First of all thanks to all of you who have written so much of useful information on this forum. You guys are active and dedicated.
We will be traveling to the NYC in the 2nd week of AUG. Air tickets are done. We am having some trouble in reserving a hotel.
Which Area? - For instance, priceline lists these areas:
Central Park South
Downtown - SoHo - Financial District
Empire State Building Area
Long Island City
Madison Square Garden - Convention Area
Times Square - Theatre District
Upper East Side
Upper West Side
Although, I can figure out their relative location from the provided map, how do I know which area is good in terms of safety (while walking in dark from subway stn to the hotel), Vicinity to attractions, Accessibilty for EWR, etc.
Are all of the above are called Manhattan Location?
We plan to use buy 7 day metro card and would like to use that most of the transportation.
Attraction - Plan is to go to the Rock, ESB, Liberty, Cirle Ferry, Madame Tussauds, Guggenheim, Central Park, Grand Central, Macy's, Bloomingdale and some other museums.
I might have some other questions on what to fit in each day. But, that will be another post.
Thanks and sorry for amy misspelling. I didn't really cross check.
