New York City Guide, Where to go, Attractions, Restaurants, Hotels, Events
New York city is truly the city that never sleeps. With it’s tall skyscrapers, hustle and bustle and well laid out city streets, your adventure will begin as soon as you arrive. The many songs that you hear about New York are all true. Manhattan has been a Mecca to celebrities and prominent travelers due to the rich culture and plush luxury and boutique hotels. New York City can accommodate the adventurous and relaxed traveler. The key is to plan an itinerary, prioritizing the activities or sights that you want to experience the most.
New York City is broken down into sections. The five Burroughs are Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx, Manhattan and Stanten Island. Manhattan is the area rich with museums, history, Broadway shows, nightlife and even Wall Street. Manhattan is a great walking city. Most everything there can be walked to, though you may want to take a cab if you are running short on time. Since the city is so densely populated with residents and tourists alike, it is much easier to travel on foot or by cab. I would not recommend a rental car if your are visiting New York, unless you intend on seeing other parts of the State. Otherwise, foot and mass transportation will be the best bet.
Times Square is a must see if you are going to visit New York City. There are many luxury hotels in New York
and many of the boutique hotels in New York
are available in the heart of the most diverse and action packed Times Square area. The bright lights, restaurants, comedy clubs, bars and shops is enough to keep you busy for an entire evening. If you plan to see a comedy show however, I do recommend that you call ahead for show times. Ha Comedy Club and Caroline’s Comedy Club would be two of the top picks. The Iridium is a well known and liked Jazz Club that would be a nice relaxing night out. All types of diners are available until very late to catch a meal after your evening out. Times Square is very modern, but you will see police on horseback. For an interesting museum, tourists like the Ripley’s Believe it or Not located in the Times Square area. Here you will find some of the World’s most odd and bizarre artifacts. At Times Square you will enjoy a plethora of café’s, diners, and restaurants from French cuisine to pizzeria’s. The smells of fresh foods permeate the streets. Check out hotels near Times Square
