What would be the best budget friendly option for a family (2 adults, 2 teens) to spend a few days in NYC? Our foreign exchange student and her family are coming to visit us this summer. Since they are flying into JFK they wanted to spend a few days seeing sights in NYC. I know this trip is hugely expensive for their budget, so something relatively affordable would be great. It will need to be somewhat easy to get around though since the parents don't really speak English. I have no experience at all with public transportation or accomodations in NYC, so any options/opinions would be appreciated.
