I’m going for my first time, and have no idea of where I want to be when I’m there. I want to be close to most things if possible. My second question: Is it expensive to go from Hoboken to Times Square via Taxi? Answer: That really depends on the kind of trip you plan, but here are a few ideas that I have gathered on this subject. Based on your question, I think you may want to stay in mid-town, where you can get on the subway and head in either direction in about 15 or 20 minutes. Most of the main subway stations also switch in midtown, so you can transfer. The answer to Question 2, the Hoboken to Times Square is: You can spend as little as a dollar or as much as $30 or more for the same trip. To walk would take you more than 40 minutes.
