We are two retired couples planning to visit NYC for 5 days in May next year. We would like to take in a show, and view some of the sights. Since we have never been there before, we would appreciate a recommendation as to which area to stay in that will not involve to much travel to get to the highlights. We are considering Brooklyn because hotels seem to be a little more affordable there, but will it mean a lot time traveling to and fro? Any suggestions would be much appreciated. We were looking at renting an apartment, but have now learned that this is not legal.
We appreciate any and all help you can offer.
