    My favorite thing was probably going on a boat tour around Manhattan. When I go again, I’m going to the met cloisters. Looks awesome and I didn’t know about it when I went.

    I enjoyed just walking around Manhattan. Plenty of cool things to see literally everywhere. Good food.
    Also, take a walk on the Brooklyn Bridge and check out the view from Brooklyn, it's a nice area to walk around.

      This. I was there back in 2013, and while I was a little kid (13), I realized how awful the place is. Very crowded, expensive pricing, overall just not a pleasant place to be vacationing to. I don't know what kind of person you'd have to be to unironically enjoy staying at NYC, but my experience there was miserable.

        Wish I was able to, but I did this trip to get my Swedish Passport so things were booked, what was done was done. Still I'd like to see this place some time, looks beautiful, thanks for recommending.

    The Staten Island ferry is free and you can see the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island from it. In lower Manhattan there's a speakeasy with a hidden entrance where they serve the drinks in tea cups, it's called The Back Room.

    I booked 5 nights in May because I saw the flights are so cheap (from UK). Planning to get on a bus day tour to Washington while I'm there since I doubt I will ever be around that part of the world again, but it's a 4+ hour bus ride each way

        Just booked it through delta air lines directly on their website. Flying from Gatwick to JFK, then I got a return 10 days later from Toronto (it's an air France code share so goes through Paris). Not entirely sure how it compares, but it cost me £330 which is quite a bit less than I assumed a flight to New York would be

        Dude, don't come to this shit hole. NYC is overpriced and even more dangerous than London. Now with the migrants from Latin America, everyone's even more at each others' throats. Go somewhere else in Europe if anything.

          how much is the rest of the holiday though? In terms of flights and your budget for whatever you expect to do?

            It isn't going to be cheap but that's ok. I made a booking on a hotel which comes out to £175/night, still 6months away but it's free cancellation so I'm not tied to it, just wanted to get one in at least because I don't see it getting cheaper. Probably like £3k total?

              interesting, I'm hoping to book something for sometime in early 2025 and hope to have about £4,500
              I'm hoping I can find something that might let me stretch it to ten days but also have a comfy hotel

      Piggybacking this thread for my own NYC questions. I've been three times, going again for three nights in December. Never been to Koreatown or Chinatown. What, if any, is worth seeing in these areas?

      flushing chinatown is better than downtown canal street. better food, cheaper, more options, more to see and less Black folk. koreatown is fun if youre looking to eat korean bbq family style, get drunk and sing karaoke, or bang a 50 year old korean mamasan in a happy ending massage, but either way you cant go wrong. Most restaurants in ktown are good and serve the same food at the same price.

    I have a question

    I have 5 days reserved in a hotel in Manhattan, but if I were to change it to 3 days and then put the 2 days staying somewhere else in New York, where would be the best place for it? I would quite like it to be reachable back to Manhattan within 30 or 40mins or so on the subway so nothing too out there, and it also has to be a safe area (pic related because my go to for safety is to look at a demographic map). My main motive is to save at least $50/night on hotel costs, but if the suggested area has something decent then I am open to it also

      Hey, op here
      I was staying my five days there in Manhattan, I recommend trying to stay in Brooklyn Heights, cheaper and way nicer. Think it's just within your definition of reachable of double check yourself. Check out the Promenade and Prospect Park, chill, nice, refined spots. Did not care for Manhattan. Enjoy bro

    Grab the tram on 59th st and 2nd avenue. It'll take you across the water to Roosevelt Island. It's a neat place to walk around and see the city with minimal crowds. Not many places to eat so try to go after a meal. You can grab the subway, but the tram is a fun and unique way to get there
