Yearning for a big apple for cheap? Scratch that. Yearning for Big Apple for cheap?

Can do.

Check into cheap fares on bus services such as Bolt Bus (www.boltbus.com), where one-way fares start at $1. The buses, which are equipped with Wi-Fi and plug-ins for iPods and other electronic equipment, take about four hours to reach New York City from the District.

“Great,” you might think, “but once I get there, hotels will cost an arm and a leg.”

True, some hotels, such as the Ritz, can’t be described as economical, but there are plenty of options for $100 a night or less. Even in Manhattan.

A quick search at www. hotels.com, for example, yielded 82 hotels with room offers for less than $100.


You’re on your own. Suffice it to say that a city nicknamed after a piece of fruit with millions of residents and tourists to feed has more food offerings at prices high and low than just about any city in the world.
