|Subject: Re: Newark|
I agree with John about the time / traffic.
However IMO the Olympia busses to the city are the way to go. I have
used them many times and they actually have an express lane at the
(Lincoln) tunnel for busses only. No matter where in the city you go
plan to leave back to airport from the Trade center. It is the
quickest and the busses sit in the same traffic as taxis for much
less money. The bus is air conditioned and clean since it is geared
to business travelers. No offense to Newark N.J., but the choice
between the greatest city in the world (NYC) or Newark seems like a
no brainer! Time moves quickly in NYC so watch the clock. Also the
busses run much less frequently after the business day. Some things
to do. Soho, Greene street , West B'way., Sullivan street, in the
village walk Houston to 6 ave go north to Bleeker and walk around. Go
north to Sherridan Square and head east. 8 st. turns into St. Marks
Place going east to the east village. Great record stores and things.
The West side is more upscale the East side is funkier. Avoid midtown
unless you want to see big buildings and lots of people. If you want
more upscale take the subway to Central park and walk up central park
west across the park at 80st. to 5 ave by the museum (met). Or forget
all this and head directly to the museum of modern art (55 st 5ave)
spend a few hours there and have lunch in the cafe and back to the
airport. This is probably the best thing to do if you love Art. I
could type all day on this subject so write to me if you want more.
