Where to Stay

Stay in one of New York's colourful neighbourhoods

New York may be known as the city that never sleeps, but even the most adventurous amongst us need a place to crash every now and again. A good way to make your stay unique is to avoid the many overused, bleak hotels. Why not go for a beautiful penthouse vacation apartment in one of New York's trendiest districts, or sample a true New York style apartment rental in one of the many districts and boroughs that make up this vibrant metropolis. Popular districts to stay in include Manhattan and Brooklyn, but choosing to stay instead in one of the lesser-known boroughs, such as Queens or even in bordering Long Island, will not only save you money but also give you a better perspective of everyday life for real New Yorkers. Make sure you choose your New York apartment rental close to the subway stations, sites, and attractions that interest you the most.

Things to Do

A view of the iconic Statue of LibertyFor eating out, be sure to venture at least once into both Little Italy and Chinatown. New York City is a metropolis built on the backs of immigrants from around the world, mainly those from Italy, Germany, Poland, Russia, Ireland, and China. As such, we highly recommend enjoying some local Italian food from a true 'Mom and Pop' joint in Little Italy. You'll feel welcome with the great pasta and gnocchi in a small, cramped eating space reminiscent of Rome, complete with red and white checkered table cloths. Try the world-famous New York style pizza, which normally has thin crust and more flavor, unlike the other famous pizza variety from Chicago known as 'deep-dish pizza'. Or why not venture into Chinatown, get a massage and try out some of the world-famous Chinese delicacies at one of the many family-style traditional eateries.

What would you do if you only had two days to spend in New York? Begin at Central Park: a hive of activity, from boating to rock climbing, ice skating to open-air theatres - it’s a top New Yorker hangout for a reason, and exploring the 843 acre park is a must. Indulge in a spot of window shopping: New York attracts millions of shoppers each year and boasts an incredible selection of department giants, boutiques, and speciality shops. Take in the Statue of Liberty: just catch the free ferry between Staten Island and Manhattan. The commuter ferry provides a fantastic opportunity to get a view of the bay and, more importantly, a close-up look at the Statue. Enjoy some arts and culture: Public museums such as the Metropolitan Museum accept donations as an entrance fee, great if you’re visiting on a budget.

Getting Around

New York is a bustling metropolis where even the most seasoned adventurer will find themselves reaching for the map. From taxis to trains, buses to bikes and subways to sidewalks you can always find the perfect connection at any time of day or night. While hailing a big yellow taxi is a must for all first timers to New York, it is recommended you use the subway as much as possible. Picking up a New York Metro Card will allow you access to all buses and subways in the city. This is the perfect option for those looking to sightsee by day and party by night. Many tourists and locals travelling between districts take the ferry. The Statten Island Ferry runs from Battery Park in Southern Manhattan to Staten Island and the New York Water Taxi runs ferries between Manhattan, Brooklyn and New Jersey.

Fantastic Apartment Near Beach

The place is amazing. The host is amazing. The location is amazing. Too bad the commute is so long. If you don't have to go the city everyday, this is the best experience I had and suggest.
