Just a reminder that St. Patrick's day in the USA is a different day to the UK. Not much happening last year in the city so we went to Whiteplains where the bars all dress up and there is a street parade. Was a great day even though it was p'ing it down.

Mind and wrap up warm would be good advice, bitter cold over there.

bump happy new year all

you're sending a mate off alone to NY in march!?
hostels are the cheapest but not the nicest of places and i'd not want to send a friend to one.

as her xmas pressie, her family are sending her, i am just trying to keep her as safe as possible, she doesnt fancy the hostel idea at all as lone woman. hoping to find a decent studenty type place. maybe thats hoping for miracles in NY.

depends how cheap is cheap. hotel being the cheapest really but the least desirable. doubt she'll get anything in manhattan either too cheap. any idea of price?

we havent got a clue what a fair price would be so any advice appreciated. is quite a sensible independant traveller but the hostels sound too rough. she doesnt even know where to avoid or to hunt, would prefer safer area than cheaper.

hope to find some links to discount hotel chains that can be trusted and arent brothels etc in reality.

try a search on alpharooms or octopus travel to see the types of places and prices range.
i've stayed at a hostel and a decent hotel and you kind of get what you pay for. i'm there next month again and staying at a hotel chain, in manhattan and that's a couple of hundred dollars a night for a twin room. you'll get cheaper maybe the further out you go and off the island.
