    Hotels in NY are £200 a night?

    Not saying there aren't 12 nights of things to do in NY but that's a long time for a single city break to somewhere you've never been.

      Do not go to New York for New Year's as an adult. It's a fricking nightmare. There are a million people packed into Time's Square shitting and pissing on the ground. You stand in the freezing cold for 5 hours to watch 10 minutes of fireworks. It's claustrophobic and 90 percent of the people seem miserable

    Wouldn't bother. I booked flights there for May when they came up cheap before really considering how much it will cost me. Now I'm just writing off the £300 instead of spending like £3k more because I'd rather just spend that £3k for a couple months in SEA

    I’ve never been to NY so I’m curious on OP’s behalf, is there a New York version of Paris Syndrome? I’m guessing not, because no one really expects NY to be nice.

      People who expect to enjoy New York usually like it more than they expect to because there is so much that doesn't get captured on TV. People who aren't expecting to like it usually like it more than they expect to because the bad parts aren't as bad as they expect.

      Is this worth it?

      OP, would you pay the same price for London? London and New York are very similar in everything except for Americanness. If you'd pay $3k for the American (and better) version of London go for it. Personally I think you can make a trip for a bit less than that.

        I love New York City. I want to live, breathe, eat, work, shit, and die, in that city. But no.
        For one people expect the tourist areas to be even semi-decent like Europe, but they're not. It's usually in some way disgusting and slightly lawless, especially the worst offender, Times Square. So going there and "seeing the sights" is a good way to hate the city.
        Second, if you want an example of hell on Earth, just take the 2 to 125th st or anything further into Harlem. Jesus. Central Brooklyn and parts of Queens, despite being as black, are not even close to as bad as central Harlem.

    I'm doing a solo trip to New York next month as well, first ever solo trip, i'd advise you not just stay in New York for the full extent of the trip, get a train to DC/Philly or something. I'm moving around a lot while i'm there to make things a bit cheaper, probably spending about a week in NYC itself, then 2 days in upstate new york (staying with a friend so don't have to pay anything), then a few days in Boston.

      I should say though, if you're worried about price etc but also worried about "missing out" while you're in NYC; don't. People go for weekend trips from the UK even though it's so far away for a reason. You'll have a good time but it is fricking EXPENSIVE. Like, i'm sort of coping with the fact that i've spent so much money already with the excuse of "well i'm not JUST in new york".

    Dont bother, New York is a multicultural hellscape. Depending on what you're looking for I can recommend a few places to visit that I would recommend for someone never been to America.

    If you want pleasant, safe and historical I recommend visiting any city along the coast of Connecticut, very pleasant and quaint.

    If you want capitalism, its history and monoliths of power, go see Washington DC. Very powerful place, you can even go see the white house.

    If you want normal? Day to day? Just city life of an average joe, go see Pittsburgh PA or Columbus OH.

    These are just a few cities of course, but I would very much recommend visiting a rural area as well as this is where many aspects of life in america shines brightest. Especially car culture, farming, hunting, fishing, if you've never been, make sure to visit the gun range while you're here! America is a lot more than just new york. And if you ask me ide say it's kind of a poor reflection of our culture here in the grand scheme of things.

      Oh also none of the places I mentioned are even close to the price of being In new york, you would probably end up spending 30% less money and having a way better time.

      Also another couple honorable mentions you could visit are Norfolk/Virginia beach
      And ocean city Maryland if you like beaches, I would only visit during late spring or summer however

        NYC is not a hellscape. It's just a big city, and yes, it does reveal a lot more about America than you want to admit. In any case, NYC has fewer homeless people and street drug users than many other American cities, at least in the parts that tourists visit.
        Rural America is dreary and depressing in the cold rainy months of spring. Too yucky to leave your vehicle, nothing to do but drive around. Once the trees leaf out and everything greens up, then it gets beautiful.

          You guys don't know what you're talking about
          In Connecticut you can go see historical shit from Colonial America all week long and eat fresh oysters for breakfast lunch and dinner if you want to.
          I went to mystic last year and had a great time.
          they have an aquarium, cool beaches, old forts, fishing piers,
          military museums, all sorts of shit.

          Connecticut kicks ass.

          >NYC is not a hellscape. It's just a big city,

          So, yeah, a hellscape.

      I hate nyc but its the only worthwhile city and place to visit in the US. The rest are just copes for flyovercels and ruraloids. At least you get your moneys worth for the most part in NYC, most other major cities in the US pale in comparison, cost just as much (maybe Chicago is exception, dont cope with failed cities like philibongo or some literal who city), have less to do and have horrible transporatation which almost doubles the price of your trip. if youre looking for quaint and history than you cant go wrong with savannah or charleston but clearly OP wants the cosmopolitan globohomosexual experience

      Thing is I like live music especially avant-garde/jazz and shit and it's certainly the best place on earth for that. I love literature and books in general which helps too.

      I can understand that someone who has no hobby and just do the tourist spots don't want to spend more than 3 days there, but if you have hobbies outside of the internet or hiking, I don't understand how you could get bored here.

    go in summer, any other season isnt worth it, and then go to Long Island, Fire Island and Montauk specifically. Big holiday towns, decent beaches, really only worthwhile thing around here. Unless you want drugs or to watch minorities assault other minorities and old people, then any season is fine in nyc. You could come in fall and do the outdoor type crap upstate or skiing in winter. Either way, the city is a good place to start from but try to get as far away from it as possible if you can.

    I don't see why you'd go that far and spend all that money for your first time out of the country, somewhere in Europe would be much better value. Go and see Rome, Vienna, Krakow, or go and visit a Greek island, the Dalmatian coast, or the south of Spain. You could do most of them over the course of few holidays for that money.

    Just fly to Denver and rent a car to see Grand Teton. Buy some camping gear at a Scheels, pay the $20 nightly fee at the campground, and return everything when you're done. If you can't return it, just leave it at Union station for the needy. Just set it on the sidewalk out front, it'll be gone in minutes.
