    I was just invited to NYC Pride (by a straight friend who lives in Manhattan).

    All ticket I looked at on Hotwire (from PHX) were $900+. I don't wanna pay more than $500.

    Still more than my target price.

    I'll just bitch out my friend for not inviting me sooner. icon_lol.gif

    Totally willing to do that. I don't wanna endure a 5+ hr non-stop flight. I'd rather stop somewhere to eat decent food. No rushes this weekend...just relaxations and lots of fun. icon_cool.gif

    Well, if I also rent a car I can get the price pretty damn low, but I'll already have a ride everywhere I wanna go...no need for a car.

    Flights to New York are insane this summer. I'm trying to go home to NYC in July and can't find any fares less than $450 round-trip from Texas. They should be $300 or below.

    Too bad paychecks don't increase to cover the cost of inflation. icon_sad.gif

    if you're up for a real pain in the ass, you could do a flight to philadelphia, take a 20min train ride to 30th street station, take the BoltBus to manhattan for about $25-30 round trip. it's actually quite easy, just gets dodgy if flights are delayed, and you'd have to move between modes of transportation. considerably cheaper though

    When it comes to domestic flights, Philadelphia is usually cheaper then any of the New York Airports. I have family in NY and family that often flies in to visit them from the west coast and it has always consistently been that way. This is not the case however when it comes to international flights. In fact its the opposite. As a result of this, I know many people around here (PA) that go up and leave out of Newark, JFK, or Laguardia when flying overseas. When they go it is almost always by train and they have told me the details many times but I never really paid that much attention since whenever I go to NY I drive. So if your looking for a balance between cost, time, & convenience, I would suggest flying into Philadelphia and taking the train up. I think you take the airport line up to Trenton NJ and then can get a train into the city. If you want to take the bus route, I'm sure its possible. Everytime I'm on the NJ Turnpike, the bolt buses are everywhere. I travel to NY quite often and it takes a little over 2 hours by car. Let me know when your going and I'll see if I'm headed that way. At least you'd get a free ride one way.

    If you want to consider additional airports, I believe you could get a similar setup of service through Balitmore MD, Providence RI, and Boston MA., although they are not as close.
