Really great forum, helpful people, vast amount of information.
I'm from Europe and fairly new in the US. I plan to drive (not rental) from Ann Arbor, Michigan to New York next month with my brother who will come to visit me. We plan to stay in a hostel for 4 days and return to Michigan.
I have a couple of concerns. I see that it's about 620 miles. I guessing it should be something like a 10 hour drive. I plan to make only one stop for food and catnap. (no sightseeing). Is this a fair estimation?
The other, more important, thing that concerns me is the parking problem. The place where we'll stay don't have parking space. I've been to Manhattan a few years ago for a week (by plane) so I know that we won't need the car during our stay at all. But I don't know where I can find a cheap/free parking space for the car during that 4 days. (if there's any such thing in or around New York!) It does not have to be in Manhattan, which I'm sure would be next to impossible, so could be somewhere in NJ or a close location etc. I don't know what to do with the car.
I'd really appreciate your suggestions/comments.
