New York City means different things to different people. There’s the New York City of TV and movie fame and the New York City of guidebooks. Both are different from the New York of New Yorkers.
New York can seem utterly overwhelming to first-time visitors. But it is actually one of the US’s most compact and navigable cities. New York City is made up of five boroughs, loosely understood as counties: The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and Manhattan. New York is also the jumping-off point for other major East Coast destinations.
As most New York City guides will tell you, you can get deals on accommodations in New York despite it being quite expensive. New York City guides can give you a list of hostels, mid-priced chain hotels, and even more expensive hotel chains and boutique hotels. If going around the city, the New York city guide can given you good information in using the city’s subway and bus systems, as well as how to hail a taxi!
New York’s culinary landscape has been defined by mass media as a smorgasbord of street food like pizza, pasta bowls, hot dogs and pretzels served up from street carts. However, street food in New York has become incredibly sophisticated in the past few years all dished out of food trucks that park temporarily at curbs or food markets all over New York.
Most guide books recommend the same set of tried and true tourist attractions, but New York City offers many more activities and sites. New York boasts a large number of parks. If you’re visiting New York in winter, you can enjoy ice skating for free in Bryant Park, located behind the main branch of the New York Public Library. In summer months, free films are offered on the same lawn every Monday night.
If you intend to do a lot of indoor entertainment during a New York travel you can go to any of New York’s comedy clubs. You can go to a Broadway show during a New York travel. It is also highly recommended to visit any of the city’s museums during your travel to New York.
