New York types - can you recommend me somewhere to stay on the weekend of the 20th April? I'd prefer to be somewhere around the East Village/Lower East Side (close to SENY  :) ) It needs to be reasonably priced and I'd prefer something quirky and interesting. Somewhere like this: http://bedandcoffee.com/ would be perfect but they are unfortunately booked out.

Oh, good call. I actually bookmarked that site *ages* ago and had completely forgotten about it. Thanks, Giles and Urb

I'd look into the airbnb in Williamsburg honestly. You could probably find entire apartments for the same price as a super small room next to stranger in the city. I live in Williamsburg and I can get to SENY faster than most people in the city. It's one train stop away.

Thanks from me too Shane, I'm going to look into Williamsburg for October on airbnb. Lando recommended them to me yesterday, and I was wondering about areas outside Manhatten  :)

Yeah you should. Williamsburg is so easy to get into the city from and it will certainly be cheaper. One of us can give you the exact details on traveling to and from the city if you decide to stay in BK.

I know that Pam is going to ask me this question, so I have to ask you guys, is it a safe area for walking around with a 6 year old? We've been to New York many times, but always stayed in hotels, and always near Times Square (tourist mecca).

I would say it is MUCH safer than Times Square. And NYC in general is not unsafe. Pretty much the opposite of what you would think.

I'd say, as a whole, Williamsburg is more safe than Times Square. I live right on the edge of safe and possibly unsafe. And it's really only slightly sketchy super late at night. And by unsafe I mean if you're a super drunk girl stumbling around my street a bum or another drunk person might fuck with you. But that can really happen anywhere in the city. That's just my opinion.

Thanks guys, and absolutely no offence meant. If you guys were to ask me about where I lived, I would say that it is a shit hole, and you should visit somewhere (anywhere) else  ;D

Hey, no problem here. And certainly no offense taken. Fair question to ask when traveling abroad, especially with a little one. And something tells me that Tommy could kick the shit out of a good 90% of the male population in "BillyBurg", seriously!

If you need one of us to go check it out or arrange to pick up the keys before you come into town, just holler! And double check the address with Urb via PM to make sure it is easy to get to and from the subway etc.
