We are visiting NYC for the first time the first weekend of November. Three of the four of us are Volunteer Firefighters. We would like to visit the fire departments (of course), Statue of Liberty, Time Square and other sights. What is the best form of transportation and where should we start? Time and money will be limited. Thanks for any help you may provide.

The subway is the cheapest form of transportation. Cabs are very expensive. Walking around Time Square is the easiest way to see it and the stores, theaters, etc...and how you get there will depend on where you are staying. More than about 10 blocks (north-south) and I'd take the subway if saving time is a priority....Where you should start will depend on where you are staying and what your priorities are. I'd do the Statue of Liberty first, but that's me. Ground Zero is a moving experience cool and you can walk from there to the boat to the Statue.

If your budget's tight, then I'd say walk or take the subway. NYC is such a fun city to walk anyway, so that'd be my preferred mode of transport.

Walking is Good because there will be lots of diverse shops you can walk into and browse and also there is really so much to see and that you could even accidentally bump into. The subway can be confusing but I highly recommend you go to www.hopstop.com. This website has SAVED my butt several times when it comes to finding where I'm going and which subway to take. There are several different subway lines you could take and the subway maps are kind of confusing, but this website makes it real simple. It works like mapquest.com where you plug in the adress you are starting at and where you would like to end up and it gives you options for the quickest route or cheapest route, etc. Taxis are also pretty affordable if your traveling with a Group. By central park they also have bike rentals so if you want to travel around the park that is a nice way to ride around.
