I am looking at the NY area for next summer. The problem is it seems that the Manhattan Club is impossible to get in to, and everything else looks to be a long way from Manhattan (not from the area, so I don't know anything about it). I guess I am looking for resort locations that would still allow us to go into the city at least two to three times in a week's stay. Atlantic City? Niagara Falls area? Canada? Any advice would be appreciated. I have two kids, 9 and 14 if that matters. Also, would like a really nice, safe, resort. Gold would be nice. Thanks in advance for the suggestions.
