Obviously, you could fly into New York City and spend time there before coming to saratoga. I have found quikbook.com an excellent bargain for NYC hotels. Or you could take Metro North to Tarrytown, NY, a charming city with resonable hotel rates, and take Metro North into the city daily. Hotels provide shuttles to the Metro.
If you chose to stay in Saratoga Springs with an overnight to NYC, you can drive to Tarrytown and take the Metro into the city. Again, quikbook.com is a good source for hotels. Tickets on Metro North for a 1 hour train into the city are $20.00 roundtrip.
Metro North also goes into the beautifully restored Grand Central Station on 42nd Street, an easy walk to the theater district or a $10 cab to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Guggenheim, and the Museum of Modern Art.
My husband and I are retired. I taught high school English and directed both the high school and junior high school musicals. My husband and I go to NYC at least once a month to see plays, musicals, and museums. We drive 2 hours south to the NYC local train, Metro North, and take the train into Grand Central Station ($10 each,) which is an easy walk to the Theater District, and/or take the subway or taxi to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim.
We also love the museums in Saratoga: The National Dance Museum, for instance, where we went for the induction of Tommy Tune. Yesterday, we drove to The Clark Museum in Williamstown, VT. the home of Williams College. The Clark has a wonderful Impressionist
My husband and I walk downtain daily for coffee and the New York Times, and to pick up things at the pharmacy and grocery store. Saturday and Wednesday we walk to the Farmer's Market for Hormone-Free and Antibiotic Free meats and organic vegetables.
We love movies and drive once a week to the Delaware Theater in Albany, N. Y.(45 minutes) where we can see foreign films. Saratoga also has a film forum where we see
the best of foreign and indepedent films Thursday through Sunday.
I love to garden. My yard is filled with roses, lilacs, clematis, tulips, ect.
