You'll get a unique taste of the Big Apple by choosing from a range of exciting things to do in New York City. Start at Tenement Museum and Ellis Island to see the city through the eyes of immigrants who shaped it about a century ago. The rich collections of MOMA and Metropolitan Museum of Art attract millions of visitors each year, but to experience the opulence of the early industrial age, check out Frick Collection, housed in an 18th-century mansion on Fifth Avenue. Whether you're a romantic or not, don't leave the city before you climb to the top of Empire State Building or without spending a relaxed afternoon in Central Park.

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.
