Thanks in advance for any/all help on this issue. My oldest DD followed through with her obligations and can now visit her best friend in Victor, NY. (She came to visit us 2 years ago, so now DD gets to go see her). I won't let her fly all the way from Nebraska to/from New York on her own, so my younger DD and I will accompany her to Rochester, then we'll be on our own while she stays with her friend and her family for 5-7 days.
We thought we'd like to take in Niagara Falls one day and then go to NYC for the remainder of our days. I'd guess we'd just rent a car in Rochester to go to/from the falls but my problem is: How do we get from Rochester to/from NYC? Being a midwesterner, I wouldn't be equiped to tackle renting a car and driving there..... :-) We've flown to DC and Chicago in the past 2 years and have had tremendous experiences using subways/trains/busses for getting around once we're in the "big cities", so I'm sure we'll do fine with the same once in NYC. But how best to get there in the first place? Thanks!!!! (and any further advice is, as always, very much appreciated!)
