Newark to Manhattan

Hello,

I was thinking of renting a hotel room in April in Newark. However, I am concerned about the transportation from Newark to Manhattan. Any suggestions or insights on what the transportation will be like, how expensive, and how long it will take?

Thanks!

Newark is not a safe city.

The airport itself is fine - the hotels outside the airport are really not very nice.

Transportation is set up to get people between the terminals and Manhattan - not between the area hotels and Manhattan.

Downtown Newark is not a particularly pleasant or tourist friendly place.

If you are looking to save money, Long Island City Queens has good economical hotels near the subway.

Thanks for the response. I think we might just spend a bit extra to stay in the nicer area.
