shine provider breathtaking views of Manhattan and beyond. There are also, two restaurants, a sushi bar, three coffee shops, a drug store, a Hallmark card shop, a post office and two banks as well as the famous New York SKYRIDE virtual-reality movie theater and various art exhibits.

Times Square

Times Square is not really a square, it’s more of a district, bordered by 6th Avenue and 9th Avenue and by 39th and 52nd Streets, and is one of the greatest New York attractions. Originally it was called Longacre Square, but in 1904, when the New York Times Company moved there, it took on the name we all know today. Shortly thereafter, in 1907, Times Square began its New Year’s Eve tradition, securing the area’s place in history.

Madison Square Gardens

New York City’s Madison Square Garden is sometimes called “The Most Famous Arena in the World“. It is a 20,000-seat arena located atop the city’s Pennsylvania Station on 7th Avenue between 31st and 33rd Streets. Built in 1968, the current arena is the fourth in a line of Madison Square Gardens; the facility is home to the New York Knicks and New York Liberty basketball teams and the New York Rangers hockey team. In addition, the arena hosts over 600 events per year, including concerts, conventions, award shows, the NBA draft, and the Ringling Bros Barnum Bailey Circus.

United Nations HQ

The United Nations Headquarters is located on an 18-acre site along the East River in New York City. Home to the international organization, The United Nations, the striking glass-fronted “Secretariat” building dominates the New York midtown skyline. The building, opened in 1951, was instantly popular with tourists and continues to be one of the most popular destinations in New York City.

American Museum of Natural History

Located on New York City’s upper west side, the American Museum of Natural history continues to be one of the world’s most important natural history collections and research facilities. It has attracted world-class research scientists throughout its history and today attracts a wide range of visitors from all walks of life. It is a delight for guests young and old, and the sheer volume of exhibits means there’s always something new to see.

Central Park

Central Park is Manhattan’s back garden – in a city of high-rise apartments with a dense population, this 843-acre oasis is a place to take a walk, read a book, attend a concert, and much, much more. Over 25 million people visit the park each year, making it the most visited of any park in the United States. With four million trees, shrubs, and plants, representing 1500 species, Central Park has something to interest every visitor. In addition to the vast Great Lawn and other green spaces, the park boasts several artificial lakes, two ice-skating rinks, miles of hiking and bike trails, a zoo, a wildlife sanctuary and several children’s playparks.

Wall Street

Wall Street, a narrow street in lower Manhattan between Broadway and the East River, was the first permanent home of the New York Stock Exchange. It was also the one-time headquarters for all of the major banks and brokerage houses in the United States. While the brokerages have since moved to other parts of New York’s financial district, New Jersey, and Connecticut, the term, “Wall Street” is still synonymous with the US financial markets.

Brooklyn Bridge

Probably one of the most recognizable landmarks in New York City, the Brooklyn Bridge is the oldest suspension bridge in the United States and at 6016-feet long, one of the longest too. When it opened in 1883, after being under construction for almost 14 years, it was the world’s longest suspension bridge. It spans over the East River and links New York’s Manhattan and Brooklyn districts.

Over the years, the traffic across the Brooklyn Bridge has included horses, trolleys, elevated trains, and streetcars as well as pedestrians and automobiles but these days just cars, cyclists, and pedestrians are permitted.

Carnegie Hall

This beautiful and acoustically perfect concert hall, or more accurately, three concert halls, has been the host of over 50,000 events in its long history. Today it is completely restored and as beautiful as ever, Carnegie Hall welcomes visitors to three concert stages, a museum, and fascinating archives. In addition to watching performances, visitors to Carnegie Hall may tour the facility on guided tours, which include back stage, dressing rooms, and rehearsal halls.

06 Aug 2014 How to Book Airfares to Avoid Problems

Most people focus on saving money while booking airfares, but may not focus enough on how to avoid potential problems with connecting flights.

Here are several tips to keep in mind when you book your flights.

Pad your connections

Pad your connection time, especially when there very few flights you can take if you miss yours.

In the U.S., airlines are operating fewer flights and filling these flights with more passengers. This means more flight delays, as it takes a fuller airplane additional time to board and deplane. Airports have also become more congested and spread out.

Yet, in many cases, the minimum connecting times allowed between flights have not changed for years. If you’re booking flights with connecting times of 30 – 40 minutes or so at airports like Chicago O’Hare, you’re drastically increasing the chances that you will miss your connection. And even if you barely make it, your checked luggage may not make that flight.

This may not matter much if you’re flying into Chicago and connecting into New York’s LaGuardia Airport early in the day, as there usually are lots of other flights available through the day if your incoming flight is late.

But, it matters a lot if you’re connecting into Billings, Montana late in the day at Salt Lake City, when there are no more flights to Billings that day if you miss your connection.

And, it matters even more if you’re connecting to an overseas point, where you may find only one flight available on that route each day. Your missed flight may bag you a 24-hour wait, or a trip via a far-less-direct routing.

Common airline rules for connections

For flights within the U.S., most airlines allow you to take any available connection within four hours. In many cases, you don’t have to book the shortest connecting time to get the lowest fare.

