First Visit to NY and USA

by friendlyfifer

Hi
Will be spending 3 nights in NY at the end of a cruise in May. Which area of the city should I find a hotel in? We love food, theatre, shopping as well as visiting the tourist sites. Any tips on which hotels to try would be helpful. Have reasonable budget but it doesn't look as if hotel rooms are cheap in NY. Also which clothes shops are good for men in their fifties? Still try to dress with some style! Thanks

Manhatten would be ideal for accommodation regarding seeing the tourist sights of NY.

I recommend the Hotel Metro- which is right next to Empire State Building. Its a perfect location, with a subway nearby. Hotel has excellent service, nice rooms and good food. (there is a review on my New York page. Click on my name for my homepage, where there is a New York link, and scroll down page for accommodation tip). The rates are reasonable for Manhatten.
Shops- just about everywhere - stroll around and take your pick! NY is fantastic just for walking around too.

Good location would be around Times Square and Broadway which is where you will find all the theatres and a lot of restaurants. Also easy to get on the subway to other attractions. Try booking.com for best rates, and with a lot of them you don't have to pay until you actually check in. Have fun!

Any location near the subway is good as it is very cheap and easy to move around. We had a week down on 23rd street and walked to Times Square in 20 minutes. Walking lets you see much.

For hotels etc check out Tripadvisor.com Also check pages of VT members who have replied.

If you are really interested in theater and you don't mind seeing whatever is available, you can get half price tickets at tkts at Times Square day-of. However, if you would like to see a particular show, check out theatermania.com. I just bought tickets to The Addams Family (I'm a big Nathan Lane fan) for about 40% off the regular price for great orchestra seats through this site.

Also, besides the regular museums and tourist sites like the MOMA, the Met, the Natural History Museum, the Statue of Liberty, the Top of the Rock, or the Empire State Building, you may want to take a trip off the beaten track and tour City Hall (one of the oldest in the country), Gracie Mansion, or sit in the audience at one of the numerous shows that tape in NYC (e.g., The View, Regis and Kelly, Letterman, Nate Berkus, Martha Stewart, etc.). If you want any other more detailed reviews of things to do, you can check my blog (http://uniquetonyc.blogspot.com/). Enjoy your trip!

Travel Tips for New York City

Ticket to America's Hippest Holiday Destination

by samwalker16

Carrie observed in the ‘Sex and the City’ that “New York is all about sex. People getting it, People trying to get it, People who can't get it. No wonder the city never sleeps”. Undoubtedly, many would nod in unison but the above captures only one aspect of the city.

Exciting, Electrifying, Bizarre…New York never fails to mesmerize its visitors. Being an intriguing blend of people and cultures the city enjoys an incredible appeal amongst visitors streaming in from all corners of the world.

An air ticket to New York would unravel the enduring charm of this iconic city that is truly the gateway to America. Synonymous with New York, the Statue of Liberty stands as a shining example of America’s freedom struggle and it welcomes its visitors who come to explore the city. Take time out to visit the historic Lincoln Centre and the many shops of the majestic Rockefeller Plaza.

A bike ride through the Central Park is sure to be an unforgettable experience. Hugely popular amongst tourists ‘Central Park Bike Tours’ are sure to provide the excitement you and your family crave for. Tackle the huge waves on its sparkling coastline that are just ideal for snorkelling and scuba-diving. With its diverse landscapes the city is a haven for adventure enthusiasts who can indulge in mountaineering, biking and other adventure sports.

New York’s cosmopolitan character ensures that the city is a treasure trove of cuisines from all across the world. Serving a vast smorgasbord of dishes delis, fast food joints, fine-dining restaurants in the city offer a feast for the senses. Adding to the experience is ice-cream parlours, tea, coffee joints that are just right for intimate conversations or to unwind after work. Sail into New York next summer and you are sure to remain hooked to this city for long.

Crossing the Roads of New York!

by J.I.M

In New York City I found that crossing the roads was quite strange, because often, when the sign said "Walk" there would still be cars going straight across, almost hitting me! You can't quite see it in the photo, but the sign says "walk" and yet that car is pulling straight out into the road.
I don't know, maybe I'm too used to stricter British roads, but it's something to watch out for if you visit New York!

Definently you must go to a broadway play We went to a broadway play and we pulled up there in a limo. I had so much fun there. We were originally supposed to get to the play by a cab but a limo driver heard us talking and asked to take us there.

New York City, Statue of Liberty, Subway, Broadway The Country... most of the State of New York is all country. Beautiful mountains, lakes and valleys.

Soho

by kenadams

This district SOuth of HOuston Street (hence the name: SOHO) is a former sweatshop area that was nearly abandoned when industries moved away from New York city (taxes and labor laws!) between the 60s and 70s. Groups of artists started to move in and create their own lofts and workspaces. By the end of the 1980s, Soho had become the artistic capital of New York city.
Some of the greatest shopping in New York can be done here, especially since many big name boutiques have joined the authentic indigenous stores.
West Broadway is more or less Soho's main street: it is absolutely charming, especially on weekends.
