Manhattan is a very narrow island (2 1/2 miles at it's widest point on 14th Street). The Crowne Plaza is only about 5 (though long) blocks from the Manhattan piers, and a very short cab ride. And...

It was a big problem for me several years ago in Germany dealing with an unmanned gas pump that wouldn't take my card very early in the morning, and others have reported problems with ticket machines...

Dial 7 Car Service has a minivan that will take the four of you from the pier to EWR for $64. Call them and talk: 212-777-7777 or go on their website.

Look into Megabus or Bolt Bus and see if that works for you. Otherwise, I think Amtrak is your best bet; I've done the Septa/NJ Transit thing many times, but not with luggage.

If you are going to be sailing from New York, Restaurant Week here has been extended through September 5, and you can dine in the real Le Cirque for either $24.07 (lunch) or $35.00 (dinner). Plus...

Whether there's anything actually in the car or not, parking an unattended vehicle on the street for a week with Ohio plates is an invitation for some miscreant to see what's in the trunk. And they...

Try Dial 7 (212-777-7777); I've found them to be very reliable. Do not take a cab; except for trips to Newark Airport they can charge you any amount of money you'll agree to.

Go to South Beach, that's the part of Miami you really want to see. Sorry, folks, I think Bayside is a big bore. It's like going to the French part of Epcot and thinking you've been to France.

Coconut Grove is a great place for adults, but not for teens. Downtown Miami and Bayside gets old for teens after about an hour, I suspect. Go to Miami Beach--South Beach, in particular. It's also...

A sidecar is usually eight parts brandy or Cognac, two parts Cointreau, and one part lemon juice. Mix the ingredients in a shaker half full of ice. Strain and serve in a sugar-rimmed glass. Garnish...

These days, anything you feel like wearing; you'll see everything from shorts to suits.

They're real; in fact, Bolt is owned by Greyhound. I've ridden both Bolt and Megabus to Boston, and found both to be fine. Getting a cab at the drop-off point in NYC will be easy; fare will probably...

Yes, please; I'm also curious about this, as I have it booked on the Veendam for our last night at sea in September.

Exactly so. And what your cabin stewards really want--and need--is money. That's why they're doing this job that takes them away from their families for months--years--at a time. Their cabins are...

I suggest you look into the Travel Inn at 515 West 42nd Street; it's midway between Times Square and the Hudson River (Circle Line, Intrepid Museum, Manhattan cruise piers) in a safe neighborhood...

You can get there by bus. Go to Bus station A near the harbour. At the bus station look for the KNOSSOS ticket office. Very easy.

P.S. And you could, of course, inquire from---oh, wait---the Indonesian embassy or local consulate. Just a thought.

Generally speaking, the jackets I've seen restaurants keep in stock for their underdressed customers are really, really ugly and hardly ever even close to the right size.

The original name of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey when it was formed in 1921 was the Port of New York Authority. I suppose they could have found a more awkward wording if they'd...

138east is absolutely correct; it can be a backed-up nightmare at any hour on any day. Whatever route you take, avoid this (AKA The Cross-Bronx Expressway) at all costs.

It's not a pod hotel, the rooms start at 10 x 18 feet. Some even have terraces and hot tubs. And the robot stores left luggage, it doesn't deliver anything. It's a great location (and introductory...

Sorry, this is simply not true. There is a bus stop on the north side of 34th Street and 8th Avenue, directly across the street from the New Yorker Hotel. All they have to do is take the M20 to...

Two very good Broadway non-musicals running in NYC right now are JERUSALEM and THE MOTHER****** WITH THE HAT. And for something really strange, there's SPIDER-MAN, the 70 million dollar musical that...
