For a city in the northeast, you would think ice skating would be a common occurance, but unfortunantly, thats not the case. However, place like the World's Fair Ice Skating Rink can help alleviate your appetite for good old fashion ice skating. Located in the heart of Flushing Meadows Corona Park, WFIS offers the ability to ice skate to your heart's content all for around $15 (which includes skate rental). The ice patrol are nice folks who will help you out if you fall or have difficulty getting around. I would advise that its probably best to avoid either Fri or Sat night. It gets way too crowded, and the mass amounts of teens can get in your way of a fun and relaxed time at the rink.
Although a bit tricky to get to, located in the middle of an industrial shipping port, the sea escape cruise offers great fun at a great price. About $30 gets you on board, which includes access to the entertainment, and buffet. The buffet isnt the greatest, and if you have money to spend, then go for the sit down dinner which will run you another $30. The best part is the gambling which open up about an hour into the cruise. There are plenty of slots, and tables available. This goes on for about 4 hours, before the night ends with some singing and dancing from the onboard entertainers. The cruise ship itself could use some sprucing up, but for the money, its a time that cant be beat.
Now this is a mall. This mall has every department store you can think of--from the cheap to the expensive and everything in between. I honestly believe it would take you a solid weekend to shop all the stores available. Warning: parking is extremely tough if coming in the late afternoon. The best time to get there would be in the AM--right around opening (10AM). In addition, try to avoid going at night as it is the time the teen set come out and play.
Went there a to buy some luggage and walked away with mized feelings. Went there in the middle of the day, and there was only one person to help. Mind you, this one Associate was very old, and very difficult to work with. It took a while to find what I was looking for, but found it, asked a few questions, which the sales associate did know the answers to, and made my purchase. I would recommend this establishment as long as you have a good idea of what you need and willing to spend.
If you are in Key West, then I suggest a visit to the Ernest Hemingway museum. Located on the highest point in key west , the museum offers a trip back to a more simple time to when key west was a simple fishing village. You get a great feel for life back in the 30's and understand the influences Hemingway saw and felt as he was writing some of his best known novels. Be advised in the summer that it can get very hot with no AC. Make sure to bring plenty of water.
Located in an out of the way part of White Plains, Roosters offers lunch/dinner time selections. Some of the food is great like their sandwhiches which are piled high with meats and cheeses, others are so so, like the tune which tends to have too much tuna. I would also say that the food here can run on the high side so prepare to bring some cash.
I have to admit, every time I come here, I walk home with a smile. Located about 45 minutes from NYC, adventureland offers rides, games, and entertainment for all age groups (but mainly for the younger set). The rides are cute, but nothing on the scale of your large amusement park. Parking is OK, but you will have to pay. Be careful of coming on the weekends, as traffic to farmingdale can be insane.
then come on over. The cool thing about this clothing store is that it is very NYC subway oriented complete with a subway replica right in the middle of the store. The clothes tend to cater to the young, urban adult, and service is ok..they may or may not help you. IF you're in the "hood" and in the market for some clothes, then I suggest you stop by.
I went here for my undergrad and majored in Psych. The biggest plus for QC is that you can get a great education for very cheap. The biggest drawback is that the campus is run down and dilapidated, plus you have to practically jump through hoops to file for a major or have your financial aid question answered. Another major plus is the diversity of the stident body--you can meet student you wouldnt normally have any interaction with. If you are planning to continue your education after QC, then I recommend. If QC is the end of your educational career, then I recommend you go someplace else.
I am not a fan of this beach. It gets very crowded during the summer--so much so that it is difficult to find a spot and you will wait hours to find one-and the crowds are the worst. Between the teens trying to show off and large families, you will be constantly bombarded by loud music and people running around you. If you want somewhere where you can rest and relax, you are better off going off someplace else.
