Q&A: I am going to new york for nine days. Does anyone have a good daily itinerary that I can follow?More is better?

Question by New Yorkie: I am going to new york for nine days. Does anyone have a good daily itinerary that I can follow?More is better?
I am going to new york for nine days. First time. I want to do as much as possible. I was wondering if anybody has a good daily itinerary that I could follow? I want to do things close together in one day and so forth. Some of the major things I want to hit are Ground Zero, China Town, Times Square, Broadway, Central Park and it’s museums, greenwich village, sighttseeing cruises, empire state building, wax museum, manhatten mall, museum of modern art, nbc studio tour, skyride, rockefeller center, statue of liberty and ellis island, century 21, frozzen hot chocolate at serendipity, brooklyn bridge, and any other ideas that you think would be awesome. I have Phantom of the opera tickets already and I have a new york pass. We are staying right in Times Square if that helps any, and I would prefer to take the subway or other cheap ways of travel.

Just 3 things
If you can then change your hotel reservation from TS to the Upper West Side
Doing that will save you money and place you in a much better and non-touristy neighborhood
I mean you’re gonna be in town for 9 days you’ll feel better coming home to a neighborhood where real NY’ers actually live
NYC is a 24/7 city >use that to your advantage
Do the things that have got to be done before 5:00PM before 5:00PM
Go back to your hotel , take a nap for a couple of hours ,freshen up and then go out and play with the City at night
Lastly NYC is the greatest food city on the planet
On the things that NYers worship list Food is always on the top 3 .Take advantage of that by not using any chain restaurants x/c Dunkin Donuts and eating at local ethnic restaurants and getting authentic gourmet ethnic groceries at any one of the hundreds of such places scattered throughout the City and it’s boroughs.

Very happy garden wedding and prepared for a good future together except for one issue…?

Question by : Very happy garden wedding and prepared for a good future together except for one issue…?
My wife’s work is in Sydney. The best chances she has for her tourism work is in that city due to the fact that her tourists first arrive in sydney loaded up. So she gets commission from them.

we just had our marriage ceremony today. Everyone was really happy! Now we are strapped for cash because we just returned from China. I got thrown a lifeline with an IT help desk role in Brisbane. I have another potential job in Sydney as a lab tech but I need to wait for the job applications to close. I have casual work lined up for assissting passengers on and off cruise ships.

So the number one concern for me at the moment is leaving my newlywed bride in Sydney whilst I work in Brisbane until something full time comes up in Sydney so we can be together again. She wont leave her job.

I’m debating what to do. I haven’t explored the option of the fly in fly out mine jobs. I fly up to Brisbane on thurs (company paid return flight). The big question is whether to take it or not. Maybe if I can come homd on weekends but there is a lot of weekend work in this job and the need to be on call. What would you do? Take the job or wait for more in Sydney to be with your partner. Both things are important and the family are divided on their opinions of staying or going…
Thankyou for the support. First, let me mention that I chose to tough it out in China between jobs so that we could be together. I wasn’t returning to Australia that easily.

So, I will go to Brisbane and sus out the situation and see if I can get weekends or a couple of days during the week to return to Sydney to spend time with the wife. If it doesn’t seem that good, I’ll work the casual jobs in Sydney until I get a decent full time job in the new year. I had planned to apply for the grad jobs in Sydney in Feb-April next year anyway…

Answer by Meg
Honestly, I don’t understand how it could even be an option to be permanently living in a different city to your new wife… That’s not to say I dont think she is being stubborn… Hell yeah she is if she won’t compromise… But you married her probably knowing she was like that… So I guess you have no choice then to look for a job in Sydney if she flat out wont leave. But if it was me, I’d expect some compromise from her.

Is this a good eye catcher and 1st paragraph to a book?

Question by 7576reds: Is this a good eye catcher and 1st paragraph to a book?
P.s. Keep in ind im only 16

Prologue: Let me start off by saying the worlds in great shape, its year 2027 and we have civil war in Russia…..again.
There’s a big mound of dirt of what WAS China, corrupt and taken over by war, what was once a country of 1.5 billion is now nothing but death, death is everywhere.
The American and Canadian economy has collapsed; people line the streets for bits of scraps.
Thousands die of hunger, disease and exposure every day.
South America has been consumed by the drug war, being civil is not an option, kill or be killed.
Germany has reverted to Dictatorship, 3rd times a charm?
Global warming has caused massive flooding all over the world, earthquakes are a part of everyday life, wild fires have destroyed most of the livestock and food supplies.
The world is collapsing in on its self.
Count your blessings because chances are you wont have them for much longer.

CH 1:
“Sir” SSG. Nick saluted “At ease son, what news have you brought from the East?” General Bryce replied. “Sir” SSG. Nick said laying out a map “we have had a total of 13,000 soldiers killed in France, 22,000 in Italy, Poland and Russia and 7,000 in Spain. The Germans have turned to unrestricted submarine war-fair and have sunk 49 of our battle ships, 67 U-boats, 45 Air craft carriers and have shot down 13 cruise ships, causalities have totaled of 10,670 soldiers and 3,056 civilians.” “Cruise ships?” General Joseph said bewildered “Yes sir” SSG. Nick Replied “but im afraid it only get worst, Muslim, Christian, Jewish, Islamic and even some Buddhist Extremist have formed a terrorist group called the “Holy Cleansing” little information is know about them” “Nothing?” General Bryce sighed with hopelessness in his voice “Well….” SSG. Nick said trailing off “Out with it man” General Bryce said turning toward SSG. Nick “If you have something to say, speak it!” SSG. Nick stared down at the floor ashamed he said anything. After a tense silence SSG. Nick came to attention “We have captured one of the Extremists leaders and is being held in a maximum security cell for questioning and torture.” General Bryce looked down upon SSG. Nick with disgust and hate in his eyes “Why was I not told!” He bellowed “We have let thousands of men die and it could have been prevented!” “Why was I not told!?” He repeated. SSG. Nick hesitated but managed to croak a few words “The over lookers of the torture were supposedly looking out for the greater good.” “I know little about the operations.” “Take it to me NOW!” General Bryce Demanded “Im afraid I cant make that happ…” “Unless you want to be placed on the front lines of the Russian Western front, I highly suggest you make it happen” General Bryce said calmly. SSG. Nick twitched “Yes Sir” He said shakily “Please Follow me.”

Writing: Work on your writing technique. Too many SSg’s thrown in there and very hard for some people to read.

Idea: Its been done before but dont stop the book. It can turn out very well if you dont stick to the main idea, and have new ideas and turns in it .

Would I read it: Its not my type of book, but dont be offended, i like reading and writing strictly sci-fi books and pyschology books so dont worry.

Q&A: Where is a good place to go on vacation?

Question by psychosolodiver: Where is a good place to go on vacation?
I want to go on vacation, but can’t decide. I am single, so I want to get lucky. I also like diving, cage fighting and adventure. I have ruled out Compton, Somalia, Libya and Afghanistan due to extreme danger.

I am seriously thinking about going to North Korea, but I hear it’s tough for an American to get a visa without bribing the embassy in China.

Maybe Northern Iraq?

Antarctica is too expensive.

Any ideas? Please give me some good ideas! No cruises! They’re too boring.
