My wife and I are cruising to Bermuda on the 20th of October 2013 and are flying in to EWR. We are coming in on Friday the 18th so we can visit NY City. We might take in a play and would like to stay near Times Square. Just wondering if there is a fairly cheap and easy way to get from EWR to Times Square or does anyone know of a good hotel in Newark that we would still be able to get to NY City at a reasonable cost. We heard the taxis are EXPENSIVE Like $50 one way. Any help or suggestions would be very much appreciated. We have never been to NY so we are very excited about that. We live 80 miles West of Chicago and go there quite a bit but we know NY is amazing.
Thanks for any help.
