  1. 1 hour and 15 minutes. I live in Manhattan and used the subway. There are definitely garages around there. Street parking as you know in the city is a matter of luck...
  2. Hi, based on mine at Federal Plaza (the ones in the District Court are different): went to 3rd floor, held in a large waiting room while the security officers organized an orderly process to filter into the actual ceremony room once in the ceremony room, lined up to have a very brief interview with an officer to hand in the N445 and go through your answers quickly. There were 4-5 officers doing this process shown to a seat where you found a flag, letter from President and information from USCIS about being a citizen ceremony started about on time: speeches from senior Field Office personnel; stand up (and stay standing) when your original country of citizenship is called, national anthem, swearing oath and some festivities handed your Naturalization certificate while in the row you were seated in (USCIS was really organized about this) on the way out of the room, a bunch of people were waiting to do voter registration - 2 minute process with forms filled in on the spot I had separately completed my passport applications ahead of time and had an appointment at the Post Office an hour or so later to apply for the passport. I did expedited and got the passport in about a week. If you plan to do something like this, go to the FedEx store near Federal Plaza where you can make a photocopy of the Naturalization certificate, which is necessary for the passport application (both the original and a copy are needed). Good luck and enjoy it.
  3. Clearly USCIS is wrong - a reviewer not paying attention to the file and just finding an excuse for an RFE without doing homework. You had every right to make the application as the spouse of a LPR at a time when F2A was current. I suggest you write back with a photocopy of the front/back of the Green Card and printout of the State Dept visa bulletin page for October showing F2A was current, with a cover letter saying you applied on that basis. Good luck.
  4. I think you may have a problem if the GC was not deleted... there's a long thread over at the flyer talk forum about LPR to citizen changes for Global Entry and people posted about problems with the GE machines requesting the GC if it had not been deleted.
  5. hi, you will have to go to a Global Entry enrollment center to have them delete your GC and add your US passport as the primary ID document. GE offices do this change on a walk in basis, no appointment needed, except apparently for the NY Bowling Green one. I did mine at JFK airport. Although other changes to your profile can be made on the trusted traveler website, GC to US Passport is considered a significant change that only a GE center can do in person. I hope this is helpful.
  6. @sgzryou will have no issues getting a passport in time. Check out the passport tracker thread in the subforum. I got mine in about 6 working days which is pretty normal for expedited. There is also the urgent option at the NY passport office - go there with flight details and they will process same day or shortly thereafter Congrats on getting your oath and good luck to everyone still waiting!
  7. @Sherjaassuming one year to the interview is safe for NYC right now. Brooklyn cases getting moved to Newark helped so it's possible you could be somewhere nearer the 9-10 month mark.
  8. Updating my tracker now that everything is in hand. Just realized this is the last tracker I will ever update.... it's been a journey!!

  9. @sgzrI still think it is a bit early for you to get concerned about it, though I totally understand your anxiousness and desire to just get it over with! Regarding your other question, I got the notice on September 27 for an oath on October 11. I don't think in NYC they would give you less than a week notice.
  10. Updating the tracker after receiving my PP today. So impressed with how quickly State processes the expedited applications!

  11. congrats @vetinariand thank you for coming back on here to post the outcome, which will definitely be helpful for future applicants. FWIW I also believe that lawyers are not consistent with their advice about when the 4 yr + 1 day rule should be relied on. I think field office plays a material role in this (I know it shouldn't). For example my understanding is that the NYC field office generally can get over ONE trip over 6 months if there is a good reason, but if there are two then there is a major problem. Other field offices may have a more rigid practice around it.
  12. congrats @CDN(ON)-USA(VT)that is super quick especially for non-expedited!
  13. @sgzr100% ignore the estimates. they have no bearing on the relationship between a candidate who has been approved and his/her oath date. i would bet you will have your oath within 3-4 weeks. they are doing oaths very frequently at 26 Federal Plaza now; many morning interviewees have the option to do same day oaths in the afternoon which mean other successful candidates have more spaces in the regularly scheduled ones.
