I'm spending two nights in New York in a week or so's time on my way to Guatemala. I've never been before and don't know much about it to be honest. I fly out from LaGuardia early, so I'd like to stay somewhere where it's easy to get to the airport from (I'm thinking Manhattan). Does anyone know of any hostels/cheap hotels around there?
Also, where do I go? What do I do? Suggestions are welcome, particularly for cheap, nice bars/restaurants, venues, art museums or anything else really.
