Hello, my husband and I are coming to New York April 18-21. I have read over some other posts and I only get more overwhelmed about planning what to do/see. We have not booked a hotel yet because Im not sure where we should stay. My question is should we save money by staying somewhere like Long Island City? Or would it be easier and more enjoyable for us as first timers to stay in an area like Times Square. I would like to keep our hotel under $300/night if possible. We want to see all the typical tourist things like Statue of Liberty, Metropolitan Museum of Art, ESB, Times Square, Brooklyn Bridge etc. Is there anything as a first timer we should not miss? I also would like to see broadway show Of Mice and Men... Has anyone saw it? Liked it? I am just so overwhelmed with planning where to stay and what to do. I also saw how people book attractions with neighborhoods. Are the subways easy to navigate? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Im 27 and my husband is 33.
