About New York
New York, Sex and the City Tour. Great fun for all who liked watching the TV-series. Also a nice way to get to know NYC. Chance to pop into Steve's and Aidan's bar (to have Cosmos of course) and e.g. to Marc Jacobs shop. Take a foto of you and your frieds in front of Carrie's apartment. Book your tickets beforehand from the website.
I went to visit a friend over spring break one year. We traveled to the City for 2 days and I got to see some of it, but not all. New York is so huge that it takes much more time to visit all the hot spots. It was a bit underwhelming for me. It's just a big city. Although, I'm so glad I got to see the Brooklyn Bridge in person. It's legendary. One big tip, I guess, is that if you don't want to pay to take the ferry to Liberty Island, the Staten Island ferry is free and you get close to the statue on your way there.
It's a fantistic city but it''s just too dirty everywehre pelicanpoker said about Rehobeth Beach Boardwalk:Rehoboth Beach has an amazing boardwalk With the beach, and the sun, Rehoboth Beach is a place with loads of fun With the beach, and the sun, Rehoboth Beach is a place with loads of fun.

You really can't go to New York without seeing the Statue of Liberty. Everybody thinks so and there are a zillion tourists around. The place is worth visiting though.
juha from Finland wrote about New York Stock Exchange 5 years, 2 months ago
Take the tour. It's amusing. At least when I visited the recording said that NYSE is the leading electronic trade place utilizing newest technology for trading. Still the floor is filled with guys running around with paper slips in their hands and giving hand signs to do the deal. Really high tech indeed! :)

jussi from Finland wrote about Historic Downtown New York 4 years, 9 months ago
The historic downtown is where New York began originally but the downtown has been remarkable also afterwards. It was fun to visit the Ellis Island where the immigrants from Finland arrived on their way to a better future. We saw items from Finland as well as signs in finnish in the museum. And of course the iconic Liberty Island is great to see, not least because of the great view to the Manhattan skyline.
juha from Finland wrote about Empire State Building 5 years, 3 months ago
I guess this is something you need to visit when in New York but besides that it's not that great. The views are great of course but that's about it.
paavo from Indonesia wrote about Grand Hyatt New York 4 years, 8 months ago
Not good value for money at all. The rooms I've stayed (3 separate rooms) all had bad air. The more inexpensive ones were actually nicer; junior-suite I stayed in was absolutely of horrible value. The hotel was decorated sometimes in the nineties.
The breakfast sets you back for about USD35 but may be worth it. Includes a fantastic omelette. Other quite positive thing is the fitness-center on the top-floor.
streetforce1 from USA wrote about Apollo Theater 4 years, 10 months ago
The Apollo Theater is a landmark in Harlem. An Apollo Hall was founded in NY in the mid-1860s by former Civil War General Edward Ferrero as a dance hall and ballroom. It was later moved to a new location and converted into a theater. Today the location is mainly associated with African-American music and was the location that launched many careers of many popular African-American artist.

We tried to go during the holiday season (thanksgiving to christmas) and it was a horrendous line. We tried again during September (after schools were back in session) at night in the middle of the week and went right up. It was definitely worth it, once to see the lights and the vastness.
Martsu from Finland wrote about Stand UP NY 4 years, 5 months ago
A great place to enjoy stand up in New York city is the stand up ny comedy club in the 236 west 78th street. Tickets to the club are 15-20 dollars per person and there is a two drink minimum. Drinks are about 10 dollars each but there are also some offers like a bucket of beers 45 dollars. There are people selling tickets half price to the club on the time square, and it's safe to buy also from them. The 20 dollars is a money well spend from a fun night.
Martsu from Finland wrote about Times Square 4 years, 5 months ago
When visiting New York a musical or a theatre show is a must. Tickets to Broadway shows are normaly about 100-120 dollars. But there are also places to buy tickets to the same day show for half price, for example the TKTS booth in time square. In weekends you will find the booth from it's enormous lines. They start to sell the tickets to the same days shows at to pm.
Martsu from Finland wrote about Royal Park Hotel and Hostel 4 years, 5 months ago
The accomodation in NY is most likely the most expensive part of your trip. In NY a good hostel normaly better than a poor hotel. Royal park hotel and hostel has the great location just of Broadway in 97th street. The nearest subway is just in the corner. I recommend booking a room with ensuite facilities. The public areas, shared toilets and the rooms with shared bathrooms are not renovated. The rooms don't seem to be very safe either. The rooms with own bathrooms are much better in standard. lot bigger and not that much more expensive.
HS from Finland wrote about Ellis Island 4 years, 4 months ago
All the immigrants passed through this small island to America. Here was physical examination to all immigrants and the doctors decided who are health enough go to main land. Today it´s a museum and there are lots of information about immigrants. Very interesting place to visit.
HS from Finland wrote about Statue of Liberty 4 years, 4 months ago
If you´re in New York, you should definitely go to see the Statue of Liberty. The statue was the present from French people to American people when the country became independent. There are lots of tourists around the statue taking pictures. It´s a little bit difficult to get the whole statue on the picture, because of its height.
tonni from Finland wrote about Rockefeller Center 4 years, 4 months ago
We went there during xmas, and I must say that if you want to see a big christmas tree, this is not the place you want to be. Pathetic! Go to Finland and I guess pretty much every city with more than 5000 citizens has a bigger and prettier tree.
