This year will be my 1st trip down to the Bi East Tournament. I was wondering if anyone had advice on what hotel I should stay at. I do want to stay in Manhattan as close to MSG as I can. I don't want to break the bank. I've been looking at primarily 4 star hotels. I'm a little Leary about 3 star hotels in Manhattan. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I will also be buying tickets on the street. Is there any specific area I should be walking around in to find cheaper tickets?
