  • In this square is the essence of New York, of what is seen in the films, life and culture of the people, you can find a Hare Krishna dealing you candy or flowers, people playing chess on the tables of the Park, kids throwing an amer soccer ball icano from one end to another of the plaza or artists street to livening up the people who congregate there. It is a must-see, because here you will know the true New York

  • Central Square overlooked by mega stores and hotels, and from where there are several sightseeing bus companies. Walk the gateway to Chinatown and the skyscrapers of Downtown. Nothing memorable, than the extraordinary charm of the rest of the city, but spending is almost a must.

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.
