My girl and I are thinking about doing Times Square for New Years Eve this year. We've spent a few hours searching around hotels and stuff, when I suggested that I post here looking for advice on hotels and when to arrive, and all that jazz. Then off the cuff she says "I wonder if we could stay with one of them"...... So guys and gals, who lives in the NY region that plans to visit Times Square when the ball drops, and would like to shelter a fellow FTF member and his girl for a couple of nights? We'd expect pay you (cash or check) for your room. If you can't offer a room, perhaps you might be able to offer some advice, that goes as follows. We would plan on driving up and arriving in NY on the 31st (early morning). We'd want to stay the 31st, 1st, and head home on the 2nd (early morning). I know downtown pretty much gets busy right away on the 31st, but are the roads totally shut down, or could a traveler still make it with his car into their hotel, and then walk about the rest of the day? Your input is much appreciated!
