Taste premium-quality chocolate molded into shapes like the Empire State Building or the Statue of Liberty at Li-Lac Chocolates, Manhattan’s oldest chocolate store. The store offers an extensive selection of chocolate treats, gourmet desserts, and truffles of both classic and modern flavors. All products are handmade, using original recipes and century-old techniques. The store was founded in 1923 by Greek immigrant George Demetrious, who introduced Greenwich Village to the French art of chocolate-making.

  • Very disappointing. Don't get lured by the nice little shop. The chocolate is mediocre and they sell it for the price of gold. It's frustrating to eat poorly made chocolates when there are so many great chocolatiers in town.
  • Pricey but very good chocolates, marzipan and sugar free almonds. Great for a gift.
  • Very croweded
  • Not worth the price!

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.
