When you walk down the wooden sidewalks of Allen Street, you can almost imagine it's 1881 and the mine industry is booming! There is lots of shopping, but there is no driving on Allen Street and it feels pretty authentic, with many historic buildings still...More

Spacious and clean. Quaint little inn steps from downtown tombstone! If you don't stay here your missing the best accommodations in tombstone. Quiet and comfortable. Check in took 2 minutes !

I love historical sites, and Allen Street is great. The shops are pretty typical, touristy ones. But there are some hidden gems. We spent quite a bit of time walking up and down the street, people watching and shopping.

Real life wild west town, great to see the old buildings and it is like stepping back in time when the gunmen and stagecoach appear. Take time to walk along the wooden sidewalks shopping in the numerous interesting stores. We really enjoyed visiting Tombstone, hope...More

It is interesting to see how life was back in the 1800's wild west. Take time to walk to the end where the Bird cage theatre is.

Yes... Allen Street is stroller friendly. A stroller certainly can be rolled on the wooden boardwalks. And Allen Street itself is stroller friendly.

Chinatown to Journal Square Thursday morning (6 Replies)
Hello: my mother and I are taking one of the dreaded Chinatown buses to New York on Thursday. We are staying in Jersey City and looking for the easiest way to commute from Allen Street in Chinatown over to the Journal Square area of Jersey City. If it were simply myself I would walk down Canal to the World Trade Center path station and take the path across. However I am with my 65-year-old mother, and we both have suitcases as well. Any suggestions as to the best way to travel? Is it possible...More

Depending on exactly where on Allen St you'll be, the F train up to the 23rd St station then the Path seems to be the easiest to me. The transfers within stations are usually easy, just across the platform or up some stairs and over. But I'm not sure of the situation at the 23rd St station. Total trip is 41 mins on a Thursday morning according to Google maps. Will you have pull-along suitcases? They're usually easy to drag around. It's only stairs you'll have to think about,
Bus Dropoff - Which location? (10 Replies)
Can someone familiar with the NYC area tell me which of these locations would be the best to get dropped off and picked back up at for 3 ladies who are coming on a Saturday to do some shopping in Chinatown and the main part of the city (TImes Square, etc. I guess!.) Is Chinatown within walking distance of the main shopping areas? Any help would be appreciated.

West 33rd is best for being in midtown. Its probably the bus area right next to Penn Station, where you have a choice of subway routes - or you can walk to Times Square/surrounding area if the weather is good - in about 10 minutes or less. Poppa - all of the other locations are pretty much Chinatown. Most Manhattanites would know them.
