This being your hometown I nominate you to make a wiki

Hotels (points), shuls, kosher food and must see sights. I'm sure Davidmal will help you format it if you give him the info

I was there 2 weeks ago and ate at Alef Alef. The Shabbos meals came out to $35 a person and were very good. They have Friday night dinner and Shabbos lunch. It is Heimeshe food. There is a Shul next door as well as the Mizrachi Shul a few blocks away. You need to bring passports to get into the Shul’s. I stayed a the Intercontinental which was about 20 minutes away and a very easy walk.
