New York in October!

by stayc0712

I am going to New York in October (traveling alone) , staying in Manhattan in a hostel and I have no idea where to begin so I don't miss a thing. I heard the about the outlet malls, but I would rather go and see more sightseeing then anything else.. I posted a few months back going about traveling alone and was always worried about the little things really .. but a small business trip helped , going to my cousin's wedding i was able to take in some of the activities that I wanted to do and had no trouble doing them and manage to get to my flights on time etc. It was a great confidence builder thats for sure.

Don't try to see everything. The famous attractions are wonderful, but you'll get more out of soaking up the atmosphere, just exploring the neighborhoods on your own.

Here's a link to a great trip report by a young man traveling alone. (Well, he came to NY with a friend, but most of his exploring was solo.)

It's a great read!

There wasn't a question. I just ddon't knwo where to start really .

First thing to do is find accommodation. Do you have your dates yet? Do you have a lodging budget? It sounds like you are on a restricted budget, and October is very expensive in NYC. I would recommend you stay at the big Hostelling International hostel on the upper west side. It's a good way to meet other solo travelers if you want to get together for meals or sightseeing. And it's legitimate. There seem to be quite a few reports of illegal hostels being shut down lately, so be careful.

for a basic introduction to what new york city has to offer, suggest what many do whenever visiting a new city. get a subway map and a city map and download them so you get an idea of where things are located. then get a basic guide book like a fodor or frommer to see what the major attractions are that interest you. nothing fancy, just basic homework - you have six weeks minimum. october is a great time to visit.

I know the planning can get overwhelming sometimes especially when the city is as big as NYC. I suggest that you read VT members NYC pages and tips as well as other travel sites such as http://www.iloveny.com/, and start making a list of places you want to go, and things you want to do while you are in a city. While there are obvious tourist attractions such as the statue of Liberty, Central Park, Times Square, etc., it's really up to what your interests are. Once you have a better idea of what you want to do, come back here and ask more specific questions. I'm sure many VTers would respond to that. :)

No need to stress it. How long will you be here for? Oct is a great month to visit as you won't deal with the brutal heat that we had this summer and it won't be winter yet.
If you are spending more than a week, here is my advice: plan what you would like to do....but on the FIRST day, just get out and walk around and get your bearings. That is what I usually do when I am visiting a place for the first time. Also, get a Metrocard/subway map: http://mta.info/, and jump on the subway so that you also understand how it works. Grab some food off of the street or in a deli. Then from day 2 on, see/visit the places that are on your list.

Travel Tips for New York City

New York City Guides

by tomhoward

VISIT THIS PAGE THRO MY NY TRAVEL PAGE FOR THE HYPERLINKS TO SHOW

Like a poor mans CitySearch, AOL City Guide has the added plus of searchable event/date functions.

Ask A New Yorker.Com gives a Q&A forum similar to VirtualTourist. Worth a browse just for questions you never thought of asking.

Limited info for most places on Guardian Travel, but NYC is one of the best. The Independent is worth a peek as well.

The coolest 'scene' bars, clubs and restaurants can be found in Hip Guide, and it's pretty accurate.

Concierge.Com is an upmarket travel magazine with limited (but select) reviews, while Village Voice covers upcoming events in more of a news style format.

Well written, with regular articles on food & entertainment, the Manhattan Users Guide is similar to the Guardian site, only better as it's written by locals. Likewise, NYC Visit is a regular NYC tourist site.

For current and upcoming events, you'll struggle to beat Whats On When. The old favourites Fodors, Frommers, CitySearch, Time Out, Yahoo Travel, & NY Times shouldn't be a surprise to anyone.

If you need to find anywhere quickly Map Quest or Hot Maps will usually sort it out.

Does exactly what it says on the tin at Destination Coupons.Com.

Around this town ...

by Docu2001

There are millions of streets in thousands of cities and each tells us something about the people who lived there and who live there still. But there is something special about the places we get to know very well, particularly if that place is the island of Manhattan ...
As a traveler you may decide to take a turn onto an unknown street ... a street a tourist might simply glance at in passing as he pressses his nose into the guide book for the next official point of interest.
Take time while in Manhattan .. particulary in the Villages - east & west - to wander. There is great life in the second-hand bookstores and coffee shops tucked between the narrow apartment buildings and townhouses.

This was the scene in...

by zizquark

This was the scene in Washington Square park . So many flowers, so many candles, so many lives. There were sheets surrounding the arch at the park where everyone could write down their thoughts and feelings. There were so many heartwrenching letters and stories all people should have witnessed it to feel the real impact. Seeing something on TV or hearing about how tragic it was and how many lives were lost cannot be fully felt sometimes until you can identify with the people and emotions of those suffering,

There are so many more to see & do! Enjoy New York! Strolling along Times Square at night and being lost in the sea of humanity

"The Gates" - a once-in-a-lifetime event

by jglsongs

During February 2005, NY was overcome with Christo (and Jeanne-Claude) fever. The world-renowned artists best known for wrapping things opened their NY project, "The Gates," along the walkways and entrances of Central Park.

It is an amazing project (at this writing, still 24 hours left of the exhibition, so if you haven't seen it yet, today's the day) that has brought New Yorkers together with the world community. A perfect gift to New York from Christo and Jeanne-Claude.
