Cheapest place to get a car detailed?
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Do your own research. Most people of Far Rockaway and 5 towns side think no, but that's not from knowledge of the eruv system.

The FR eruv ends at the toll booth.

Neither FR our 5T eruvim do. Maybe the Atlantic Beach eruv includes it though

There is a fully operational Eruv beginning and including the Atlantic Beach Bridge. All homes in Atlantic Beach are within ️the Eruv. The Eruv continues straight through to Long Beach. Only the beach is not within the Eruv.  The Eruv is checked weekly.

While weíre on the topic- most people think thereís an Eruv on the FR boardwalk. Thereís isnít. Except for the ONE BLOCK on the boardwalk from B9 to B10.

There is no pole beyond that on the beach side of the boardwalk to attach an eruv to. Hence no eruv.

As you walk from b9 westward, you can see the eiruv string if you look, and you will see clearly what @coralsnake is saying

I will IYH be going to a wedding in Far Rockaway at the White Shul in December. There will be many out of town guests, including myself. Are there any hotel recommendations? I was checking out Wingate by Wyndham JFK Airport / Far Rockaway, which is a mile from the White Shul, but someone was telling me it may be in a sketchy neighborhood. Can anyone confirm? Any other hotel recommendations? I known I can also do some of the JFK airports, but hoping I wouldn't have to pay as much for parking.

Correct on the neighborhood for the Wyndham JFK. Not saying you shouldn't stay there just that you should be aware. There are no hotels within walking distance other than that.

Is walking distance needed? Holiday Inn isn't walking distance

The holiday inn is a homeless shelter. 5 towns motor inn is fine for a night or 2

Walking distance definitely not needed. Plan on staying Moitze Shabbos and Sunday night. Prefer not a sketchy place/neighborhood, and it also doesn't have to be a 5 star place.

Probably any of these airport hotels on N. Conduit should be good. Crown Plaza, Marriot (not sure if they're open yet), Hampton Inn, Residence Inn, Courtyard. Unless ur on a very tight schedule, you should be fine (traffic in and out of the 5towns has been horrendous lately).
