Hidden gems in NYC!

It was our annual family reunion and this year’s destination was the wonderful NYC.  My wife and I had never been there before and now we can’t wait to go back.  Originally, we had planned to use the subway system to get around; but, after spending a few days in Manhattan, we wanted to venture out to some of the other boroughs.  We heard wonderful things about shopping and sightseeing in Long Island and upstate, New York.  I googled NYC car rentalsand stumbled upon AAMCAR Car Rental, a local, independent, rental company.  They were a quick, 2 stop train ride up from our Marriott Hotel in Midtown.  I was amazed by the knowledge and helpfulness of their entire staff. They gave us suggestions on what places to visit and made us feel like we were back at home.  My wife was a little intimidated and heard some horror stories about rude people in NYC, but everyone we dealt with was an absolute gem.  The car they provided us was a black, 2012, Nissan Sentra.  We couldn’t believe it!  We have the same car at home!  This made our whole driving experience extremely comfortable.  On the first day of the rental, we visited Roosevelt Field and the Tanger Outlets in Riverhead.  The second day was spent in Williamsburg  followed by a Brooklyn Nets night game at the new Barclay Center.  We absolutely LOVE Brooklyn.  We returned the vehicle after two days without a problem.  The train station is located two blocks away from the rental office, so we were back in Midtown in 20 minutes.  We can’t wait to return to NY.
