  • Ensure that you visit both the museum and the outdoor monument.
  • Was chilly when I stumbled upon it, but just the positive vibe around it was a great feeling that they did not die in vain! Hope to be back to check it out soon!!
  • Worth seeking out, tourist or not. Helpful plaques on the outside give story & context you might otherwise rely on a park ranger for. Interior is beautiful.
  • Stop by and learn about this sacred burial ground, unknown to many until the recent discovery of the site. Because the entire site is fenced off, visitors can only see and take pictures of the memorial from the street, and read the plaques with information about the history and significance of the place.
  • Historic and interesting. Nuff said.

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.
