About New York

Including tips for the best time to visit New York

Visiting New York City is sort of like déjà vu – countless films and shows are filmed here, so all the yellow taxis, hot dog vendors, and crazy Manhattan lights always feel strangely familiar. It's also home to the world's most famous skyline, dominated by the Empire State Building, an Art Deco masterpiece. Constantly reinventing and setting new trends in fashion, food, and art, the city is also a major hub for finance and trade with the famous Wall Street at its core.

The city is split into the boroughs of Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, and Staten Island, and each has its own unique feel. Manhattan is home to hip neighborhoods like the Greenwich Village and SoHo, while Brooklyn has its Botanic Garden, the New York Aquarium, and the famous Coney Island boardwalk. A ferry from Battery Park to Ellis Island offers incredible views of the city before reaching the fascinating Immigration Museum. You'll also sail past the iconic Statue of Liberty with plenty of time to take photos from all angles.

Broadway shows are second to none, featuring a variety of major musicals and plays. The enormous Central Park offers an oasis in the middle of all the busle, perfect for a peaceful stroll past its lakes, outdoor theaters, and ice-skating rink.

New York is served by three major airports: JFK, Newark Liberty International, and LaGuardia, with public transportation options available at each one.

The atmosphere was very nice of you to the COVID-19 from them in the streets weren’t as crowded and there was nothing really to do but the immediate area was very nice and it was lots of stuff to see.

I love staying by Grand Central Station because I always a know how to get back from whatever area I visit. Easy to grab food there, too if you need to make a show. Beautiful city with so much to see and do I could never cover it all but: Little Italy, China town, High Line trail, Times Square, The Vessel,....

April 25, 2020

There are many great places to go and see when you go to New York. There are so many things to do and see the you pretty much can't do it all in one visit. The best thing to do to plan a visit to NYC for visiting is to map out a plan of what you want to see and do. Even then you may end up spending way more time at one place doing something that it will throw off your schedule so leave plenty of time for each thing/place. Getting around can be challenging because of the traffic. But you can find taxis/ubers/lyfts pretty much anywhere. If you drive your own cars be aware that parking garages in NYC are expensive. $50-60 per day. Eating options in NYC are endless. You could eat many kinds of food and not get bored. All the regular tourist spots are fun to experience at least once in your life. The Statue of Liberty was amazing to visit and to learn about all the history that comes from that.

I can’t decide if there were more rude people in New York or Atlanta!!! I’d say it’s pretty close. I was superb surprised with the virus rising in New York that there were so many people everywhere walking around with no protection. We had masks, gloves, sanitizers, sanitizing wipes everywhere we went.

Great place to visit.

March 20, 2020

Great place to visit. Airport Taxi drivers (yellow cabs) not friendly and overcharge. JFK / Manhattan both ways is set at $52 but they charged us $67 going $65 to return (not including tip). Everything else was great with friendly helpful people. Subway works well to all areas with Subway stations everywhere and always felt safe. Take the $19.50 "Statue Cruises" which actually drop you off at Liberty Island to see the Statue of Liberty and walk around and inside the monument with an audio guide included. Many places to eat for all budgets. Plan your days as you will find time goes quickly with so many interesting places. Walk the Brooklyn Bridge for a great all round view and experience NYC traffic.
