I don't live there anymore but I did for awhile. Subways don't go to NJ, something called the Path Train does, but it's pretty limited and I have no idea if it goes near where you are. Look into the Path Train, you'll have to transfer, but there may be an option. Otherwise you can take a cab I guess.

Anotehr option would be tolook for a hotel on Long Island/Queens. That way you can take the LIRR or a real subway right into Penn and you can walk to MSG (do they still do the draft at MSG?)

Hope that helps.

Well not quite as convenient but you can still walk it or take a cab pretty easy from Penn, you can even transfer on the subway, but if your not familar that might be more effort than it's worth.

If it were me, I'd look in western Long Island for something I could afford near a train station. Should be pretty easy to find.

If it were me I'd take a cab, or maybe a bus, i dont know how they run down there, to Hoboken and take the Path Train to the City. They have a bunch of stops. I usually take it right to the Garden which is 33rd, actually 34th i believe but the Path runs to 33rd. I think Radio City is on 6th if I'm not mistaken. And i believe the Path makes a stop at 9th. I could be completely wrong but thats the route i would take.

OK my bad, i would say take the Path to 33rd and according to my friend who lives in NYC its about a 20-25 minute walk to radio city. Or you can take a cab. Its about two miles I'd say.

yea....you have plenty of options...depends on how long you want the trip to take and what kind of travelling method you like...for tourism purposes your best bet may be taking a cab to the ferry and taking it across the river...it'll drop you about 10 blocks from Radio City

New Jersey Transit 114 bus runs from Bridgewater Commons to the Port Authority in NYC through eastern portions of the county.

Googled it for you. Port Authority (42nd & 8th Ave) is walking distance from Radio City (50th & 6th Ave).

priceline a place in lower manhattan, especially for a weekend because nobody stays down there, it's where the businessmen stay during the week and they are desperate over the weekend.

Hallal cart on 53rd and Avenue of the Americas. The one right next to the Hilton. Get the combination rice plate. It is the best thing about New York.

Yeah, your best bet is to just go to the train station and get on a train into the city. They run every hour to half hour depending on the station. That will take you into Penn station. You can walk to Radio City from there--it will take you about 15 mintues. It's easy.

^^^ or take the b,d,c, or f up to Rocafeller Center and walk a block to Radio City. Make sure you get the Hallal!

the pod on 51st between 2nd and 3rd is the ticket. more like dorm rooms but at less than $100 a night is a steal and your in a great neighborhood with good restaurants and bars. clean place to lay your head is all you need but rooms are tiny.

500-600 a night??? Maybe if you're staying right around where the draft is. Occupancy rates are pretty low in manhattan at the moment...while its true you probably cant find a decent one for less than 180-200 a night, widen your search in manhattan!

$140-$150 shouldn't be a problem for a 3 star place. Hell I was at the Tribeca Grand the other weekend and payed $225. Awesome hotel and great location in Soho.

When you factor in double occupancy and the cost of transportation for two people traveling into the city if you stay out in Bridgewater...the cost differential is just not worth the aggravation of the PA and the time of travel.

Go to the draft, then regroup at the hotel, then party like a rock star at night. NYC chicas > Bridgewater NJ chicas.

Friday and Saturday in the city...THEN if you want, Sunday out in Jersey. Thank me when you come back.

I totally agree...

The whole energy in the city is great that night....if you are lucky you might find yourself at a club or a bar where one of the "draftees" is hosting a shindig...

had that happen a bunch of years ago when Shockey got drafted

Manhattan hotels have been steeply discounting room rates. Nightly rates of $200 have become more common compared to two years ago when tourists had to go to Manhattan's neighboring boroughs to stay so cheaply. Owners of well-established hotels can likely weather the storm of temporary lower prices, but developers who funded recent projects with loans based on projected room rates of $400 to $600 may have difficulty meeting debt-service requirements.
Hotels that recently opened with low nightly rates include the 100-room Smyth Tribeca at 85 West Broadway, with rates as low as $119, and the Cooper Square Hotel in the East Village, with rates as low as $169. Established properties that have reduced prices include the Helmsley Park Lane, with rates as low $179/night, and the legendary Plaza Hotel, which has discounted rooms as much as 30 to 40 percent to as low as $562/night.
