The city that never sleeps: New York! It’s a city that always makes me want to travel to. No matter if it is the Empire State Building, the Central Park, the Madison Square Garden or the Times Square- everything in New York is gigantic and breathtaking! But there is another side to this huuuuge city and that’s the Rockaway Beach. There you will have the possibility to walk on the sandy beach and to enjoy the tranquility while collecting some shells. Everything here is a little smaller and quieter and you get almost the impression of being in a small town in the United States.
So for those of you who want to experience New York from two complete different sides check out the deal on expedia.co.uk. You fly from London Gatwick to the JFK Airport and stay 10 nights in the 3-star Playland Motel (5/5 on TripAdvisor) for only £606 per person. The motel has only one review but it’s a really informative and positive one. Furthermore each room has its own style representing different themes and it has a restaurant. I would give it a try :)
Your way from the airport to the motel is quite easy by taxi because it’s only 4.2 miles away. But the cab costs roundabout £20, so if you want to save some money just take the public transports which will only cost £5! Take the A-train from JFK Airport to Howard Beach and from there to Beach 96 St. Then it’s just 200 metres to the Playland Motel. So it’s also easy to get to the city centre but it will take a while to get from Rockaway Beach. It’s around 1 hour for example to the Empire State Building.
