With NYC at its busiest over the holiday season, it’s no wonder that airports are shuttling flights to and from the city faster than you can keep track. While you are in transit or a long layover, the problem of having a lot of baggage on hand need no longer be a deterrent to appreciating all that the glorious city has to offer.
Vertoe provides short-term (a few hours) and long-term (several days) luggage storage plans, across multiple convenient, easy to access locations across NYC, where you can drop in, hand over your bags and be able to spend time in the city at leisure. Super simple to book online, with transparent cashless payments and a guarantee of $1000 on stored items, Vertoe ensures peace of mind for as little as $5.95 per day.
Particularly suited to busy commutes is the location in Flushing, Queens. Strategically situated close to both JFK (10–15 mins) and LaGuardia (8–12 mins), Te-Amo is a great convenience store that not only stows your extra bags, but is also a delightful source of information for things to do around Queens. And what’s more? You can quickly grab a cup of coffee (or beer), a bite to eat, and buy metro cards, phone cards or anything else that you may have left behind! Go out and enjoy the sights, catch that elusive performance, read a book at a cozy coffee shop or make plans with friends and family in this cornucopia of culture.
A hub for adventurous art and delectable cuisine, head to Queens for a truly memorable trip. Visit the must-sees MoMA PS1, Noguchi Museum for inventive art and stop by the Museum of the Moving Image for a delightful film experience. A magnet for sports fans, catch the best of the US open action and witness the Mets play baseball at Citi Field. Stroll along the sprawling Flushing Meadows Corona Park and take in the stunning flora at Queens Botanical Garden. Gastronomes rejoice! Sample some of the city’s finest Greek and Mediterranean fare in Astoria, an array of scrumptious dim-sums at Flushing’s Chinatown or the best authentic Indian fare at Jackson heights.
Whether you are stranded unexpectedly, decide to get social, or just choose to go exploring on a whim, if you find yourself in NYC with some time to spare, don’t stress over carry-ons anymore. Get a quick ride to the nearest Vertoe location and within minutes, be free to embrace the irrepressible energy of the city.
