  • Out of the way for the less adventurous tourist but this park offers some of the best views in the city. Many turrets look out over the Hudson offering a surprisingly beautiful view of the forest covered Jersey shoreline. This park is also home to The Cloisters Museum. A branch of the Met this museum holds many beautiful and rare examples of early European religious art. Tourists, get there while you can before the city decides to make you pay full admission fee! That's right, Met museums are PAY WHAT YOU WANT. Don't be fooled by the "suggested donation" signs. Though, a few dollars a head allows the museums to remain cheap and high-quality.
  • My favorite Nyc park. Great views, the museum is gorgeous. The dog run is huge and the flower garden always has variety of beautiful flowers. Go early to claim the best picnic spots (the lawn by the loop) and new leaf cafe is great for a quick bite. You can also take the A or M4 right to the park. No car needed.
  • This place is an absolute gem. You don't feel like you are in NYC anymore. The park has a gorgeous flower garden, great views of the cliffs across the Hudson and if course is home to the Cloisters museum. The park is also less crowded than some of the other parks in the city. Great place to spend a sunny, summer afternoon
  • Beautiful park. We were on our way to the Cloisters and enjoyed every minute of it. I forgot I was in New York for a while. It was easily accessible from the subway too.
  • Beautiful park. In some places you could almost not hear the sounds of the city. Great place for a run or walk to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.

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.
