  • A charming place, has a very special atmosphere. There are often many people and sometimes gets a little complicated to take the photos that you want, but once you get it you are happy. A place to photograph architecture.

  • The busy station, from where there are plenty of small shops for a souvenir shop. Mm. toy store Kidding Around was a great discovery. In addition, can be found in the fashion, cosmetics and chocolate.

  • Don't miss a visit to the central station in New York, feels like a movie of the early 900, in the central hall with original ticket scanned again, although all have maintained the same shape as the original

  • Served as Bookkeeper for O Henry's Film works. Office situated within terminal. 🌺❤️🌺
  • It's not about the hype.
  • Often seen in films this station shines for its cleanliness and quality of its marbled walls. It feels really within a film. Don't forget to find the Oster bar inside the station, behind you will find a place called "The whispering wall" where if one stops in a corner and speaking to the wall (well nearly), in the opposite corner a person can listen to it.

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.
