My family of 4 (Husband, myself, 4yo and 1yo) are planning our first visit to NYC. We will be in NY for about a week in June.
Is anyone able to recommend a good area of New York to stay in, or more specifically a good hotel where we can stay (clean, safe, but budget friendly). We are happy to not be in the heart of the city but don't want to be so far out that we are travelling hours to get around each day.
We would like to visit some family friendly attractions like the Museum of Natural History, Central Park and Coney Island and plan to use the subway primarily to avoid lugging child car seats around. Any other suggested attractions are welcome.
We have allocated a budget of $2000 for the week (including our meals, transport and accommodation).
Thanks for your help!
