Day trip to NYC

Hi all,

Planning a day trip to NYC on June 28th with the trip centered around going to the Yankee-Brewer game that night. We will be staying at a campground in Jersey City. The plan is to take the statue of Liberty ferry early in the morning and get off in Battery Park. We will then need to find transportation to our hotel for the night near LaGuardia. We will then need to find transportation to Yankee Stadium for the game and then back to the hotel for the night.

The next day we will be returning to Jersey city.

We would like any suggestions or advise on timing or transportation that anyone might have.

Thanks for the help in advance!

i must be misunderstanding--- why would you book a hotel near Laguardia if you are coming into Battery park from New Jersey--- to get out to Laguardia it probably is about a $25 to $30 cab ride each way. There is no good public transportation alternative. Please explain how you came up with this plan

This just works out better for some plans we have.

Is there not public transportation options?

Yankee Stadium is in the Bronx. What are you doing at Laguardia after the game or the following morning?

This is a REALLY bad plan. Which hotel near LaGuardia? And how long and/or how much money are you willing to spend on transportation?
