- Hitching Spots – Using your parents’ car can sometimes be more economical than renting one. If your parents are from Brooklyn (or Monsey) you can hitch there pretty easily from the first entrance of Whispering Pines (Squankum Rd and Kennedy Blvd) You could also hitch back from Brooklyn at the end of Ft. Hamilton Ave right before the BQE (by the bus stop).
- Manhattan Parking – We recommend using spothero.com when parking in NYC. It can save you between 30-70% on parking costs versus paying for a garage on the spot. The downside is that you can sometimes find parking on the street at a much lower cost. There are codes to use to get money off for your first park.
- Minyanim & Z’manim Anywhere – If you are going out of town for a date and need to find a minyan, check out godaven.com (new & improved). For the latest z’manim including mincha gedola and shkiah check out myzmanim.com. Alternatively, you can text any zip code of any location to 516-261-6262 and it will text back all z’manim relevant to that area.
- Brochos Textline – On a date and forgot the brocha for a certain food? Don’t mumble a Shehakol or ask her for the brocha – text the name of the food to (612) Brochos or 612-276-2467. (tip: explain before texting)
