An urban village that attracts thousands of visitors every year, Little Italy is known for its restaurants.

  • Half of the day was to visit China Town, which won me over! Just because adjacent, I made a small detour to visit the neighborhood of Little Italy, which honestly were shooting at me for nothing, apart from the wonder of seeing here on the other side of the ocean, shop signs in Italian. The district that was probably more lively and characteristic in the past, today honestly not worth a visit.

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.
