    An impressive wine store. One of the best. Some amazing and outstanding wine values for anywhere in the U.S., let alone in Manhattan in NYC. I found some very hard-to-find French reds at badass prices and their selection is clearly curated by genuine wine lovers of pure, simple wines that taste great. I'm picky as hell about wine selection and pricing. Few can do both really, really well because a store has to attract a high volume of hardcore wine customers to achieve it. But, this is one of the few that sets a standard. I live in Baltimore area and will make a special Saturday trip in the near future just to get at some more of their wines. That's how good this place is. I can't recommend it highly enough.

    I love the store set up, wonderful selection of wines and spirits. Amazing customer service and they always have something on sale. Experience: I left my phone there on a Monday, they emailed me that night saying they had it. Went there Tuesday and picked it up with no problem. That's how you handle a customer situation. Thanks Astor Wines and Spirits.

    Outstanding service, excellent selection, and given the fact that it's in Manhattan, good prices; even more so when you catch one of their frequent sales.

    Fantastic selection across the board and good prices. Wheelchair accessible via nice lift.

    great place to come for some eclectic items. Doesn't have the super rare but do have some great runner ups!

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.
