I'm coming from Ottawa to Manhattan. I am driving but am obviously not going to use the car for the three days I'm there.
So I was thinking of parking near the Van Cortlandt Park station and then taking the subway from there. That part is straight forward enough, but I was just wondering if anyone knew about parking near there. Doing some basic research it seems that there is free street parking and also a parking garage near there. Will that work to leave the car for a couple days?
Otherwise I don't really know where to leave the car. Thanks.
When I travel from Rochester to Manhattan I drive to Poughkeepsie and then take the Metro North train from there to Grand Central. It costs $15 each way and takes about 1 1/2 hours. Parking at the station is free on weekends and $6-7 for other days. I think the trains leave about every hour.
