    In the old days, unbelievably scary and Yes never have I was not to go now if you go during the day, it's really very good. But the women traveling alone at night, do not go though. I'm scared. Travelling alone at night with a bunch of women are still operative. Still, now that is a real charming place in the daytime look

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.
