Hello All I am clueless!!!
The teenagers I work with have been asking me for a couple years to plan a trip to NYC. I have been very apprehensive about it, as I have only been to NYC once for a couple of hours to see the Statue of Liberty and to get lost in Central Park. So I don't know where to start. We are on a shoe string budget, so I am thinking about staying in New Jersey, will hotels accept youth groups? We are looking at coming this summer (thinking the end of June/first of July), hoping prices will be a little cheaper in the summer. Not to worried about the heat, since we live in Eastern NC, and are used to 100+ degree days and 100% humidity. I worry about traffic and crowds as that will be around Independence Day. Is this a decent time of year to come? Is touring NYC with a group of teens a good idea? As I said we are from Eastern, NC and the largest city most of these kids have ever been to is Raleigh, NC, so they can be very naive. Any help you can provide would be appreciated.
