after 29 years of my life, I will finally go to NYC, the place I've been dreaming of. Will come on Nov 27th and will stay until Dec 4th. Will be travelling with my wife and my mom. We would like to see as much as possible, but I would also like to take my mom to Washington. What's the best way to go to Washington? I was thinking about spending 1 night there. What do you think? I also wanted to ask about some accommodation in NYC. Could anybody recommend some nice apartment, close to metro station? I'd like to stay in Queens or Brooklyn. We need something for 3 persons, nice, 100 USD / night max. All your help, suggestions, hints for NYC / Washington will be much appreciated. I guess NYC will be all about Xmas that time?
