New York City, NY in a nutshell

America's most populous city is also one of its smallest, with 305 square miles densely populated with competing skyscrapers, busy streets, and a jostle of the most culturally diverse people one can ever encounter. New York City is a hodgepodge of anything and everything the country has to offer, and beyond. Tourists can never find themselves lost in the cultural capital of the world, with mixed signs and posts that further prove it is also the nation's most linguistically diverse. Annually, 50 million people journey through the streets of the "Crossroads of the World' with varying purposes; some drive towards the Wall Street or to the New York Stock Exchange, scholars head to Ivy League universities, while others run towards the Subway. Keeping up with New York City's pulse can be exhilarating-energy pumps throughout the avenues of Williamsburg, Times Square, and Wall Street at an almost exhausting pace. Tourists can traipse up and down Museum Mile, duck into the area's art galleries, or wander through Soho's streets with arms loaded of shopping bags. The legwork can be thrilling, and you can at least start somewhere. With a majestic view from the Empire State Building, there's no need to say the best way is to start on top.

'The city seen from the Queensboro Bridge is always the city seen for the first time, in its first wild promise of all the mystery and beauty in the world.
F. Scott Fitzgerald, the great American authors who penned classics like ˜The Great Gatsby', was one among the millions of people who have loved New York City to the core, perhaps more than their hometowns. 

New York is where life meets dreams and dreams meet life. It is a city that never sleeps and yet, somehow, with a twisted twist in the fate, is always drowsy. Nobody has time here to question life. From high end boutique shops and million dollar jewelry stores to street side news vendors with a stash of vintage Coltrane vinyl discs, New York has it all. 

From movies like ˜Taxi Driver' and ˜Gangs of New York' to ˜Manhattan' and ˜Midnight Cowboy', New York of all types and kinds has been etched into the texture of culture that people often love to call their Americanness. Agreed, this city is nothing like any other you will see in America, perhaps the world, but it's a city that people resort to in dreams and hopes, follies and virtues, ambitions and broken hearts “ it's a city that just knows how to assimilate everyone, anyone really. 

If you are planning on visiting New York City, make it a point to live in New York, rather than just hopping sight (there are plenty of those, anyway!), and you can be sure to find some unforgettable memories in busy mean streets of this hazy city. 

Cheap Stays in New York 

New York is a city that knows not how to say no. So, you are going to find all kinds of establishments here, from cheap hotels to luxury resorts that can only be entered into if you are a legit celebrity. 

Finding accommodation shouldn't be a problem here, though, as the city holds the highest number of hotel rooms in all of North America. 

For finding affordable hotels in New York, you will probably have to head down to one of the cheaper boroughs, perhaps Queens would be the best bet for you. You are guaranteed to find great hotel rooms at reasonable prices in most suburbs of Queens. 

From heritage establishments like the Marcel and the Bentley, to a whole chain of Doubletree resorts by Hilton, New York offers many affordable staying options for tourists and travelers. 

Flying High and Mighty 

If cheap hotels don't really appeal to your senses or your idea of a perfect gateaway in New York, you can always turn your head to any of the many luxury hotels in New York. 

And be sure “ New York is as luxurious as it gets in America (of course, if you discount Vegas). Name a reputed chain of resorts and you are going to find at least one establishment owned and operated by them in New York. 

Take the Plaza Hotel for example. Now owned by Trump Group, the Plaza Hotel has a longstanding history that features the likes of Marilyn Monroe and Truman Capote. If you need more of luxury, Hilton at Time Square can be a great pick. Not many things can beat the feeling of living smack in the center of Time Square. Other popular New York hotels in this segment include Waldorf Astoria, Ritz Carlton Central Park and Wyndham New Yorker etc. 

Some Offbeat Sights in New York 

Everyone is aware of famous sights to see in New York “ from the Ellis Island to Time Square and from the Museum of Natural History to MoMA. 

So, assuming that you are going to visit these places anyway, let's take a look at some of the understated and often ignores sights in New York. 

New York Public Library boasts of the largest collection of physical information in the world. Just walking through giant corridors of its imposing building is enough to make you fall in love with it. Another attraction well worth visiting is Staten Island Ferry Trip that proves to be some respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. 

Performing arts lovers can head in the evening to Broadway to see what the best known theater street in the world has to offer. Also, Radio City Music Hall regularly features great bands and acts. 

Hotels Near New York Airport 

Almost all of tourists arriving in New York use the JFK International Airport as their point of entry. Although the airport is not too far away from the city, it makes sense for tourists to look for some good New York hotels near the airport, for the sake of convenience. 

If you happen to be looking for such a hotel, there are quite a few branded hotel chains operating in this area. However, these are perennially booked to the brim. So, make sure that you book well prior to your trip to avoid any last minute hassle and running around. 

When Should You Head to New York?

It really depends on what you want to visit New York for. 

If you are planning on visiting New York just to tick it off your checklist, then probably summer months will provide you the best deal of fun, activity and sightseeing. 

If you are looking to get some romantic time off, away from the shackles of domestic life, then winter (October to December) can be a great time to visit New York. Unlike most parts of America, New York is at its busiest around Christmas. Hotel prices are manageable and of course, who wouldn't love to see the counting down ceremony in Time Square and enjoy the overall holiday ambiance in historic streets of New York? 

So, the final word is that New York City is as good as it gets. Make your plans come true and enjoy the stay in New York to your fullest. It's very much possible that you will be coming back to this magical city time and time again, sooner rather than later!
