Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world. An agglomeration of vastly different cultures from around the world, the city is perhaps best explored through its many small diners and world-famous restaurants. With a population of over 8 million, the city is one of the world's major centers for media, fashion, food, culture, art, research, trade, and finance. Its famous skyline includes some of the most recognizable buildings on the planet, drawing millions of tourists from every corner of the world. To experience the city more fully, travel on foot or on the subway. Plan the details of your New York City holiday and any onward adventuring with our easy-to-use United States trip planner.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
