Hi my family is coming for vacation to NYC from 1st - 5th Apr, 2013. We want to see times square, empire state building, Manhattan skyline cruse as well as Statue of Liberty cruise .
The hotels in time square are expensive. We need 2 rooms. My question are:
1. can i stay away from Time square and commute every morning to times square, as all activities start their i have been told.
2. Which areas are safe and how much it would cost to and fro to times square.
3. Will getting cab be easy in that area.
I appreciate all your help.
