Take a cab unless you are truly destitute ... especially at that hour, the other options are a complete waste of time.

completely disagree. i think theyre still doing construction on the holland tunnel which makes the lincoln more crowded. could be wrong though... anyways i love the train. its so fast if its running right w your schedule. i take cabs at night- i cant lie. but times sq at that time is a mess anyhow. either way you'll be fine.

I came into Manhattan from Newark at midnight two nights ago ... zero traffic, zero wait at the tunnel.

The airtrain/shuttle are a waste of time.

I will not be destitute, however, I asked the hotel what they thought the price for a taxi would be, and they quoted me $75 from Newark! Now, I'm kind of thinking...$75 for a cab, or $12 for airtran. By your own suggestion...you would take the cab. So I guess I'll ask this...is it REALLY $75 for a cab from the airport?

Book a car service for less money than a cab ... www.dial7.com

When you have your bags, you call the car service and a car picks you up in 2-10 minutes. I do it all the time, most recently 2 nights ago.

At that hour and since you want to go out to the LES, the Airtrain is a colossal waste of time. Don't do it. Spend the extra money to get into the city quickly.

btw, should I have them wait at the hotel, and have them take me to LES too, or do I hail a cab from the hotel, once I'm there?

No reason to hold a cab, especially since coming from New Jersey it will be a Jersey cab and it can't pick up fares in Manhattan. (That's also why it costs so much--they have to go back to Jersey empty.)

You can easily hail a Manhattan cab once you've checked in and are ready to go.

If you are at the Crowne Plaza mentioned at 49th and Broadway, you can save some money and get a fast ride downtown on the subway. Walk one block to 49th and 7th and take the N, R, or W to 8th St or Prince St and walk east to reach the East Village and Lower East Side--$2 subway versus $10 ca ride.

No, don't hold your car service at the hotel ... check in and then jump in a cab to the LES. If you're hungry, start at Schiller's, a Keith McNally bar/restaurant.
