Yeah, I understand. I always wonder what New York is like to those who don't live here. It really must suck because of that logistics factor. I couldn't imagine having to come here without a place to stay and figure out doing a 3 night run or something. I hope you have a friend or something you can crash with! NYC really is a nice place to live, but from the view the tourists and visitors get of it, it would make me want to puke too.
It's tough for me now that I have people I have to bring along for the ride (family), not so much financially but physically.
And yeah, dragging my whole family through NYC hopping trains and catching cabs is daunting to say the least.
I'm still young, so a solo trip to NYC for furthur is in my future, but I can't do every run
