urgent! I have 9 hrs in new york tomorrow night on my way to mexico- what should I do?
Posted July 29th, 2011 - 12:28 am by from Paris, France (Permalink)
I assumed I wouln't be allowed out of the airport- but I suppose I'll have to make my own way from jfk- La Guardia Apt ???

so if I'm escorted there or something- obviously thats that


but if I take a taxi from jfk- la guardia and drop off my suitcase... then what? my parents are already really nervous because I'm going to mexico for 5 weeks (I'm 21 and home for the summer) and they think its really dangerous to go out alone in new york- really?

I'm guessing most down town areas of cities are packed with (normal) people on a saturday night right?

well I will be happy even if I just take one of those yellow taxis through new york... but it would be cool to see new york even just a little snapshot...


(I know this is so annoying when people just have foreign numbers- I don't expect you to call- if you use your funds to get me to where you are I owe you a drink ;) ):

my number is 0044 750 5496 788 (british)

Im guessing the wise thing is to drop off my suitcase at the airport first and stick around the area... so that means I'll be able to pop over to manhattan (kinda curious to see queens and the bronx but maybe that just betrays my ignorance of new york..)

and if it makes any difference I am a big fan of woody allen, bob dylan, hip hop and the wire...
