  • Will that have been there on a Sunday when many businesses were closed, but I was not impressed. There are many fabric stores with a huge amount of fabrics and the like, but I don't think absolutely suited to our tastes, were mostly strange, colourful, full of glitter and sequins, suitable for theatrical costumes or Indian type dresses. the monument with needle and button was then covered by ongoing work. Only stay here if you're looking for something special

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.
