Hi,
I just want to know whether I should use "before" or "after" in the following sentence.

"I went to New York before/after a week [STRIKE]or after[/STRIKE] a week". [STRIKE]in this sentence which one is correct before or after.[/STRIKE]

If both of them are correct, then [STRIKE]what is the correct way and method to use them[/STRIKE] which should I use with a past simple sentence?


Thanks.
Hello IstiyakDhamha, and welcome to the forum. :)

Let's assume the reference date is 20 June 2017.

If you went to New York on 13 June 2017, say "I went to New York a week before."
If you went to New York on 27 June 2017, say "I went to New York a week after."

If you meant something else, post below.
