New York NY: Fly Uber Copter From Manhattan To JFK


If you’re enrolled in the Uber Platinum or Diamond plans, and have the cash or business expense account, you can book it. That way you’ll avoid the slow two-hour ground traffic to and from the John F. Kennedy Airport.

Of course, it’ll cost a bit more than a cab ride, from $200 to $225 each way, and more during the busiest hours. The choppers are owned and operated by HeliFlite, based in Newark, N.J., each with a two-pilot crew. For more info, go to www.uber.com/blog/new-york-city/uber-copter

Senior Destination: First-time Traveler's Guide to Russia PDF Print E-mail

When most senior travelers today were young, the Soviet Union was our enemy. It threatened to blow us all to hell with atomic bombs, unless of course, we wiped them out first. Those of us who did wartime duty in Korea and/or Vietnam in the 50s, 60s and 70s, were familiar with Russian weapons. They were used to shoot down our planes and kill our GIs. In those days of the Cold War, not many of us had any wish to visit Russia.

Senior theater review: Old Blue Eyes Is Back, Sort of PDF Print E-mail

We don’t usually recommend specific entertainment performances, but we recently had the pleasure of attending a Las Vegas impersonator show called, “The Concert That Never Was”. We went reluctantly, because we’ve never been thrilled with fake stars, a feature in Las Vegas designed to drag money from seniors. You can’t go anywhere in Sin City without running into a pseudo Elvis hosting a supermarket promo, singing at a wedding chapel or crooning in a hotel bar lounge. Or a phony Madonna dealing blackjack, or a fake Dolly Parton serving drinks. All part of the glitzy Vegas scene, but who needs it?
