    Everyone here knows that Jersey City is just across the way from NY, right? It's a heck of a lot cheaper to fly into Newark and the hotels there run for closer to $80 than the $100 range. I'm sure that our resident expert, Danalec99, would be more than willing to let us know where the bad parts of town are. I saw that you can get a room at the Ramada in Jersey City for $116 a night on hotels.com so that may be the better option for some folks. And that's only three miles from NY (so it says). This, plus, if we can make it, we'll have a vehicle that can seat six comfortably.

    I'm not picky about which city we stay in, however cheaper is better for me. I've checked flights going into JFK, but I'd be open to suggestions. I'm really not familiar with the area, so please offer any advise.

    hobbes, I'm in no way an expert! :).
    I just wrote to doxx seeking his help and in the meantime I shall do some research and get back to you guys soon.
    Jeff, don't worry about the ride.
    Traci, flying in to La Guardia or EWR (Newark) is generally cheaper than JFK.
    Are you guys looking to stay in one hotel?

    I'm not sure if I'll be able to stay overnight in NYC (depends on how busy I'll be that weekend, etc...), but if I do I'll probably prefer stay in Manhattan.

    Daniel, thanks for your message - if nothing gets in my way
    (work-wise) I'll meet with you guys. :mrgreen:

    I can't really recommend any (cheap/reasonable) places
    to stay - unfortunately our place is a typical Manhattan
    shoebox...
    but I have had tons of luck with hotwire.com in the past
    for hotels, flights and car rentals...

    That's cool... turns out it looks like I'll be going up as well very soon, but it's the weekend after you are (of the 24th). Too bad we're gonna miss by one week. But there'll still be November :)
