I hope that I am asking this in the correct forum this time.
I have decided to plan a trip to New York as a treat for my daughter finishing her GCSEs and turning 16.
I would like depart UK on the 19th June and visit New York for 10 nights.
I have booked our flights, at a reasonable price arriving at JFK Airport at approx. 1.30pm on the 19th June, so I have this covered.
I have been looking at hotels in Long Island City, due to them being a lot cheaper than staying nearer, in particular I have seen a fantastic offer for a 10 night stay in the Home2 Suites aparthotel, although the hotel isn't completed yet, the offer is stating that I can book any time after the 2nd June.
Sorry to ramble, but I thought I would try to set the scene before my questions...
Ok, so, has anyone walked past the site and if so, do you think its feasible that the aparthotel will be open on time?
Also if all goes to plan and we are able to stay in this hotel, what would be the best way to travel to and from each day for our sight seeing around New York? We are looking to do all of the usual tourist attractions.
I have seen a 7 day metro ticket/card could this be used and would it be the more cost effective way of travelling?
Thank you for your time reading this, and any comments are really appreciated, this our first time travelling on our own, without my husband and also to New York.
