What travelers to New York are saying

My first time there so it was nice to see a new place. Way better than San Francisco, and immediately upon finding the right subway paths I was able to walk up the stairs and enter the streets. It felt like a scene right out of the movies. I was joking around saying that it felt like I was in a Batman or Mobster movie and that there was going to be a big heist any moment. Definitely a great sensation to feel when first laying eyes on the city you'd be staying in for a few days. Lots of stuff to do and see. This is the city that never sleeps so even when all dies down in most other cities, Manhattan keeps on going. My suggestion is that if you're planning on doing any sight-seeing/touristy stuff or basically ANYTHING in general, ask for a map from the Information workers at the Subway station and take some time to see where everything goes. Some trains work on Express stops so they may skip stops you need, so be sure to figure out which ones those are (I never did) And when planning to see certain things, perhaps you get a CityPass like I did, plan accordingly and make sure you visit places that are near each other to maximize your time there so that you are not jumping on trains to go back and forth. I'd suggest seeing Central Park on the same day You'd go see the Museums that are down in that area. Perhaps even go do that the very first day so you can take in the beauty before you can take in the city. Plus after walking all day every day like I did, you wont be too tired to enjoy a walk in the park. Then you can do Time Square and the other stuff there is to do. If going to see the Status of Liberty, I HIGHLY suggest to immediately get inside the statue and climb to the top so that you're not waiting in a huge line to get to the pedestal and have your turn. You can actually wait to see the Wall Street Bull and the 9/11 Memorial on the last day of your stay because it doesn't take much time at all and they're fairly close to the hotel.

I lived in NY for about five years. I travel extensively for business. NY is certainly not among my favorite cities. It's a grimy place that costs an awful lot more than it's worth. If there's something in NY you want to see or do, it's certainly not the worst place to go, but NY itself is a pretty overrated destination, if you ask me.

Visit the Big Apple for Your Next Vacation

New York city guide

"The city that never sleeps," New York lives up to its nickname with exciting diversions 24/7. Whether you're ready to experience the thrill of a Broadway show or you want to step into the shoes of the many immigrants who began their lives in New York with a visit to Ellis Island, the Big Apple offers both opportunities and countless more.


The USA's largest city, New York is made up of five distinct boroughs: Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island. Each district has a unique personality and features all its own, but most visitors gravitate toward Manhattan: despite being just 12 miles long and three miles wide, this central district offers plenty of action for all age groups.

Exploring other areas couldn't be easier, either; just hop on board a bus or subway line. Overall, NYC has the advantage of being seriously walkable, but also boasts a reliable and well-organized public transit system. No matter where you stay when you're in town, there's a good chance you won't be too far from the action.

Things to see and do

Get a bird's-eye-view of NYC

The vertical power of this city is nearly overwhelming. Only like New York embodies the golden era of skyscrapers, and eight of them became the tallest in the world at different times over the course of the 20th century. Get a bird's-eye view of New York with an elevator ride up the Empire State Building, or try less-crowded but equally impressive Top of the Rock. This observation points extends over the 67th, 69th and 70th floors of the Rockefeller Center, from which you'll find fantastic views of Manhattan, Central Park and the Empire State Building.

Eat your way from Chinatown to Little Italy

When it comes to dining in New York, you really are spoilt for choice. Little Italy and Chinatown are packed with authentic eateries, while popular all-American diners like Stardust serve classics like Brooklyn Bagel, burgers, crispy wings and nachos. Finding the best bagel in New York could easily become the ultimate quest during your time in the city; take a look here to find some of the potential nominees.

If celebrity-spotting is at the top of your menu, check out Serendipity 3 on East 60th Street. Legendary for its "Frrrozen Hot Chocolate" dessert, this hotspot is always bustling and often sprinkled with some famous faces.

The stars of Broadway

Mesmerized by the bright lights of Broadway? Make sure to book theater tickets in advance and if you're not too picky about the production, you might even score seats near the stage at discount prices. Just ask the box office staff if the show has a daily ticket lottery system in place. From Wicked to Phantom of the Opera to Chicago, you could be watching one of the biggest shows on the planet when you're in town.

Where to stay


If you're itching to stay in the heart of the city, look no further than Manhattan's Uptown. Its northernmost clime is home to the Guggenheim Museum and the Met, Greenwich Village, Central Park and a revitalized, culture-drenched Harlem.


It goes without saying that NYC's most exclusive hotels are in Midtown: the New York Marriott Marquis (right on Times Square), The Peninsula New York (Fifth Avenue), Doubletree Guest Suites (Times Square) and the Carlyle (Madison Avenue). The famous lights of Broadway are only a cab or subway ride away, and affordable Midtown stays are also available: take a look at our Budget Big Apple guide for all the Manhattan tips you need.


A city within a city, Manhattan's lower precinct is made up of world-famous areas such as Chinatown, Little Italy, Wall Street and the resurrected World Trade Center. Soho's fashionistas, Tribeca's celebrities, and the East Village's culinary delights also make downtown truly cosmopolitan.


Close enough to the Manhattan buzz, but with a laid-back feel, Brooklyn is a borough where you can experience echoes of New York from days gone by, while enjoying the hippest crowds, trends and venues. Here you'll find hotels to suit a wide range of budgets and tastes. Just across the East River from Manhattan, the New York Marriott at Brooklyn Bridge is a gateway to both Manhattan and the heart of Brooklyn. Close to McCarren Park, the uber-cool King and Grove Williamsburg is the first full-service lifestyle hotel in Brooklyn. On Dean Street, The Missing Lantern offers the kind of affordable rooms that make Brooklyn a prime option for those traveling on a budget.
