Hi, we are planning a trip to New York starting 16 Sept 2011 for a fortnight. Ideally, we would like to have cooking facilities and private bathroom. We are cautious about booking apartments after reading about many scams although this was our original intention. Our budget would be £100 - £150 per night.
We would also like to travel to another area, by public transport within say 2/3 hours of NYC (we can be flexible with distance) and have no idea where might be a nice place to stay. We like to walk, love the sea and would prefer to selfcater. A small quiet unspoilt scenic town would be perfect -can anyone recommend anything like this. We did not want to hire a car and may chose to stay 1 week thus having a week in each destination.
We would appreciate any ideas?
