My family and I (2 adults; 3 children under 11) are visiting New York City for a few days and are looking for alternatives to staying in Manhattan to save on hotel cost and parking our vehicle. We would be looking to take the subway in each morning, do planned activities, including a Yankees game one evening, and back to the hotel each night. Would this be recommended as an alternative to staying in the city, or should we just stay in the city? If a recommendation for outside of the city (i.e., New Jersey), any specific recommendations and suggestions for the commute in each day? Thank you!
