Getting from NJ to NYC

Jump to last reply

I am staying in New Bergen, NJ and will traveling to NYC for a day or two to see just a few sights while in NJ. Here's my question - what is the BEST way to get from New Bergen or Hoboken to NYC? There is a shuttle from my hotel (Comfort Suites New Bergen) round trip for $12.00 taking me to Times Square and returning me that night. I want to leave my car in the hotel parking lot....supposedly buses are a couple of blocks away.

Other question is....my daughter wants to "SEE" the Statue of Liberty....not go onto the island, but get a few pictures, even from a distance....any ideas on a good way to do that? These are my limited sights that we want to see (not much time)....any suggestion on order of visits to make it easier?
Statue of LIberty
Empire State Building (not go up- just look from outside)
Location of WTC tragedy
Times Square
FAO Schwartz
Thanks for any help you could give us!!!!
