Several members have submited e links to various destinations that might be helpful to tuggers arriving there. I have just recieved several for NYC.

I'm not sure this or travel section would be better, however, in order to instant access, check here for Eastern Areas of interest.

I will make a new area with webliks if you have some to include. (Under different cities or areas....but only in this area.

Put the e links in the general posting areas. I will move them here under the appropriate areas. If lists get too big, maybe admin would rather have the links in the review sections under the specific areas.

NYC Area WebLinks

I am putting this into a sticky at this time. There may be a consesus that it might be better placed in the Travel forum. However, what I was thinking was if enough Eastern cities were included, the stickies might get to large....unless we try one Easterm Weblink sticky, and include headings for each city or area we list. (ie-Boston, Charlestown, ) These lists might need to be fluid, because I’ve noticed many links seem to stop working after awhile.

(Both the NewYorkPass and the CityPass can be used to do a Circle Line Cruise. I know the CityPass is valid for 2-Hour Semi-Circle Cruise or 2-Hour Harbor Lights Cruise or 75 min Liberty Cruise(May 1 - Oct 31). I think you have the same options with the NewYorkPass but I'm not positive. However,
I know if you want to do the Circle Line Full Island Cruise (3 hours) with either pass, it's $5 per person extra.) (Also, circle line one free with one in Ent Book)
