There's a reason most households here don't even have a single car.

I hope you're just using your car only to get here and not using it in NYC. Also IDK where you live, but have you looked into buses from your city that go to NYC? It could possibly save you a lot of money on the trip itself and also on the hotel.

There's Megabus, Boltbus, and various different Chinatown buses. There's also Greyhound but I personally kind of hate Greyhound and wouldn't reccomend them. But the good thing about Greyhound is that they have indoor terminals in many cities and I think they are also available in the most cities too.

Yes, your right. Traffic is a mess. You have to see it to believe it.

Not only the traffic, but forget about finding parking in Manhattan unless you spend $$$$ for a spot in a garage blocks away from your actual destination anytime you go anywhere ever. Even parking in the outer boroughs can be very difficult too.

NYC is most easily done by subway and on foot. It's not only cheaper, but much easier too.
