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.

  • A really excellent museum that won't break the bank either. They have a really wonderful collection of items. Just don't get stuck behind a tour, because the tour guides like to perch them in the entrances to all the exhibits so you can't actually see anything until they decide to leave! (Saying "excuse me" also didn't work on the guides...)
  • I love this museum that offers very beautifully curated exhibits in addition to lovely spaces to just take time to meditate and look out at the Statue of Liberty. Can't wait to get back to NYC And visit the museum.
  • Wonderful collection and a beautiful space. After your finished inside, there's ample park space along the water to reflect.
  • This was a great museum! We spent about two and a half hours in here, the exhibits are nicely detailed and the progression is perfect. The first floor goes through Jewish traditions, the second floor is about the horrific events of the holocaust and the third floor details life for Jews after World War Two and what they have done to rebuild their lives and their valuable place in society today.
  • Very friendly and helpful staff. love their museum
