New York City Travel

Is 800 dollars a big enough budget for two people in NYC for four days? Hotel and flight already paid for.

    As long as your hotel and flight have already been paid for, it should be fine. What were you planning on doing? Sleeping with expensive Russian hookers?

    Doing tourist stuff. But I should have corporate sponsorship for certain museums.

    That won't cut it, you need armed security to stay safe in NYC and your budget is too low for that.

    hotel and flight paid for?
    assume transport will take away 100? if you use subway 2x a day both of you that is 10 about. 40 over 4 days. getting to the city from the airport both of you 2x. depending where you stay, you may spend some days just in walking distance of your accommodation.

    i suppose it depends what your interest in nyc is

    while you may want to into museums or exhibits - you can see tourist landmarks from the outside and feel you are experiencing new york
    food is over priced - but you can eat classic New York foods within this budget - maybe not a nyc steakhouse tho. but a slice of pizza, halal guys, chinese food, some israelite deli food.
    you may like the idea of a bar or going out - if you want to get drunk you might have to pregame or do some shots to be economical about it
    doing all these you will probably have money to go to an event or show if that appealed to you

    That's enough. Avoid trendy tourist restaurants because there is affordable food, slice pizza never hurt anyone if you want to go all out and run out of money but you can easily stay under $50 a day per person with food. The subway fairs ever increasing but tons of locals skip the fair tbh. I don't blame them the subway is atrocious, but it is 24 hours so can't beat that. It's also find to bike or walk, tons of people walk the bridges between buroughs. Go to Brooklyn for food, and go to delis for sandwiches. Diners open all night. Food trucks are plenty. Many international cuisine. I am not kidding do not eat in manhattan!!! Ton of things are free like museums, and statue of liberty. If you pay for something it's a tourist trap.

      New York Public transportation is dogshit. Berlins runs 24/7 and it's a dream compared to NY and shit compared within Germany. US is a shithole Nation worse than literal 3rd world countries.

        Wow it's almost like I just said that. On the bright side the nyc metro can take you to good food.

    Source: I live here and before that traveled here a dozen times

    New York is going to cost you minimum $20 any time you want to step outside. But the sights are free.

    The train is full of cringe schizos but costs $3

    Dinner will likely be the biggest cost outside of that

    Living in New York now.

    Yes it’s definitely enough don’t worry just take public transit not taxis or uber

    Suggested itinerary:
    Saint Patrick’s cathedral
    Central Park
    Statue of Liberty
    Brooklyn Bridge
    Grand Central Station
    Times Square
    Flat iron building
    Empire State Building
    The vessel
    Metropolitan museum of art ( not moma )
    That’s probably all you need to do if you don’t rush.

    Welcome and have a nice time

    If you venture out , there is no need to go to the Bronx or Staten Island, queens is good you could go drinking in Williamsburg, Brooklyn is okay, Queens ( where i live ) is good.

    The related map isa useful tool and the safest subway line is the 7 for related reasons :

    Enough to cover the unlimited tour pass + food so I’d say yes it’s enough.
