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.

  • A beautiful monument of engineering, construction and public service. The world's busiest bridge. Built with one level, but forward looking, adaptable to the later addition of the lower level. See it on holidays when the towers are completely lit up from the inside. Centennial in 2031.
  • Beautiful spot to spend time and.talk with some one special, friends. During the day time great place for barbecues, trail walks, bycicleing, family oriented. Beautiful unique adventures, lots of fun.
  • Always love walking the bridge it's the only way 2 get in the city 4 free n u can always get ur A or C train with seats
  • A beautiful bridge that gives you an expansive view of the Hudson. I haven't driven it but, the walkway is something I recommend anyone to visit. Nevertheless, I do wish that the other walkway was opened though. That's basically seeing another view which is upper Manhattan, the Bronx, and upper New Jersey.
  • Great to walk across, not so much when driving across. Always take the lower level if ou can. The top level is always backed up due to the fact that the buses and trucks need to use it and God forbid there's a crash; you might as well have a BBQ outside.
