I headed up to NYC at the beginning of June to check out my living accommodations while attending graduate school over the next two years and the annual return of Governor’s Ball. Not matter how many times I’ve been to New York City, I always find something new and the city is always changing. Excited to be a temporary “New Yorker” over the next few years and continually explore one of the greatest cities in the world.
Another free flight courtesy of the JetBlue American Express card. Can’t beat the direct flight from Fort Lauderdale to La Guardia in just under two and a half hours. La Guardia also now has a AMEX Centurion Lounge, free if you have a Platinum or Centurion Card, so take advantage!
Hotels in NYC are pricey, but when you factor in all of the amenities you get access to, it’s somewhat worth it. I was very happy at the Ludlow Hotel, not only because it’s right across the street from Katz’s Delicatessen, but they provide free breakfast and wifi. The location is ideal, walking distance to SoHo, Brooklyn Bridge and any subway station you would possibly need. The rooms are cozy, and beautifully decorated. Highly recommend, just make sure to upgrade your room for a fantastic view!
