Default Sorry to Ask**Smoking in New York City***

I don't want to offend anyone, but need to ask this question for my DH.

I was telling him that I had read on the cruise boards or heard on the TV news that there was NO SMOKING in New York City.

DH says, "you've got to be kidding".

So here goes

DH wanted to know if you can smoke in your hotel room and outside the airport terminal and before you go into the ship terminal.

Or if I heard correct, does this really mean NO Smoking anywhere in the City of New York.

Again not to offend any non smokers , but I know there has be some smokers on these boards and cruisers flying into New York.

Thanks,
The Scotts

Ex smoker here and I really do feel sorry for the smokers in NY these days. But you can smoke in a Smoking room in a hotel and outside the airport terminals although at some of the terminals they have designated areas for smoking even outside. Don't know about the cruise ship terminal, but I'm sure there is a place where he can smoke. Good luck....

Sorry to say NY is now as bad a Calif.

In California, you have to smoke outside in all public areas (including bars), so I doubt it's been outlawed totally.

Maybe he'll make it ok.

He just finds it hard to believe that you can't smoke in your own hotel room that you pay for.

I guess it will soon get to where you can't smoke anywhere. That for sure will help everyone except the tabacco industry.

I told him I thought he would be able to smoke outside now. So that will help.

Thanks

I still would call the hotel and ask about the room. I believe there are still Smoking rooms but I could be wrong. Even in California, I had a smoking room and smoked in my hotel, but couldn't smoke in any other public building.

Yep, just ask for a smoking room ... no problema

(But I always pack a can of air freshner 'cause usually the hotel rooms are sealed tight)
