Have you even been to NYC Horus or are you just going off what movies and pop culture say about it?
NYC is a great place for Tourists. It is an expensive place to go, but you could spend a month there and not see everything.
That being said, if you're going to travel across the US I would rent a car. I work in the car rental industry and depending on when you go you can get a car for $500 a month tax included.
