Re: 2009 US Open advice, help!!!
If you are a USTA member, you can buy the tickets online usually near the end of April. Just keep visiting the USTA site around that time and all the information will be there. (If you are an American Express cardholder, you can buy tickets even earlier).
As for hotels, if you have $$$, of course, stay in Manhattan. But if you don't have a lot of $$$, you can stay for less money near LaGuardia and some of those hotels have shuttles back and forth to the US Open.
Brooklyn is also an option, but there are some nasty sections there also so you have to know where to go.
Bottom line, if you can't afford Manhattan, go to an upscale name hotel in Brooklyn or Queens and you should be fine.
