Yesterday I wrote about how beaches in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Delaware would be opening on Memorial Day Weekend.
This sounded like great news. However, in New York the openings applied to state beaches. The opening of local beaches were up to the local governments as long as they could follow the state’s rules. Continue reading Beaches in New York City Will Not Reopen Memorial Day Weekend
The NYC subway system is one of the largest in the world. There are over 470 stations located around the five boroughs. For $2.75, it’s pretty amazing how far you can travel.
Another nice things about the NYC subway is that it runs for 24 hours per day or at least it did until now… Continue reading NYC Subway System Will No Longer Run 24 Hours/ Day During Pandemic
We started using Airbnb during our trips back in August 2012.
After having a hard time finding a solid, affordable place in Singapore, we turned to Airbnb and it was an awesome experience. Since then, we’ve stayed in Airbnbs many times, some stays have been great, others not so much.
Over the years, I’ve come across various interesting and bizarre Airbnbs like a 6 ton potato, a vintage custom van, igloos, tents and more. Continue reading This Pizza Themed Airbnb Comes With… A Slice Of Pizza!
In late 2016 I wrote a review of the seasonal burger and ice cream stand Mister Dips.
The stand is actually an Airstream trailer located at the William Vale Hotel (in Vale Park) in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Mister Dips was created by restaurateur Andrew Carmellini, famous for restaurants like The Dutch and Lafayette. Both of those restaurants serve incredible burgers although they’re a bit pricer than what you’ll find at Vale Park! Continue reading Awesome NYC Seasonal Burger & Ice Cream Stand Mister Dips Expanding
Harry Potter books and movies are some of the most popular of all time.
Universal Studios Hollywood has The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter which draws huge crowds and long waits.
In the summer of 2020, New York City will be getting their own Harry Potter destination-worthy shop. Continue reading First Harry Potter Flagship Store Opening This Summer In New York City
Airbnb has been a good option to save money when hotels are too pricey. Booking through the site is also a viable option if you want to stay in a good location at a lower cost.
The problem with Airbnb is that you don’t always know exactly what you’re renting when you make a booking. Continue reading Apartment In Housing Project In NYC Was Rented Through Airbnb
Better late than never… The Michael W Travels family attended the 2nd Annual New York Pizza Festival in Bronx’s Little Italy on October 5th. (I’ve been a bit tardy on getting my post together.)
Last year, we attended the 1st NY Pizza Festival and had a great time. It was a no-brainer that we’d return again this year.
To change things up, we headed to the festival on the first day of the two day event. Due to this we didn’t have any recommendations to go by when choosing which slices to try. Continue reading Our Experience At The 2nd Annual New York Pizza Festival
Last weekend the Michael W Travels family attended the 2nd Annual New York Pizza Festival in the Bronx’s Little Italy. (Check out my review of last year’s festival here.)
Towards the end of the event, we saw a huge crowd forming by one of the stands so I went over for a closer look. To my surprise, I saw NYC’s Mayor De Blasio making pizza! Continue reading The Very Important Question I Asked NYC’s Mayor De Blasio At The NY Pizza Festival
On Saturday, September 28, Kim, Lucas and I headed to The Red Cube in Lower Manhattan for the start of the 5 Boro Pizza Challenge.
This wasn’t our first time competing in the challenge. Back in 2017, Kim, Theo and I completed the race and had a great time. (Find out about our experience here.)
For those of you unfamiliar with the challenge, here’s a description of what goes down. Continue reading Our Experience Running The 2019 NYC 5 Boro Pizza Challenge
I’m always on the lookout for great new pizza close to home and while traveling.
We’re pretty lucky with the fact that Brooklyn pizza is some of the best you’ll come across just about anywhere. There’s also plenty of great shops in Manhattan and the other boroughs.
We also like going on trips to Connecticut, Philadelphia and (to a lesser extent) New Jersey in search of great pizza. Continue reading Brooklyn Pizza Scene Gets Even Better, Head To F & F Pizzeria Now!
