    Did this ever happen?  NYC is a little over 3 hours away from me.

    Nay, there was too little response... but it can always happen if enough people are interested! Anyone down for a meet?

  • KitiaraKitiara ✭✭✭✭ - Eminent Member Posts: 247 ✭✭✭✭ - Eminent
    Because that's when my train will be arriving roughly. We are spending the day walking around, food , drinking, kareoke somewhere. Winging it. Whatever people are up to.

    I haven't been for several years, but it sounds like we have newbie guides.

    NYC is cool but the problem is that there is literally like nothing to do there. 
    Really depends on which part you go to, and who you're with. Well, that could be said for any place, really, but imho NYC has something for everyone.
    I hoped it was obvious I was joking!

    NYC is one of the world's greatest cities. When I was starting Achaea, there were only three cities I considered moving to: San Francisco, NYC, and London. I chose SF but could have as easily chose NYC, and I have a good time there every time I visit for either business or pleasure.
    You selfish SOB I could have had an amazing ping!

    @Herenicus: How long are you going to be staying for? What's your budget like? Looking at a couple of the hotels Kitiara suggested, you're probably going to be spending ~300USD/night for their cheaper rooms.

    If you're willing to do a little bit of travelling on public transport (which I think just adds to the experience) you could stay further out from places like Times Square and pay a lot less for your hotel room. I don't have any specific recommendations, though; my hotel last time I was in NYC wasn't great and I wouldn't recommend it unless you just need somewhere cheap(ish) to crash at night.

    Agreed with Antonius. AirBnB is popular here and you can find some cheap stuff that way too.

    Pm me so I can give you my Skype info so we have a means of communication to meet if you plan on coming.
