It was impossible to get anywhere without delays.
And that whole safety thing.

It was such great fun in those days. You never knew when you would get someplace, it might take 45 minutes, it could just as easily be two hours. The whole city was falling apart. And there was no bottled water! I was once on a subway where it was so hot and so crowded that a when a woman fainted there was no room for her to fall down. People passed her to a seat and someone had a can of soda, which he tried to open and it sprayed over a bunch of people. But, she came to and was bundled off at her stop.

New York, NY

I'm going to be in New York Dec 1-5 with the future wife and was going to propose while we where in town. Any suggestions on a romantic spot, I've never been to NY so was kind of hoping for some helpful input.

There's a stickied thread on this board that could probably give you some ideas: http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=930787

If not, post in there and I'm sure someone will help you out. Have fun on your trip!

I'm 16 so I don't know much, but maybe the ice rink in front of the tree at Rockefeller Center?

Yea they usually do. I remember there was ice last November when the Rangers released their heritage jerseys.

Possibly the most cliched spot I can think of, but one that women tend to go nuts for, is the ice skating rink at Rockefeller Center. The tree will be lit up at that point.

Another idea (still a little cliche but not as much) would be the Hayden Planetarium at the Museum of Natural History.

Maybe the top of the rockafeller center? I'm hardly an expert but its a beautiful view, especially at night.

Good and somewhat popular for marriage proposals.

Since I'm from Brooklyn: The Promenade in Brooklyn Heights (see the link). You're not in Manhattan, but you have a view of the Brooklyn Bridge, Statue of Liberty and the harbor (plus, Manhattan too). Only thing, it can be cold there.

Good call, Brooklyn. Was going to suggest the same thing.

Especially at night on a clear evening.

A less expensive option, you can take her on a Spirit boat ride around NYC Island, comes with a meal, dancing and lots of romance.

There are a very nice couple of spots along The High Line, if you get there as the sun is going down.

Then there are a couple of great locations in Central Park, too.

Hey guys,

Going to be visiting NYC for the first time with a bunch of friends. open to any and all suggestions for the 5 days we'll be there.

My only real question is about getting to Giants stadium from Manhattan and the logistics of the their tailgates?? Anyone know if there is a direct bus? I assume the subway ends at the state border?

Tailgate typically heat up around 10am for the 1pm games

Also flying into/out of Newark, will be leaving early monday morning after the RedSkins Giants game - so thinking get a hotel before the game on the sunday to dump the bags at the airport hotel - is this logical for location?

Really appreciate any help or tourist suggestions.

Looking for recommendations of places you would get piss drunk with your 5 best buddies from school.

I asked my wife to marry me at central park on horse and buggy where he pulled over on famous little bridge near the Plaza. Worked for me.

Good luck.

You can take the train to Manhattan to the Meadowlands. You can either take NJ Transit out of Penn Station and switch at Secaucus for a Meadowlands bound train or you could take the PATH train into Hoboken and take a direct NJ Transit train to the Meadowlands from there.

Just walked by Step. Mcd and Arty doing some kind of photo shoot in Times Square. I leaned in and said arty shouldn't be there, he didn't go to Wisconsin. Both Mcd and Step turned and smiled. Arty didn't move.
