WHERE TO STAY
The stumbling block during a visit to New York is the cost of overnight stays, always very high, especially in Manhattan. A mid-level hotel has prices that are around $ 200 - $ 300 dollars per room and if these seem excessive you can go below $ 100, but you must give up your privacy by sharing your room with others in the city's hostels. To save money, you can also give up sleeping in Manhattan and choose to stay in a neighboring area, but in this case it is preferable to choose a property near a subway station. In this sense Long Island City, Queens, is a good alternative because it is only 15 - 20 minutes from Midtown in Manhattan.
An alternative to the classic hotel room are the apartments for rent that specialized companies, but also private citizens, provide. In this case, it is always better to rely on known sites and check, perhaps through reviews, the real condition of the property to rent.
