Alternative NYC boroughs to base to visit Manhattan

Jump to last reply

Good morning everybody,

I am planning a trip to Manhattan next Summer and I am having trouble finding lodging for two persons for no more than $ 150 with all taxes, and paying with credit card.

I've been to Manhattan several times before, so I know my way around, that's why I've also been considering staying in another borough, specifically Harlem or Brooklyn. This will also give me a chance to see more of NYC than just Manhattan.

However, how much of a good idea is this? Would the taking of the subway to and from Manhattan prove to be a nuisance rather than an advantage? I'm not interested in doing nightlife in Manhattan (or anywhere else for that matter); I just want a quiet and clean place to sleep after sightseeing/strolling/shopping in Manhattan.

Thank you very much for your time and input,

Orlando Fato
