  • Super cool museum in BPC! The curator-led tour was awesome, and the exhibits were unique and interesting!
  • Great small museum for those with a love of architecture. Worth a drop in. Not sure if anyone knows about it was empty when we went.
  • Very nice place, it gives you information about engineering of sky scapper building in new York as well as from rest of world. Decent place, not crowded.
  • Interesting view of the world's skyscrapers. For architecture nerds.

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.
