I and my two of friends wıll be visiting Manhattan at the end of February and we are looking for a one bedroom suite including a sofa bed option with reasonable prices. The idea we have also to stay out of Manhattan, maybe in Long Island City (or any other suggested place with easy access to subway)? Any suggestions on budget stays in LIC? Also I have heard from a friend that LIC area is not a safe area to stay, is it true? The max price range we can afford is 125-175$.
