More of New York

  1. Long Island City
    This was our first time in Long Island City. A new, up-and-coming residential area that is actually really well connected to Manhattan and the rest of Long Island. Only one stop on the underground to go to Grand Central Station and to go from a sleepy high street to the craziness that is Manhattans largest railway station. Alternatively, you just hop on the ferry to go to Manhattan, Brooklyn, or down to Wall Street and get a fabulous sightseeing tour at the same time. Many high-rise residential buildings are being developed directly at the waterfront with great views of Manhattan, nice restaurants, a high street, bars, and some shops for your everyday needs. More and more microbreweries and galleries pop up in the area and the hip crowd is moving in. I enjoyed the vibe of the streets, the closeness to Manhattan combined with this less hectic small-town feel. Go and explore, you’ll love it.

  2. Brooklyn
    Parts of Brooklyn have become very popular in recent years and more and more people are drawn to this beautiful part of the city. Of course, the walk from Manhattan over the Brooklyn Bridge to the part of Brooklyn called Dumbo has become hugely popular. Williamsburg with its beautiful Brownstone houses and hip-high streets is a huge draw and the street food vans and graffiti's all over add to the appeal. There are hotels opening everywhere in the old warehouse district of Williamsburg with great bars with views of Manhattan. Check out the "Ides Bar" at The Whythe Hotel if you are in the area. Breath-taking view from the inside or outside, really nice staff, and great cocktails! Don't forget Brooklyn on your to-do list for your next New York visit!!

  3. and of course Manhattan
    There is so much to do and see in Manhattan that I don't even know where to begin. As I have been many times, there are particular areas that I keep going back to. For shopping, I visit the lower end of Broadway, where it crosses Houston Street and the whole area around it every time. For food, during the day I love the West Village and Chelsea Market. For a walk check out Highline Park and for that typical New York feeling, walk around the Empire State building. New York's tragic history will hit you around One World Trade Center and Wall Street and those famous streets of New York amaze you, no matter where in the city you walk them. Just walk (with comfy shoes) and enjoy!!
