Also, for anyone who's interested, here's a little cost estimate for the meetup if this is helpful to anyone. It's not precise, but I hope it gives everyone an idea of what to expect:

Transportation: $8.25 for a 1-day unlimited pass...for 2 days, the cost would be $16.50. However, unless we're going to take at least 4 subway rides per day, then a fun pass would be a bit overkill.
Museum of Sex: $14.50 + tax
Food (assuming we stick to fast food places only): should be no more than $10 or so. If anyone here really insists on going to at least one expensive restaurant, contact me and I'll try to see if I can work something out.
Bowling: $14-$15ish (including the shoes). Prices may vary depending on the time of day.
Booze: I'm not even going to bother estimating the cost; figure it out yourself.
Hookers: See above. And Valz, if you read this, that smile I gave for you on Stickam tonight counts, so I'm expecting a high-class hooker worth at least $200.

Some other places of interest that we might stop by at, depending on everyone's time, budget and level of interest:

Transit Museum: $3 for people ages 3-17, $5 for people 18 and older.
NY Aquarium: $13 per person. Even if we don't go in there, hanging out by the beach in Coney Island is a worthwhile experience in itself.

I haven't set any of this in stone yet, so bring on the suggestions if you have any.

And of course, if you're staying in a hostel or a hotel, those costs should be factored in as well, although prices around here vary widely.

I recommend Chinatown. Cheap food, sights, an arcade, word.

I've been wanting to go to one of these for a very long time. Since I live in Connecticut, getting to New York is now problem for me. I could hop the Long Island Ferry or take the train. The problem is money. I don't have any money now, and since I don't have a job at current I can't predict how much I'll have come March. My status thus far is "maybe".

Good to hear. I was wondering where you've been lately.

Man we've been trying to get you to smile for months and Valz just comes in and promises you strippers and you just get all cheeky and everyone misses it I hate you

You didn't miss much, honestly. All I did was draw a stupid smiley face with the words, "There, I smiled" above it, showed it on cam, and I counted that as a real smile.

Also on the to-do list is make Gory smile about SOMETHING, and take a photo of it

Flash those rosy tits of yours, he will smile on instinct.

For those of you not familiar with the area around Bryant Park, here's what it looks like.

The South East entrance of the park on 42nd and 6th Avenue is on the right side. Most likely, we'll all be beside the steps on either side. Reaching the area by subway is pretty easy: take the B, D, F or V trains to 42nd Street, or the 7 to 5th Avenue, and simply find this entrance. Shouldn't be too difficult.

I'm from the UK but I was wondering about visiting NY at some point anyway so this interests me, I'm curious though, I am 18 and old enough to drink in the UK, is it true you need to be 21 to drink in the US? :/

What's wrong with living in Queens?

Would you rather live in the middle of nowhere with no transportation, few businesses, and with the nearest grocery store at least 1-2 miles away?

But yeah, there are some select Queens neighborhoods I mostly tend to avoid and that I think aren't livable. I consider Jamaica to be the most dangerous neighborhood, and I only go there for the Central Library and the 165th Street bus terminal. Many parts of Far Rockaway, Ozone Park and Flushing also have pretty high crime rates and questionable people just loitering outside buildings.

I don't know if I'll have time to take everyone to Queens when this meet happens, but I do want to spend a somewhat significant amount of time outside Manhattan. I think Brooklyn has quite a bit to offer...both the Transit Museum and the NY Aquarium I mentioned in my first post are in Brooklyn, but in completely different neighborhoods. Most of that will probably be reserved for the second day, though.

Who's going to attack you in Flushing? The Koreans who took over the neighborhood almost 20 years ago? I lived there for 22 years before moving near Jamaica nearly 8 years ago. I've found both to be pretty safe parts of the city.

or you can be a good pal and share your beer with under aged folks.

Technically I would not be underage in my own country :P

But seriously though, 21 is way too old to wait, especially as you get to drive in the US when you're like 16? I don't see the logic.

To answer your first question: many of the inhabitants of NYCHA's projects situated in Flushing. I guess I should have said the parts of the neighborhood where the projects are, because I've seen some pretty intense fights there at times. Then again, there tends to be a lot of fighting and questionable people around just about every NYC housing project. Don't get me wrong though...I still visit Flushing every now and then, and there are many parts of it that are tolerable, but I still wouldn't live there.

Jamaica, on the other hand...well, North Jamaica is walkable. Not livable though, because I often see a lot of questionable people walking around. Some of them even have the nerve to stop me and ask for money to get on the F train, and I just want to tell them to fuck off. South Jamaica sucks a lot more ass though.
