Zen on the E Train
The NYC subways are the best. We took the E train to the plane for our return flight, as it is the quickest way to JFK (fare $7.50). Our trip total of $2110 included: four nights at the Wellington Hotel, two tickets for all of the above mentioned events; a schooner boat ride on the Hudson for two; two gourmet dinners (for two), two gourmet lunches (for two), one salad lunch (for two), one deluxe breakfast (for two) and pastries (for two). At $550 a day that left us with $90. Our basic travel budget could be tweaked for your needs.
Once a New Yorker - always a New Yorker. Now to unpack ... and plan the next trip.
