Hello Tom, I am staying with Howard near the 157 Street Subway Station. Yet, as best I can surmise, we need a nice place for Hobo to come, easy to Airports, and hopefully a restaurant area where we can talk, sit around, etc. Please think about this, your experience level is great, maybe together we can find the perfect "Home Away from Home." I am trying to tempt Mom Graham, and my 3 sisters, 1 brother, and all the Graham clan to come to NYC. Yet, we need a restaurant that is open all the time, and easy to walk in an eat, like home. Mom Graham has a bucket list dream of going to Paris, therefore,if I can find a hotel that is easy, loves Mom as much as me, understand empathy for 85 year old people, maybe I can get here to fly Fort Wayne to New York one day, stay for 3 days, then fly to Paris, stay a week or two, then fly back to NYC, stay a few days, and then to Fort Wayne. I want some new stories for people to tell, a new story, and a new life.

Andy, I was checking the prices of Hostels in NYC and the prices are $30 and up.some also have private rooms at additional costs. Not sure if this includes taxes I have not been to NYC in years.i was looking at train prices from DC or Harrisburg , PA and the price is $90 round trip. Not being on the ground in NYC and you need any help arranging the meet up call me on WhatsApp
Regards,
Tom

Tom, have you and your wife found a place to stay in New York yet? I will be visiting a friend in Philadelphia where I was born around that time and would love to come to New York for a few days and meet the hobos. Should be a fun time with lots of interesting stories.


Grinder1

Karen We hasn’t made any reservations yet, but will message you when we do. It will be fun.


Karen8265

Thanks.


Karen8265

Where are you staying? Do they also have private rooms? Would live a hostel but can't due to my snoring. It's as loud as a freight train. I would get beat up and who could blame them. Thanks. How long are you staying?


DesertTortoises

HI NYC Hostel. They mention private rooms but say that you must call.


Grinder1

My wife and I will be arriving Nov 10th & 14:57 Penn Station ,NYC
Leaving Penn Station ,NYC Nov 13 12:05.
RT each $94. 3hr 20 from Harrisburg , PA which is 1 hr 15 min from the house.Have not made any arrangements for a room. Will keep you posted


DesertTortoises

I have cancelled my hostel reservation. I now have a reservation at a Hampton Inn. I decided I didn't want to try the hostel shared room thing. I found a few pod rooms I was thinking about trying but took too long to decide. The less expensive ones I found disappeared before I booked.


Grinder1

Dave,
What is the address?


DesertTortoises

My wife told me she booked me a Hampton Inn. When I asked for the address she sent me this.

Radisson Martinique on Broadway
49 W 32nd St
New York
10001
NY
US
+12127363800

I guess I am now staying at the Radisson. This is a non refundable prepaid. I think I am really going to stay at this one. $729.35 total for the three nights.

Dave,
Not sure where we are staying in Manhattan but everything is very close with the subway and bus system. Some of the places we would like to visit is the Statue of Liberty, Ground Zero, ethnic neighborhoods. I haven’t been to Ensenada,Baje since 1987 when we lived in Orange County,Ca Have fun in the Baja

All Hobos
I have been researching accommodations in NYC and it is not cheap Paula and I are leaning toward renting a bedroom in apartment that the the owner/tenant will allow us to have kitchen privileges.( $105 for both) With kitchen privileges it will save us big dollars compared to eating out all our meals We are looking at the upper West Side close to the Hi NYC hostel ( Rate $60/$70ea. )There is the Hotel Marrakech (Rate $160) 3 minute walk from the HI NYC. The hotel has a coffee shop and a restaurant This gives everyone a different price option and still be close to everyone . Dave this area is 21 minutes from your hotel via the subway. ( Line 1)
Regards,
Tom & Paula


DesertTortoises

I figured anywhere along line one would be easy access to wherever we meet. I got frustrated looking for lodging.


skymountainman

I'll be in Panajachel Guatemala in the beginning of December if your there Andy I will see you at the Gringo coffe shop. Anyone else wants to meet up I can show them around, I know where everything is.


AllyTraveler

Tom, that is a great price! Looking for private rentals is a good option. NYC bound hobos - you may want to check out a hotel in NJ for more reasonable rates. Look at this website for ideas: www.njhotelsnearnyc.com. Super8 in North Bergen looks good. I may also recommend Secaucus NJ. Close and fast train in. You do lose the charm of staying in the city but most likely you would be traveling by train anyway to get around. I may be able to make it into the city for this but I am still unsure.


Grinder1

Ally
Very good website. Thanks for the tip
Tom & Paula


cwhayes1

I know New York pretty well. Any help I can give, I'll gladly provide! The more reasonably priced options fill up quickly, so book soon if you're staying in teh city - it's a busy time of year. I would go but haven't been verified yet :(

Karen8265

Tom, since you are arriving close to 3:00, did you find us a fun place to have dinner?


Gadget

Tom, I would appreciate if you took the lead, and found a place to eat on the 10th, maybe at 6-7 PM, so we can all go there to group up. I am leaning toward the Hostel for 2 nights. Anyone can get verified on the spot, and super verified, all in one trip, so show up, take a selfie, show each other ID's and pay the fee to Hobo 15 to verified member, and 10 to Hobo. I will drive a car from Orland, Indiana, stay 2 nights I think. Hope for parking... Life is good.


Grinder1

We will make reservations to eat on the upper West Side.


cwhayes1

I recommend the broadway hotel and hostel on the upper west side. Good to know I can get verified on the spot! Will Do!


Grinder1

We are arriving November 10 @ 15:00 and leaving on the November 13. We are a 10 minute walk from where Andy is staying Our cell number is +1 301 992 3915
Looking forward to meeting everyone
Tom and Paula

scumbuster

Sounds like a good time but I am stuck with travel plans the rest of 2018 and into the beginning of 2019. I am in Colombia now then in Ecuador mid November to the end of January.
I will be looking for a meetup location in 2019.
Morocco and Vietnam next year? Maybe... But until I book flights I am very flexible. I would like to go back to Pennsylvania in 2019 too. Been out of the US now over a year.


Karen8265

Andy and fellow hobos,
It is with a heavy heart that I am unable to make the trip due to a family matter. I was able to get my hotel deposit back. I will miss the chance to meet everyone. Should be a great time. If you get a chance, go to central park to see the colorful mandarin duck.

Mom redeemed her Christmas gift for 2017, I told her, call me, and I will come from anywhere on the planet. She asked me to stay in the USA until after January 5th. She needs my help. She is 85, it is our duty to take care of family, friends, and all of humanity.


BruceB

Andy, I am in Guatemala from December 5 to 15 too early for the meetup. Any chance of a smaller version on an earlier date?
