In New York, I stayed at 2 places. The first was @Q4hotel (hostel) in Queens, Long Island. I stayed there for 2 nights in an 8 bed, female dorm. I flew into Newark, New Jersey, at like 9pm, had to wait to get my bags and then order an Uber. There was some challenges in communications as the Uber drivers on the east coast are usually not from USA. That made for more fun though. It was a good cultural experience! haha. It took at least an hour to drive through Manhattan and over to Queens. Somehow I had entered the wrong address as my final destination. My driver kept insisting that my drop off point was in some sketchy neighborhood near a shipping side of some building. No people around. I kept insisting this was not my place. I asked if we could drive to the opposite (north) end of the road to see if address had been entered wrong. Sure enough.... I'm SO GLAD I insisted we keep looking. He just wanted to kick me out of the car in some crazy bad neighborhood at 10:30 pm. haha...In the end he was ok. I tipped him a bit for not kicking me out on the streets and I was very grateful.
