Can someone please advise me as to whether I should venture out to Monsey for Shabbos from New York??? I have work on Monday and I’m nervous I’ll be stuck there!! What should I do???August 25, 2011 8:03 pm at 8:03 pm #802271a maminParticipant
Better safe than sorry. Stay home.August 25, 2011 8:05 pm at 8:05 pm #802272yummy cupcakeMember
last i checked, monsey was IN new york. unless there is a different monsey you are traveling to, or you are in a different new york, that does not have a monsey. so now, what’s your question?August 25, 2011 8:08 pm at 8:08 pm #802273
yes come to monsey!!!!!!!!!!!August 25, 2011 8:10 pm at 8:10 pm #802274ronrsrMember
Should I take a kayak to Quincy or Nyack?August 25, 2011 8:10 pm at 8:10 pm #802275mikehall12382Member
Rent a car so you can leave whenever you want after shabbos…seems pretty simple to me.August 25, 2011 8:12 pm at 8:12 pm #802276
people from Brooklyn/BP area think that they are it! (everyone else is OOT)August 25, 2011 8:16 pm at 8:16 pm #802277
rent a car??? i might as well buy a house with that kinda money. i have my own dinky yeshivish car anyway. and we are it adorable get with itAugust 25, 2011 8:20 pm at 8:20 pm #802278
hun- broaden your horizon. there are good places outside of BP!August 25, 2011 8:20 pm at 8:20 pm #802279be goodParticipant
I’m also going to Monsey for Shabbes- but plan on leaving right after.
What’s the problem? They said the hurricane will hit on sunday…
ronrsr: LOL thanks for that 😉August 25, 2011 8:58 pm at 8:58 pm #802280happy faceMember
BE GOOD, check out the latest update on the storm. they say it will start Shabbos afternoon!!!August 25, 2011 9:18 pm at 9:18 pm #802281MiddlePathParticipant
Perhaps there is a bus or a train? Or maybe you can find a ride back?
I’ve spent shabbos in Monsey a few times, and they were all wonderful experiences. And as yummy and adorable said, there are other places in New York, and even the country, besides Brooklyn.
Funny story- I once told someone from Flatbush that I live in such and such city (to remain nameless), and he asked, “Is that a suburb of Toronto?” And the city is in midwestern U.S.
I’m not trying to put down anyone, this was just a funny story with one person. I’m sure many people from Flatbush are very knowledgeable in geography.August 25, 2011 9:23 pm at 9:23 pm #802282gregaaronMember
Go – the overwhelming odds are that you’ll either be able to go Motzei Shabbos, or, if it starts that early, you should be fine Sunday night. (Just check traffic reports before heading back.)August 25, 2011 9:33 pm at 9:33 pm #802283farrockawayParticipant
They aren’t saying it will be any worse in monsey than in brooklyn, you just may not be able to leave. Far Rockaway on the other hand…August 25, 2011 10:44 pm at 10:44 pm #802284deiyezoogerMember
NYC is actualy closer to the storms path, Come to Monsey, we love company!!August 26, 2011 12:35 am at 12:35 am #802285amazingirl97Participant
no i think they said that the hurricane was gonna start saturday nite and continue till sunday nite so im not sure if you should go. i would advise you NOT to go for your own safety.August 26, 2011 3:35 am at 3:35 am #802286ronrsrMember

in that case you should come to monsey and hopefully ull be back on time for your job. sometime between sun and mon ull have to work it out to be home. do you think the flights are going to all be cancelled?August 26, 2011 2:08 pm at 2:08 pm #802289bombmaniacParticipant
“yes come to monsey!!!!!!!!!!!”

Adorable, Flights have been cancelled already. Jetblue cancelled tons of flights alreadyAugust 26, 2011 5:55 pm at 5:55 pm #802293The last RebelMember
Not only should you come for shabbos you should move here as wellAugust 26, 2011 6:00 pm at 6:00 pm #802294HealthParticipant
My son went and I hope he stays a few days or a least till Mon.August 26, 2011 6:42 pm at 6:42 pm #802295Mr TaxmanMember
Monsey will probably be safer than NYC. Best place to be is in the Country so the further north you venture – i think that would be the safest – based on current prediction of the hurricane.August 26, 2011 6:53 pm at 6:53 pm #802296bombmaniacParticipant
“are you talking to me?”
yes, deniroAugust 27, 2011 10:10 am at 10:10 am #802297Moshiach please comeMember
It’s shabbos now, so you are either in monsey or somewhere else enjoying your shabbos.
Your decision has been closed..August 28, 2011 3:27 am at 3:27 am #802298
