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.

  • what i lern from here 'hey we out of potato lets go to merica land and FAHK everyone so 90% of merica population is part irish in 2017' ~every irish guy during potato famine. EVERY ONE.
  • A great piece of architecture: if you approach from the river you'll get a completely different experience than the city side. Somehow they have managed to fit a tiny tiny bit of Ireland in this small park. Worth a look.
  • Closed until Spring 2017, but... I love this place. From the quotes to the information about the famine and the efforts made to lessen its effects to the beautiful quiet landscape, it's worth a side journey for some beauty and quietude in the middle of this busy place.
  • Superb!! Beautifully designed memorial to a another Holocaust. Do we ever learn!!
  • It's a cute little memorial, and while it's certainly nothing worth coming downtown for, if you're walking along the water, it's worth taking a quick detour for. It's well done, and while I didn't quite get it at first, after going to the UK and Ireland two years ago, it does actually seem appropriate for the hilly country side with the stones.
