I took my wife to New York to go to the Today Show. The price for the Navy Lodge was great at $101.00 a night , we arrived on Sunday evening with check-out Monday morning. Room was very clean and had the usual Navy Lodge mini frig and microwave. They will be renovating the Lodge in the spring so that may reduce room availability in the spring of 2014. Asked the front desk clerk how to get to the Staten Island ferry and she was spot on it is like a 10 minute drive from the Navy Lodge. When you exit Fort Wadsworth through the main gate stay on that road and it will take you to the ferry terminal which will be on the right. The cost to park at the terminal was only $8 for 18 hours and the ferry is free. If starting your day before 5am the ferries only run on the hour until 5am. The green subway line 4&5 will get you to Grand Central Station and the Rockefeller Center is a short walk from there or a cheap taxi ride to the show area. We also went to FAO Schwarz which is at the GM building on 5th Ave we walked there and enjoyed the holiday decorations on 5th Ave the different store had in place. Central park is across the street from FAO Schwarz and they start at 10am. Be sure to look at the pricing for the ride closely, It is $50 for a couple and $20 for each additional rider.
