New York City Reviews

  • 80%



    Amazing city, definitely worth a visit. I like how New York offers a variety of things to do from the very touristy Times Square and Empire State Building to the more authentic example of life for New Yorkers in the other boroughs than Manhattan. Manhattan is a lot of fun though and everything looks like the movies.

    Insider Tip:Never eat at a restaurant near Times Square, you will get ripped off!

    It's a very expensive city, but it's worth it. Apart from all the known tourist attractions, it is very pleasant to just walk around the city. Manhattan is very walkable and public transport is everywhere. It is also worth crossing the Brooklyn Bridge and visiting Williamsburg.

    Insider Tip:I recommend buying the unlimited metro card, it costs 30usd and is valid for 7 days. With this card you can ride buses and subway as many times as you want in that period.

    Totally worth the price!

    As we all know, New York is probably one of the most expensive destinations in the world if you want it to be. New York definitely has its fair share of amazing street food for little to no money. If you want the entire world at the palm of your hands, you should definitely head to NYC.

    Insider Tip:I would avoid city tours and sightseeing buses. Buy a metro pass and explore by foot. You will not get a true feel of NYC if you do not explore all of the boroughs!
