I am coming out to New York in a couple of weeks, and I was wondering if there was somewhere I could park my car outside the city and just take some transportation in. Does anyone know of a place where that would be possible. I am coming from Ohio if that helps.
You can park in the city for about $25/day. The NJTransit ticket will cost you about $5 each way and will take about half an hour if you park in Jersey. You won't really save that much money. Now if you are staying for a week or more, are you going to want to USE your car during the week or just stash it somewhere?

Thanks guys, here is what I am planning on doing... I am going to drive into Jersey and take a train into the city. I looked on the NJTransit website, and they recommend getting on the train in Iselin, NJ and taking the train to New York.
Where are you driving from? I.e. where do you live?

i would recommend parking it in manhattan. there are lots in east midtown for $25/day. in the previous thread no one seemed to mention that leaving your car in jersey is actually a much sketchier idea than leaving it in a lot in manhattan. (and that driving in jersey is much more of a headache than driving in manhattan). I don't know where you are coming from , but i drive in from Boston all the time and from the north it is much easier to drive into the city than it is to drive over to jersey.
There is no Amtrak here in Columbus, I would have to drive to Cleveland and pick it up there, and then I checked the schedule and the day we are coming back it said there was not a train. I wish it were that easy.
