My only problem is (the reason I'm able to go) I have free airfare, but it's only on Southwest, and Southwest only flies into ISP in Long Island.

So flying in Thursday night, I don't know (since I've never been anywhere east of Colorado) how the hell I'm going to get from ISP in Long Island to our hotel in Jersey City. And since my flight gets in @ 7:30 p.m., I'm stressing (already) a little about being in a completely foreign place and trying to find my way about at night.

How much would a cab from Long Island to Jersey City be? (I know nothing about cabs, we don't use them here in Southern California.)
Don't freak out. When I moved to NYC I was 22 years old and arrived alone at the Port Authority at midnight (which at the time was a much more horrible neighborhood than it is now) and hailed my first taxi and never had any problems for 15 years.

But I'm a little out of touch with ground transportation in Long Island. Check out the airport info page and make some phone calls I guess.

Or Headache might be able to assit you better.

But I'm guessing a taxi will cost you approximately two arms and one leg. Check out the buses and trains.

3. a trip, as by an official or legislative committee, paid out of public funds and ostensibly to obtain information.

Yeah, it's the latter.



Actually, I wouldn't be flying across the country if it wasn't both Radiohead AND Underworld. That's just a combo I couldn't pass up.

Otherwise, I would've just waited for the Radiohead dates here in So.Cal.

Plus, well, I've never been to New Jersey or New York, so . . . something new and exciting for me.

It's always good to add new states.



I won't be adding any when I go to Georgia and NC to see Radiohead.

I was just wondering to myself earlier where you were. I haven't seen you post in this thread in a while, so I figured you must've died or something.

Are you going to All Points West?

Yeah....Joyful nailed it: two arms and a leg. You would be better off hiring a car than getting a taxi. Either way, it may be as much as airfare.

This is going to be quite the hike. Newark is not that far from Jersey City, so you are looking at 65 miles.

I went to my first year of college in Jersey City. If you use public transportation, you would have to take the LIRR (Long Island Railroad) from Islip to NYC (Penn Station). From Penn Station, you could take the PATH train to Jersey City. You are looking at quite the journey.

Is that just them? Who else is playing at this festival?

Never mind. I see the artists now on that page.
