PRACTICAL SHITE: For You Foreigners

TICKETS
Alright, I've looked around for tickets and the cheapest I've come up with is $723 from London, or $744 from bristol (that's around 360-370 quid, see below), but chances are I don't know where to look for UK-based tickets. Does anybody know where to look?

If possible you'll want to fly in to Newark Liberty Airport; this is a nicer, less-hassle airport, from which you can get right on the train and be sprawled on our sofa in about an hour; if it's considerably cheaper, you could also fly in to New York (either La Guardia or JFK), but it will be more crazy, and will require navigating the NY subway system before reaching the train to New Jersey. At least one of us will meet you at the airport when you arrive.

EXCHANGE RATE
At least once you've got your expensive tickets, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that you're coming here at the perfect financial time:the empire's economic juggling act is finally coming apart and the dollar, backed by our multi-trillion-dollar-debt, is steadily sinking, whilst our society has yet to be torn from its addiction to ostentatious lifestyles structured upon the endless extension of credit of every kind: i.e., the exchange rate is 2 dollars to the pound (2.3 as of today, to be exact, and it's gone nothing but down for the past four years).

So, whatever you bring in pounds, you can buy twice as much with in dollars. You bastards.

I think everyone would probably be dealing with pounds but in case, it's 1.55 dollars to the euro. (Sorry, I can't access foreign currency symbols on this thing).

okay. so I've arrived in New York City. well, a hypothetical NYC that exists as an indeterminate future coordinate. you know how it is. now what the fuck do I do?

and is Penn Station the station to be arriving at if I'm arriving by a gentleman's preferred mode of transport, which is to say the train?

Penn Station is precisely where you will want to arrive; then you will simply get off, find the correct New Jersey Transit train to get on to New Brunswick (they leave at least once an hour), and that will take you practically to our back door in a bit over an hour.

Alternatively, IF you're coming straight from Montreal or wherever, some Amtrack trains stop at New Brunswick or at Metropark, which is a bit closer to us...
