    Default New York City!!!

    we go every year, sometimes twice a year --

    I will preface this post with: it's better to go in groups of 6 or more!

    Number 1 rule for New York City:

    DO NOT STAY IN HOTELS!

    Number 2 rule for New York City:

    DRIVE ONLY IF YOU LIVE TOO FAR FROM AN AMTRAK STATION!!
    ~*~

    Our trip in March 2013:

    6 people (counting 1 child) -- took Amtrak (round trip $249.00 each from Toledo to NYC Penn Station).

    We rented a house in Park Slope (a ritzy neighborhood in Brooklyn, NY) -- the house was 3 stories tall, and offered sleeping space for 10 comfortably!

    The cost of the house for 10 nights, set each of us back $588 -- which means it cost each of us less than $60 a day!! (that's a killer deal for NYC).

    Meals: we had a full kitchen, plus backyard bbq ... we were set for meals! (much cheaper than eating out everyday for all meals).

    Getting around: two 7 day metro cards (reloadable)

    we went EVERYWHERE and did a lot of FREE things, and found that 10 days was not long enough (even though my DH and I lived there for a year, and he is from there).

    If anyone is planning on going, let me know!!

    The agency we used to get the house rental is: New York Habitat - Apartments in New York, Paris, London and South of France and they are professional and simply amazing!! You won't be disappointed.

    we are thinking of going December 26, 2013- January 3, 2014 ... (no ... we do NOT go to Times Square for the ball drop -- that's just insanity -- but we do go to a HUGE private party that is a culinary dream)...if you want to go, you can go with us.

    I would love to go, however, I will not have any extra cash since I am out of work.
