Hi everyone- my husband and I are adding on two days in NYC to a company sponsored trip to Philadelphia that he needs to go to at the end of Sept. We are from California and have never been to the Big Apple. We are going to travel in on a Saturday evening, wake up on Sunday and take a big bus and boat tour around NYC to see all the highlights. We are also wanting to make sure we get to Coney Island and Yankee Stadium, which are, of course, two different directions from our hotel in Jersey. How would you get to those two locations if you were us? Could we do it in one day? Is Yankee Stadium in a bad area, or is it safe to travel there? Hubby just wants to see the stadium, not go for a game or anything. Thanks for your help!!

To get to Coney Island you can take the subway - D, F, Q or N lines all go there. If you come to Manhattan by bus from NJ, you can take the N or Q subway lines from the 42th St/Times Square which are connected to the Port Authority Bus Terminal by underground tunnel.

If you are near E. 42nd Street than you should try and visit Grand Central Station. A building of both historical and cinematic roots but also for its architectural beauty. Or very near to that is Bryant Park- if you need a short breather.

You can also take the train to Yankee Stadium from Grand Central. You would take a Hudson Line Metro-North train to 153rd Street-Yankee Stadium station. You can also take a tour of the stadium, if your trip is before the 24th of September.

Thanks for your help guys - I was kind of planning on at least seeing Grand Central Station - good to know we can take a train out of it. We will be in NYC Sept 25-28, so no tours of Yankee Stadium, it's okay! Thanks again for the tips

Hmm don't venture too far from YS because it is in a low income, high crime area.
