My fiance and I will be taking a road trip through the Northeast for our Honeymoon. We will be driving and realize it may be difficult to travel in NYC if you don't know your way around. Would anyone suggest staying in a suburb and taking the subway into the city or staying at a hotel with good parking?

Definitely a hotel in the city with parking if you can afford it. You can park your car and then not use it again until you have to leave. Call the front desk and ask the best directions into and out of the city and you'll be fine (minus the traffic, course). Bring money for tolls, stick to the major avenues when possible, and don't be afraid to honk. :)

If you really want to avoid staying in the city, there are quaint and picturesque (if a trifle boring) towns along the Metro North Commuter rail (http://www.mta.info/) in the Hudson River Valley or in Connecticut's Fairfield County. Places like Katonah, NY or Greenwich, CT (pronounced gren-itch) are about an hour train ride into the city a located close to major highways (84 and 95, respectively).

I would suggest parking your car at your hotel and just staying in the city. Being in the center of the action is so much better than on the fringe (unless you opt to stay in, say, Brooklyn's Park Slope, where there's a good vibe with restaurants). It may be a bit expensive to park the car, but once you're there you can park and forget it, and then enjoy exploring the city on your own time, rather than worrying about getting back to the suburbs.
