  • Was on a night at the musical "the Carole King musical", a biography about the writer of this song. Who loves music from the 50's, 60's years as I will have his bright pleasure. Also if I understand not every word as German, is but the plot and is rewarded with plenty of familiar titles. The spectacular Christmas show at Radio City Hall was very impressive. A common thread in the form of Santa Claus, which tells of a few memories, runs through the 1 1/2 hours that are very entertaining. In between the famous Rockettes; dance again There based Theatre Ballet.

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.
