Do not order just a beer in the pub, you might get some mild draft beer or bad Bud.
Check out what they have on the tap as they call it here, they have many regional breweries as well as in some pubs even micro breweries that make very good quality beers.

Most people recommend this place as a must see. Quite frankly it does have some cool points to it; like the dinosaur bones and there is a wall of life that features some qiant jelly fish and other gross creatures, but over all I found this place to be a waste of time. I am all for museums but nothing in this place is real. It`s all stuffed animals. My husband wanted to see the dum dum want gum gum statue from the movie: Night at the Museum and that isn`t even real. It`s foam or some replica. To me this was a waste of a day that could`ve been spent doing something else.
Unique Suggestions: go see the dinosaurs, then leave.

So you have just flown into JFK. from either europe, Canada, Mexico wherever. You want to get to your hotel, home, hostel fast. So what do some people do
BLOW $50 ON A CAB to manhattan
Or from Manhattan to JFK
Its not worth it
Unique Suggestions: I just hope your a rich person that can afford to blow $50 on a taxi
Fun Alternatives: Simply go up stairs & board the airtrain.
The airtrain goes throught the terminals before heading out to Jamacia queens where you pay the guy $5 for an exit card
You can then catch a long island train from there or Get a Subway J Z E A Train to manhattan.
Its very slow on weekends so if you have to be at JFK by a certain time. Leave home early

Food traps to avoid: Street meat - Toronto Street meat is way better. The hot dogs are nothing but skinny red hots for $3/dog. Not worth it.
Street Pretzels: they are dusty and chalky and there weren't no dipping sauce.
Large eateries= mucho denaros.
Unique Suggestions: Our first night in New York we went to the only place we could think of right off the bat: Times Square. It is loaded with large restaurant chains like Bubba Gumps - which is cool since we don't have one here in Ontario. So we ate there and discovered that it was not worth the amount we paid. The food was good and it was a nice treat for one meal. But after that we would've blown are budget on meals alone had we stuck with sit down restaurants.
Fun Alternatives: Everyone says that New York is expensive but when it comes to food there are so many options that you don't need to stick to large brand name restaurants. The diners in New York are fantastic and cheap!! I recommend the Galaxy Diner ( I don't remember the addy but is keeps winning local food awards so it is well known and at the lower end of the city), as well as the Chelsea Food market (75th ninth ave btwn 15th & 16th) for all sorts of gourmet food, coffee and desserts.
Try the small deli's they are everywhere and ohhh soo tasty! There are so many cute tucked away nooks that offer fantastic food for reasonable prices that it would take you years to get sick of dining out in the city and it won't break your bank.

Why come all the way to NYC to eat in McDonalds, TGI Fridays, Starbucks (which i hate at home anyway!) or any other chain you can get in most parts of the world.
There are so many amazing places to eat in the city so please try something different ask the locals on here for suggestions!
Fun Alternatives: lots of other great restaurants/coffee shops that offer good value for money food!

Ok so I am not a local but I am a tourist....I would stay away from these like the plague. The poor horses look exhausted and in my opinion worked to the bone (well they were thankgiving day) They are very expensive and you don;t get to see a great deal of the park......and who wants a blanket on their knee a million other people have!
Fun Alternatives: OK so if you want to go to the park and have a tour use one of the guys on the bikes - a ton cheaper and they actually get paid to do it (what do the horses get out of it in all honesty?)
They will stop if you want to take a picture. Great experience.

I cannot believe I parted with $11 for a gin and tonic in the bar of the Radisson Lexington. It is not even a very smart hotel.
"Service charge" of 18% was added, and the tab still left a gap for tips!
Fun Alternatives: For that price, a drink at the Bleekman Tower Hotel (qv) is much better value.

Woodbury Common was sold to us as the best place to shop for less, a place to get those designer clothes for less and it had also been recommended to me by a few people so you can imagine my horror when I arrived there and found that most of clothes were about 2 years out of date!! and we had the pleasure of spending $40 to get there on the bus that goes from the Port of Authority building and back again. I spent more money getting there and back then I did actually in the place.

Why people visit this area confounds me. I suppose it is pleasant in the day to look at the bridges, ships and east river and shop at Pier 16. Still, do not hang around here at night. It is more than safe. However, you will be surrounded by tourists and overall it is not an entertaining area. The bars and restaurants are overpriced and are not good. Please avoid this area at night.
