We, too, were nervous about navigating in and around NYC; still are, somewhat. But the pre-cruise part I think we are comfortable with now. We will use a car service to take us from LGA to our hotel in Brooklyn. But, based on posts we have read recently, there does seem to be some dilemmas in getting out of the BCT upon disembarkation for those who are not driving. I haven't gotten any satisfactory answers to that yet. It seems that you can't reserve a car service upon return? Not sure, guess I will ask when I make our reservation for pickup from LGA. If that is the case, then we will call for one or grab a cab. It seems that the taxi situation is either feast or famine - have read posts that there are plenty waiting in line and then have read posts complaining that they are far and few between. Can't quite get the pulse on this issue. I'm just glad that I made our flight reservations for late in the afternoon; might take us that long to get out of there!
