Hi all, so I’ve come up with the second edition of my questions for research purposes, after the great response I received and am still receiving from my first effort I’m excited to hear what you guys have to tell me about this lot;
Firstly in regard to an item in the last lot of questions about cheap sims for our phones, we all have iPhone4s so are we able to buy sims that will fit these in NYC or should we buy some cheap phones just for the trip?
Next is to do with a couple of sporting interests, I know it will be the NFL season while we are there in early October but I can’t seem to find any season draws to see when and who will be playing and where, so my question is at what time of year does the NFL release their season draw for the year?
Also sticking with sport…well sort of, we’re interested, for a bit of fun, to go and watch some roller derby action if it’s on at that time of year so any advice or tips on their seasons and/or venues would be great also.
Now possibly the most important question so far, in regard to accommodation, as I said we are planning to be in NYC from the 9th of October to the 17th and have a budget of $2500.00 for accommodation. We want to stay preferably in Brooklyn, going on tips and advice I’ve researched and read on here it seems as though it would suit us nicely, but everything we’ve looked at so far from say the $1700 to $2500 range have all been fairly small rooms and such. We’re wondering if this is the norm for the hotel rooms to be on the small size or not or only in and around our budget price. There are 3 of us, 2 adults and a teenager along with bags and carry-on luggage as well so we’re a bit wary of whether with these small rooms we could be a bit squashed in instead of being comfortable.
If any of you know of decent accommodation in the Brooklyn area within our budget we would appreciate any tips or clues you might like to pass on.
Thanks heaps to you all for being so informative and helpful, it really is a wonderful thing the TA forums especially for people like us who have no idea at all as to where to start until all of you extend your hands of friendship and answer all are concerns without problem, cheers.
