    You can take Metro North out of Grand Central which is a few long blocks east of Time Square.

    Walk or bus it on over to Grand Central -- follow 42nd, 43rd, or 44th streets east (away from the theatre district) until you hit the massive train station. Hope on a train and it's about a 50 minute ride to Peekskill and probably cost ya around $7 off peak (non-rush hours) one-way. You can check the train times at http://mta.info/ -- it's a commuter train but it's not 24 hour service and on the weekends you can end up with an hour wait in-between trains that service Peekskill...

    As for eateries, are you talking in NYC or Peekskill -- you didn't mention!

    what kind of food do you like and what's you budget ?

    If you like Italian which is always reasonably priced, go to Umbertos Clam House on Mulberry down in Little Italy, but be sure you take a seat with your back to the wall.

    While down there, get dessert at Ferraras on Grand, between Mulberry and Mott Streets

    Steak
    Sparks on East 46th
    del Frisco's on 6th / Avenue of the Americas

    We will be eating in NYC. Italian is a great, Chinese and seafood are a target when we go. I hear that those types of food are great there. I dont want to spend all of my money on food but it is part of the experience. I really like hole in the wall places that serve great food, over fancy places that serve great atmosphere and so so food.

    As far as transport. It sounds like renting a car is the best way to go if the trains dont run 24 hours. I dont know how long the wedding will last and I will be on a schedule for two days with all of the hoopla that goes along with being in a wedding. I dont know that I could take a chance that a train wont come.

    Thank you all for these suggestions, if you have anymore they are welcome.

    It looks like the latest train leaves at 11:38pm and then they start again at 5:12am

    You could also call about cab prices (just take the train to the wedding) - parking in NYC is very expensive ($35 - $55 a day at a hotel), so that might be cheaper than renting and parking a car.

    You could also take a cab to Croton Harmon which appears to have trains as late as 1am and as early as 5am the next day

    Umberto's isn't 5 start atmosphere, but it isn't a dive either. You'll like it. Sparks and del Frisco are a little pricey.

    For Chinese, try out Hop Kee on the Chinatown end of Mott St. or head east to Chinatown Chinese on Houston St. (prononced Howston).


    If you are bringing your wife, she might enjoy one of Lidia's restaurants, you know Lidia Bastianich from the Food Network. There's FelLidia on 58th, Esca on W43rd and Del Posto on 10th. Esca specializes in Italian seafood.
