    Quiet and cozy place for New Yorkers. After the famous tourist spots very calmly and slowly. At 9 pm on the streets almost deserted. On Sunday fairs are held close to the Museum of natural history. You can buy farm products. Many shops and restaurants. Building of dark red bricks of old buildings. But most importantly, near Central Park with all the pleasures. Metro, bus stops, taxis-all available at once.

    In my opinion, an oasis of calm, after spending the day in New York chaos there is nothing better than enjoying a relaxing walk through the west side before returning to your hotel. Tree-lined streets and quaint houses, bars, restaurants and shops but not excessively.

    We rode bikes around Central Park then walked to find lunch. I was really surprised at how much of a suburb feel these areas had being so close to the city.  more »

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.