For international destinations, you may be allowed to book any available connection within 24 hours, depending on the airline. This means that if you’re flying from Dallas to Cape Town, you don’t have to reserve an uncomfortably short 45-minute connection, instead of a much safer two- or three-hour one.

Using Priceline and Hotwire tickets

When you use Hotwire and Priceline, you don’t usually get to choose your connecting times for the cheapest fares.

Nevertheless, if you find that your connecting times seem too short, some airlines, such as United, will allow you to stand by for earlier flights on the same day when using tickets from Priceline or Hotwire. There’s no guarantee that you will get on an earlier flight, but you’ll still have your original confirmed reservation if you don’t.

On your departure day, call or check online for an earlier flight on the same airline that has seats available to your connecting airport. You can also check to see if there are nonstop flights on the same airline available to your final destination that leave earlier than your reserved departure time. For tips I’ve given for flying standby, see the link in the bio box of this article.

Avoid changing airlines

Expedia.com especially tends to display budget prices that involve traveling three or even four different airlines on the same day. These low rates are actually a collection of cheap individual fares, which can be very tempting to book.

However, in most cases, you significantly increase your chances of problems each time you connect to a different airline, making limited savings just not worth it. Here are some aggravations you could encounter:

The airlines may operate from different buildings that are not close together.

They may refuse to transfer checked luggage.

But, most importantly, they may claim NO responsibility whatsoever if you miss your connection to the other airline. This can become a very serious problem because budget fares tend to be non-refundable with heavy penalties for changes, or with no changes allowed at all.

For example, if you miss your connection from United to Southwest, which never allow each other’s flights on the same ticket, Southwest Airlines will charge you the full difference between your advance purchase fare and the much higher same-day ticketing fare for that leg of your trip. You can’t stand by. (United is kinder – if you miss your connection from Southwest to United, you’ll be allowed to stand by for a United flight on that same day at no extra fare, in most cases. Still, standby is not as good as a confirmed seat.)

Using more than one airline (with more than one ticket) for the same trip may be tempting when traveling overseas, because of the potential savings. But, be very careful when setting up these trips. In the bio box at the bottom of this article, see the link on how to save using separate tickets.

In summary, pad your layovers and keep your trips as simple as possible, and they will usually be trouble free.

Good luck for a smooth and pleasant trip!

05 Aug 2014 Discount Hotel New York City

Looking for a Discount Hotel? New York City has a surprisingly large selection.

While the sights are alluring, the price tag for a trip to NY can be steep. Many people look for a hotel at a discount, so that they can have more of their budgeted “trip money” to use elsewhere. Because, quite honestly, few NY visitors spend a great deal of time in their hotel rooms.

How to find the best discount hotel New York City has to offer? The internet is hands-down the greatest resource for do-it-yourself travel planners.

You could start by looking at one the big-name travel sites such as Travelocity, Expedia, Orbitz. This will give a sense of what they offer as the “best” discount hotel New York City. But keep in mind that there are many other websites out there that may be willing to give you a better price.

Just click any link that you find on the web (they seem to be everywhere nowadays) and check out what that site has to offer. I recommend that you click on several different links that offer a discount hotel in New York City, so that you can really get a feel for what is out there.

You can also search by hotel chain because sometimes going directly to the source will save more than a big travel site (for example: New Yorker Hotel, Red Roof Inn, Super 8 Hotel Times Square). Also consider Bed & Breakfasts, Hostels, Inns, Guesthouses and even renting a temporary apartment.

A few questions to ask while you plan for an ensuing jaunt to NYC:

Where do you want to stay? New York City can be divided into several areas and these areas usually determine the range of hotel fees you’re going to encounter.

Do you want your hotel to be situated in Manhattan, where most New York attractions can be found?

Or do you want to stay in a trendy upbeat area? If so, then the hotels in Soho, Chelsea and similar areas are probably what you’re looking for.

Fortunately for the cost-conscience traveler, one of the best alternatives to a discount hotel New York City has to offer is a Hostel…and they are located all over the metropolitan area. The general price range for a stay at a NYC hostel is anywhere from $15-$89 per night. You can choose from dorm-style or private room. Most come with a free breakfast and all come with clean sheets and towels.

This is a great New York travel deal! I can speak from experience, this is worth looking into.

Who are you traveling with? While hostels offer an amazing deal for lodging, they are NOT for everyone. Those traveling with kids probably will not want to stay in one, unless you can secure a private room for 4 people (which some have).

For those interested in a simple discount hotel, New York City will not disappoint. You can find them all over the city with a range of amenities to fit your traveling needs and budget. The price range for these discount hotels are around $80-$325 per night. The price typically depends on location and amenities of the hotel.

A great NYC hotel tip to keep in mind: If you only plan to use the room to sleep, clean up and change clothes in order to go out again, then consider an accommodation that is slightly outside of the “hot spot”. Transportation (fabulous Metro system, taxis, private vehicles, etc) is easily accessible and readily available most of the time 24/7.

So if you are looking for a discount hotel. New York City will meet or exceed your expectations and provide you with many to choose from. Not to mention all of the fun you can have with the money that you will save by choosing a low-budget accommodation.
