Hi all - any recommendations for lunch/dinner spots in Manhattan? ... food trucks or BBQ places. Was thinking Dinosaur but that's in Harlem or Brooklyn, maybe a bit far.

Park Avenue and E 46th / 47th Sts. Lotsa food trucks around there.

6th Avenue from W 42nd up to W 57th.

If they still have the outdoor popup shops, Broadway from 42nd to 34th Sts.

What are some baby-friendly activities and restaurants to check out in NYC?

My wife and I regularly used to visit NYC during American Thanksgiving. We're going back this year with our one year old daughter in tow. She's not walking on her own yet and she's very easygoing (not worried about her throwing a fit somewhere).

We'll be going to the Macy's parade and having a Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday. Other than check out the Central Park Zoo, we don't have much else planned. Any suggestions?

We're planning to take the Amtrak Acela train from NYP to Washington DC in September after we finish our NYC to Halifax to NYC cruise. Just wondering what would be better: Buy the tickets online in advance or buy in person at Penn Station?

Trains are like planes... as the seats fill the prices go up
Buy in advance (further the better) for best selection / prices

We'll be travelling to NYC during the summer with two other families, total 6 adults and 7 kids (4 to 18 yrs old). We are driving so need a place with parking for three cars. Would an Airbnb in New Jersey (Jersey City, Union City) be our best option? Looking for a location and a place with easy access to public transportation and still close to Manhattan. I also read that Airbnb in New York City is illegal is staying less than 30 days.
