First of all, wishing New Yorkers a speedy recovery during this time!
I have a couple of questions regarding transporation:
1) We will be arriving 11/23 thru 11/26 and staying near W. 46th and 7th Ave. There will be 5 of us (3 adults; 2 teenagers), for getting around is it cheaper to get a Metrocard (unlimited) or just get taxis for our destinations? We plan on doing all the tourist stuff...Ellis Island, Central Park, Empire State Bldg, Rockfeller Center.
2) We are flying into JFK; I read since there are at least 5 of us for price to take a taxi...but I also read that it's faster and easier to take Airtran and then subway to our hotel. Thoughts?
Thanks for all input!
