I have visited NYC nine times and am going for ten. It is a totally the best city in the western hemisphere. I love the hustle and bustle -- so many things to see. They have a great subway system but it takes time to figure it out. I have been to the Letterman Show (won tickets). It's a great city -- go to New York. You'll love it -- I guarantee it.
It is the best city in the world and I dream of it everyday. Get the Manhattan map and ride the subways. Everybody is so friendly and gives you directions on the streets -- from the cops to the wealthy business people. There is always something to do and lots of things to do for free like the sightseeing. Get a weekly pass for $27 at LGA when you arrive or at Penn Station. Call the MTA and get directions to wherever you want to go. Ride the free ferry to Staten Island -- a free, close look at Statue of Liberty. Go to the pier in the Greenwich Village. Go eat lunch in Central Park. Take a little extra money and shop at the big street fair on Saturdays in the same area in the summer and spring. It moves to a different location each weekend so ask where it is. I l love New York! Can't you tell?
When you are in New York City, always have quarters so you can ride the buses easily.
New York is my city, I love it. There are a lot of nice people!
I captured the most amazing pictures from the NY Waterway Tour -- take the ninety-minute water tour. It's the best! NY Waterway was awesome!
Dont get too drunk, because the subway system can get confusing if you're not familiar with it.
I went on a great tour. We went to three clubs in Greenwich Village and heard three live bands.
It's the best city in the world!
All I can say is wow! To experience the state of mind that is New York is incredible.
New York for me is the best city in the world. I would recommend it to everybody.
It's hot in the summertime. The subway is stinky and sweaty.
Take a good pair of walking shoes, and even in May you will want to bring a jacket!
New York is the city that never sleeps and is one of the most exciting cities in the world. It consists of five boroughs: Manhattan, The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island.
The most central and convenient location for hostels in New York is Manhattan where most of the major attractions are located. Be aware that hostels might be quite expensive here; if you are on a budget it might be reasonable to look for a hostel in one of the other boroughs.
Manhattan itself offers a wide variety of attractions and neighborhoods, including the hip district of Greenwich Village, the posh Upper East Side, the eclectic Chinatown, or the impressive Financial District. You can pretty much stay at any New York hostel since getting around is not a problem thanks to the comprehensive subway and public transport system. Just make sure that you always check the final destination when taking the metro and be aware that some of the trains are express trains and might not stop at your destination.
When booking your NYC hostel consider spending at least a few days or longer in this amazing city; go shopping and dining, experience a Broadway show, enjoy a sunny day in Central Park, and check out some of the impressive art museums.
