I love New York City. I have been there twice and both experiences were different. I love the culture, the food and that there is so much to do and see. You literally will not run out of things to do.
Insider Tip:Go to the Rockefeller Center for a good view of the city. Take the Staten Island Ferry to see the Statue of Liberty, the ferry is free. Don't stay on Staten Island because there isn't anything to there. There is free wifi on the ferry. My favorite shopping areas are the East Village and Williamsburg, Brooklyn. NYC has Uber and Lyft. The most I paid to use Lyft was $13. Of course you can always walk or take the subway.
