Whats the general price I should expect to spend on a trip to New York?

I would like to visit New York this coming March, but I havent traveled much. Id like to stay for 1-2 weeks, but I really dont plan on buying much. Just essencials, perhaps a few little fun things. I dont really plan on any expensive attractions either. Mostly just sight-seeing. And I dont need expensive food. Just essencials. And Im not horribly picky. So with everything (hotel, estimate on food and taxi services, etc...) what could I expect to spend?

I know nothing about hotel costs but you can live cheaply while you are here. Honestly, there is rarely a reason to take a cab. It's a big waste of money. You can buy a 7-day MetroCard subway pass for $24 (unlimited rides), the cost of 1 or 2 cab rides... More

depends on what hotel you stay in. NYC hotels are not cheap. You are looking at $200 a night easy. So 2 weeks thats going to be between $2000 and probably $4500 depending on where you stay. If you get waiter and waitress service for dinner expect $30 per person at least... More

Depends if your there 1 or 2 weeks but I would say 3 to 4 thousand easy, you're on a trip you don't want to have to pinch pennies the whole time. Have fun splurge a little.

Your main expense is the hotel service. Stay in Chinatown it's cheapest. Also stay away from tourist-y places to eat more so the less will it be expensive (25$ for so-so salad).
