u2 plan for NYC @ 09:31 pm

films:
so as of right now i am going to take a road trip to NYC in november to see u2. i know how i posted awhile back about mabe selling the tix. but i just came back from NYC after a month long trip there. (i did play city of bliding lights in the air plane coming in) and after having the time of my life going to the nyfa for a month and living at the village and seeing all of nyc in a month from the park all the way to brooklyn. i am going to take a trip by bus to NYC from NC.
I am going to come into the city that morning. have fun during the day. go see the show at 8 (have no clue what time it gets out at) then wait around eat and catch the bus at 130am back to NC. I hope i can make it from MSG to the bus place.

So no hotel room or anything. a bus ticket round trip will cost me $120 in november

any ideas

If there's no one you can crash with?

Hostel. Cheap, affordable, and you'll be thankful for the bed and shower.

The first commenter is right - you'll want the shower and the bed. Plus it seems a shame to go all the way to NYC and not spend any time there. I'm thinking you might have friends there you could stay with for just a night or two since you mention you just spent a month? But if not, the YMCA does private rooms for a good price. The ones in Manhattan go for about $80 a night - http://www.ymcanyc.org/sub.php?p=services&sp=guest/guestmanhattan

If you're on a tight budget, try the Greenpoint YMCA in Brooklyn. I stayed there for 4 nights on my own and it was fine. A bit of a hassle travelling out to Brooklyn but it was on the subway so not a problem. They are about $50 a night for a private room. The offical link to them is here - http://www.ymcanyc.org/sub.php?p=services&sp=guest/guestbrookqueens#Greenpoint - can also book through this site - http://www.hostelworld.com/hosteldetails.php/GreenpointYMCA-NewYork-4561 - single private room for $47 including all fees. That price includes a lovely breakfast at the cafe up the road and access to the Y facilities.

Also, have you looked into www.statravel.com? If you're a student or under 26 they do cheaper airfares.

Good luck!

one more thing - see the bus ride is a 15 hour ride so it would take me all night and then all day to get home

I have an idea

Bag your trip and sell your tickets to me! :D

Actually, the bed and shower are not a bad idea, but you will be so pumped from the concert that you won't really be in the mood for sleeping right then and there anyway...
