    Teddy Roosevelt's birth place is a wonderful place for kids, run by the Park Service. Tour is well done. Lot of information, but definitely aimed at youngsters. Not enough for history lovers. My grand...  more »

    Worth a visit if you have most of the other known exhibits in NY. A brownstone property several floors.  more »

    This is a very nice place! Tours are about 45 minutes, and are very good. My tour guide was nice and seemed happy to inform us about all the stuff! They also have a small Junior Ranger Program for kid...  more »

    Interesting tour provided for the birthplace of Theodore Roosevelt. Authentically decorated rooms with a lot of the original 19th-c furniture. Exact reprints of the wallpapers. First and second floors on display. Definitely worth seeing if you're​ a history buff or interested in historic homes. The house is actually a replica built slightly​ after Theodore Roosevelt's death, on its original site. It is free to tour, unusual in NYC!

    It all depends on your tour guide and how much they can make the place and it's occupants come to life. Has a pretty easy Junior Ranger program for the kids, which is a great introduction to TR - and they love the badge they get. Unfortunately, the museum exhibits on the lower level leave much to be desired. The only real items of interest are the shirt, eye glass case, and folded speech that TR had when shot in 1912, all showing the bullet holes. Years ago they used to have e many of his own taxidermy birds from when he was a teenager, but they removed them after the renovation because they didn't have the right controlled environment for them. But if you are in lower Manhattan and have an hour to spare to grab the 40 minute tour of ahead and do it.

    Small house, original furnishings and reproduction wallpaper from the old prints, movie is a bit hokey, but Rangers are dedicated and knowledgeable. Get your national parks passport stamped here. I liked it, tours on the hour

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.
