Has anyone been there? Anyone want to share their experiences or reccomend things to do?

Im going to stay there with some relatives in August. Will be staying in Hicksville Long Island which despite its name is apparently quite a nice place, if not a little boring.

Im hoping to go into new york a few times, is this hard? ive heard its a 1-2hour train/rail journey.

Thanks.

I knew someone who stayed at a hotel there. He didn't seem too fond of it. I'm sure it's not crime-ridden or anything, but as you say, there's not much to do. As I recall, it was about 2 hours away by train from Manhattan. The problem my friend had was that he wasn't near any train station. So it might be 2 hours by train, but you have to get to that train first. Assuming you will live closer to the train station or know someone who could give you a short lift, it shouldn't be a problem. The trains are pleasant enough if you don't travel during peak times.

Ha, this is my hometown...Hicksville NY. One of the easiest places to get to Manhattan from..just hop on the LIRR. Obviously from the age of the first post this is an old thread but I had to comment. And its not nearly 2 hours to Manhattan by train....more like 25 or 30 minutes

You're coming to Hicksville in August then I'm coming to London in September to go to UCL.
