I'm not being flippant here, but if you're struggling to afford two nights in NYC then maybe a school in Manhattan isn't a good choice. Sure you could do loans and scholarships, but the cost of living is near tops in the country, if not the top. I have a lot of friends who went to NYU etc and they blew about 100K 10 years ago just on things. They're all successful now, so they recoup it, but you will bleed $$$ in NYC.
One other option is to look for hotels across the way in Northern NJ and take the train into the city. Check out around Metropark.
