I require to travel to Cornell University in order to conduct research in relation to my PhD. I am traveling from the UK. I will be in the states for around 2-3 weeks and also have to go to Washington D.C to research at the Library of Congress and the Smithsonian.
So, my question is, how to I get from Cornell from D.C? Would the best option be to fly to NY first and make my way out to Cornell, then travel down to D.C?
Also, I will be in Cornell for approx. 3-4 nights. Does anyone know of any cheap accommodation (I'm an impoverished student!)
Thanks in advance.
