Not sure if you've booked anything accommodation wise yet but I'm staying in the aloft in brooklyn in may. A couple of mins walk from 4 or 5 subway lines and 5 mins into manhattan. My mate who lives in brooklyn reckons its a decent area etc loads of places to eat and get a drink round there. Was 106 a night I paid so not bad for nyc. Anyway not stayed there but seems to have decent reviews just a suggestion you could look at.

just had a quick look at Amtrak. Boston to New York, stay in New York for 3 days, then get the train to Washington comes in at 60. Decent.

Great deal that, puts our train prices into perspective.

It's a reasonable price - and about inline with what I'd expect to pay for similar distance train travel in the UK, IF you book in advance.

I looked up your journey on, substituting a mid-March Wednesday day of travel for both legs (to avoid potential premium weekend days and Easter, and within the window that the NRE website has pricing for in advance, so I could compare a UK journey) and did the same for a comparable UK journey, based on two journeys of around 200 miles each.

Boston - New York - Washington: $70, on Northeast Corridor services; $160 on Acela Express (Business)

London - York - Aberdeen: 48, standard class, 93.90 first class [*]

[*] the oddest thing about it is that despite having London in the itinerary which usually ramps the price right up, London-York was 19 (2nd) or 44 (1st) and York-Aberdeen was 29 (2nd) or 50 (1st)

I'd advise Pepsi Porch for Citi field. Great view and price.

Great price, but I didn't think the view was all that good, you couldn't see much of right field. There's much better views, imo, for not much more money in the stadium.
