Given your rabid anti-americanism codders this dont half make me laugh.

I am NOT Anti American - we are far closer to the Yanks than we will EVER be to the Europeans.....

Just cos I hate BUSH and rednecks does not make me anti American - I hate Blair just as much in case you hadn't noticed!!!

Ok thanks guys.

Donuts, thanks for those tips, very much appreciated! I've heard about the VA Hosties, we'll be sure to check it out

Alan, probably a wise choice, my credit card may be getting a fair bit of use I have heard about the coyote ugly bar and also night clubs on boats so will try and check those out too. I need to spend longer there really!

Andy, I think my matey was thinking of getting one of those books...should be useful.

Thanks again for the tips.

Cheers

Tim

Englishman in NY

Hey Tim i live right in the heart of Greenwich Village on Bleeker street and i have been here for 8 yrs now.If you really want to know the best things to do while in NYC let me know and i will give you my cell phone number.I have 2 buildings 1 in the village and 1 in midtown manhattan so i am about 15 mins away from you no matter what bldg i am at.If you want any info just let me know.

If your flying into JFK ....

1st tip is to be very careful of the taxi touts as you come out of the arrivals gate.They are very sneaky and have recently started carrying clipboards & wearing a tie & asking people ''need a cab sir ??'' here come with me.
Then you find out they are nt officials & just some fella with a van.Do not get into any vehicle at the airport except a proper Yellow NY Cab.If your flying into JFK there is a set rate of $45 plus the toll plus the tip (about $55 in total)

Or the 2nd option is to get the new air train right into Jamaica Stn then get the E train subway straight to 42nd street Time Sq.

Its really easy.

Anyway ,any questions just ask.
