Well, it looks like we will be the only ones from OZ that is taking this trip or they just dont know about this terrific site. I really enjoy reading all your messages and have found something of interest from you all. Perhaps someone would be kind enough to let me know the best route to New York via JFK. We are staying in a Hotel on 58th Street. Do we bus it or take a cab? And how much should we expect to pay? We arrive about 5pm Friday night, so I guess that will be hectic.......I would appreciate any info anyone can give me. Really hope to hear from SOMEONE! before we go. Vikki
Take a cab, hairy ride, but all part of the experience. It will cost you USD45.00 plus the bridge tolls, I don't know how much the tolls are. The fare is posted in the back of the cab, so do not pay any more than that. Make sure you only get in a registered yellow cab. You can tell them, they have a Taxi sign on top of the vehicle and the rates posted on the door. Like any international JFK is busy and full of hawkers, but you'll be fine, try and get a window for the views on your flight. I flew into JFK on my own just before xmas and was fine, everybody was very friendly and helpful. Manhattan is FAB. I took myself round on one day, whilst my hubby was working and had a great time. Enjoy it for me. Anymore info neded then feel free to contact me by clicking on my name!
What do you mean this isn't how they eat onboard?
