It's basically Brooklyn. The hipsters are inevitable.

My boyfriend has only been to nice track events so he thinks they're all like this. So naturally I will be taking him the Wood Memorial. Cold, ugly track for a G2..

For me yeah. But he's a racing infant. The Derby prep is what he is excited for.

I took (well, coerced) a few of my friends there in 2009 for the Wood. One of them went to sleep in the car for about 5 hours during the races. Hey, at least he placed a few bets first. :lol:

You should have a nice sight line from there- preferred Grandstand- not to far from the line.

I ended up booking our trip through LaGuardia because it was about $200 cheaper per person and a MUCH nicer hotel (in a less dodgy-looking area). We're staying at the Fairfield Inn (Flushing).

iPads allowed in? I have much more storage on that than my iPhone 6!
