      A member of my family is wanting to visit New York for a couple of months. They are on a very limited budget and we have no idea as to cost of renting. Can anyone recommend places to stay,flat share,decent hostels, living with families etc etc. We have surfed and found lots and lots of adverts for apartments but would like to hear from anybody who has actually stayed in shared accommodation,or stayed with a family.or recommend hostels and the like. What would be an acceptable rent to pay per week for a couple of months.
      The preferred situation would be to share or stay with a family rather than a hostel as part of the process of visiting is to get to know people and everyday life.

      Many thanks

    • Is this location okay for an apartment in Manhattan?

      by nyholiday2010 Online Now Feb 13, 2010 at 7:57 PM

      Friends and I are travelling to New York for Christmas and New York.
      We have found an apartment but are not sure of the location, having not been to New York and not sure about the winter weather.

      The apartment is located on West 42nd St between 11th and 12th avenues.

      Is this location okay for shops and places to eat within walking distance, and is 3 - 4 blocks far to walk in winter to catch the subway? Not sure if this walk will be hard in snow after sightseeing all day.

      Also, the location seems to be close to major roads, is this likely to be noisy? Are the roads very busy?

      Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

The 6 year old is obsessed with national landmarks and going to NYC is his dream come true. We live in rural Maine and not sure how to go about taking a trip to Manhatten. Is it better to stay in a motel in Manhatten or across the river in NJ? Are the tolls expensive going back and forth? I noticed motel prices were a lot cheaper in NJ. Should we bring our car or find another way to get around Manhatten? Subway and bus with small kids?? Any suggestions? The only things we really want to go see is the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, Chrysler Tower and other famous buildings & Central Park Zoo. Thanks for your help. MainePatty
