I spent a week in Brooklyn, NY, to attend to eZ Conference 2015 in early November. A lot of things have happened after that trip, including Drupal 8 release party in Helsinki and DrupalCamp, both of them requiring quite a lot of my attention.
Anyhow, I flew in to New York with Finnair. Unfortunately, it was an older airplane and not the brand spanking new A350. But the flight was easy and also the waiting time in USA border control was tolerable.
I had booked an apartment through AirBnB, as it is way less expensive than a hotel, even for a single person. My apartment had a separate bedroom, quite big living room and a fully equipped kitchen. The neighbourhood was a bit rough looking and not in a positive way, but it looked worse than it was. There were plenty of grocery stores and small restaurants nearby, so my needs were well covered.
