Hiring a car and driver in NYC and/or Brooklyn

Jump to last reply

I want to take my 77-year-old mother to visit her hometown of Brooklyn (she hasn't been there since the 1950s). We have to take Amtrak because she won't fly. She also hates cabs and I don't trust myself driving in New York, so I'm wondering if it's possible to hire a car and driver to be available 12 hours a day for a few days (we will probably end up staying in Manhattan). I think we're looking for a tour-guide kind of thing with someone who will stick with us. We both have mobility problems so a lot of walking or subways is out of the question. Any thoughts? (And no, I am definitely not rich; I'll have to work overtime the rest of my life to pay for this).
