What do I do? I get there at 5am, the next flight does not leave until 8 hours later. Go into NYC? The bus to Grand Central doesn't start running until 7am probably. Spend 8 hours in the airport lounge? Walk around the "great" city of Newark? Hate Jersey.
Read a book, dummy.
Thanks, very helpful. I never thought of that one.
Seems like you already know the limitations of your plan and just want to vent. Thanks for the thread OP.
what is the total journey?
hire a room and get a personal massage
Im in the same boat, but Paris. From what I've been told you either sleep off the 8hrs in a hotel at day rates or in a lounge.
Otherwise see if you got time to visit the city.
We don't have "day rates" at hotels here. You might be able to find a hotel that charges by the hour in the city of Newark. They don't advertise on Expedia though, and it would be weird to stay there without a hooker and a supply of meth
Do not set foot in Newark. The only places where its somewhat safe for a non melanin enriched individual to go to is the small radius surrounding NJIT and Rutgers, Ironbound (literally just industrial wasteland), and Preduntial Center and Penn Station
EWR sucks. 8 hours isn't really enough time to go to NYC. Traffic crossing the river can be 2-3 hours plus it's 1-2 hours to go through security. By the time the bus gets go Gramd Central it'd be time to start going back to EWR.
This. NYC is a shithole
If it's aSunday should be OK
That's what I was thinking, I don't want to be riding the bus all day in traffic back and forth from the city. What about places in Jersey? Indoor skiing at the American dream mall?
Yes, I know NYC is a shithole, that's why I fucking left. Best move I made, can't believe I spent my whole life there. However on this trip I had to get separate tickets on the way to Ireland, so I have 8 hours in Newark fucking "Liberty" international.
Take an uber to AJs, strip club in Secaucus thats pretty fun. Get cheap drinks and some lap dances.
