My name is Cheesy Beef Burrito
I'm trying to figure out why anyone would want to see the Reds and the Mets in late September. Sounds pretty brutal. Plus, if the Madoff litigation has been decided by then, Wilpon may be forced into bankrupty and will have to forfit those games.
Find a bedbug free place in Manhatten to stay. Ride the 7 out to Shea, I mean Citi Field. Come back to Manhatten to socialize.
Hoboken is far away and is still expensive. I don't recommend he stay near LGA/Flushing. But Long Island City in Queens is pretty awesome and not too expensive with more space while still being close to everything.
If he's not interested in Queens then he should in Midtown.
Hoboken is obviously a little further away but I guess it depends on what else they want to do. Hobo has a cleaner and easier to naivgate bar/restaurant scene. Cheaper as well. But I do agree, midtown is a more logical choice, especially if the goal is to do some NYC stuff while in town.
You could stay at a Holliday Inn in my hometown of Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey. It's about 10 miles from midtown Manhattan.
We are actually going to a day game on Wednesday, September 28. Due in large part to suggestions on this board, I believe we are looking at staying in the Verve hotel in Long Island City? Any body have any reason why we shouldn't stay there? It's ranked as the best hotel in Long Island City on Trip Advisor. We were looking into the Ravel Hotel, but the poor reviews turned us away. Has anyone stayed at either of these hotels? Again, I appreciate any input.
Have you thought of pricelining it, have had a number of friends able to get a Times Square Hotel, 3 star, for less than $200 and you're much closer to the action after the bore than can be a Mets game at the end of the season. On the plus side Citi Field is much nicer than Yankee Stadium.
Long Island City will be convenient for Citi, Yankee Stadium and Times Square. It's close to everything. You can take the 7 right into Grand Central or the N/Q right into Times Square.
So we are flying out Sunday for the Yankees-Red Sox game. We are very excited to go to our first game at the new Yankee stadium. We are going to be driving in from LaGuardia and then leaving to go back to Allentown for the night. Does anyone know where the smartest place to park would be? We figured we could maybe park a few train stops away and save on parking, but we have no idea what the smartest place would be if we have to go to back to Allentown that night.
Also, what would be the most fun bar to go before/after the game near Yankee stadium?
All help is appreciated. Thanks.
