The hotel has met my needs. You can't hear any airplanes at all. It was very easy to drive to. It has on site parking. The hallways are a little dingy but other than that it is pretty clean. I am sort of across the way from Citi Field. The subway is around the corner. (Through an interesting neighborhood) But we never felt unsafe, these kinds of things don't bother us. The train ride to the restaurant was super easy, and then we jumped right back on and continued to Manhattan where we completed phase two of our quest. A Thai dessert bar in the St. Mark's area. It was worth the subway ride.

Anyhow, I'm glad my wife enjoys the simple things. She really loves riding the subway around NYC. She is having a great time. My friends wives would have taken one look at the area and the hotel and just would have said "no."

Tomorrow I am off to the Natural History Museum, Krispy Kreme donuts at Penn Station and the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center. If things work out I might make it to Grimaldis Pizza under the Brooklyn Bridge.

Sounds like you guys are having a lot of fun.

The small and simple often end up being the biggest and the best! One of our most favourite Christmas memories is all the gingerbread houses we decorated, not the more expensive gifts we've given/received over the years.

This is what we ordered tonight....we went back a second time. The cake on the left is sort of crispy and toasty and soaked in honey. Thai tea creme brûlée and hot thai tea and green tea tiramisu.

Thanks Fred. It's too bad Christmas is so stressful with buying gifts. Decorating gingerbread houses is the way to go.

Hello Lamp,

Glad you got to experience the excellent desserts at the Spot on St. Marks.
Last summer, two New York friends and I visited the same place; I remember the green tea tiramisu and those little cakes very well.

If you're looking for authentic Neapolitan pizza in mid-town Manhattan, an excellent new spot has opened on 50th Street, just west of eighth avenue.

http://donantoniopizza.com/

One of the partners in Keste, down on Bleecker Street in the Village, opened Don Antonio's, which I prefer to Keste.

Warning: if it's crowded, it gets very noisy and hard to communicate with friends if you're over 60!

Cheers for the season,
Alan
