    I can't wait to live here

    Expensive, but worth every penny. There is always something going on, and the bars don't close until 4am

    One of the World's Top 5 City Experiences

    New York has a little bit for everyone. If you are into art, make sure not to miss the MoMA. Nothing tastes better than $1 pizza in St. Marks after having a couple of beers in the area. If you're lucky enough to be visiting in December, it is one of the world's most magical places.

    Insider Tip:As a first-time visitor you might be tempted to stay around the Theatre District, but strolling around East Village is a delight.

    It is what you make it to be! NYC

    I have friends in the area, so I have been to NYC a lot in the last few years. It can be as cheap or as expensive as you want. The subway is very easy to navigate and if you have a map the possibilities are endless. I love that there is ALWAYS some sort of festival, exhibit, or party happening. I can not tell you about the great parties/clubs/bars because that isn't really my area of expertise. However if you go outside of Time Square and all, that is where you will find the best food.

    Insider Tip:Remember there is no admission fee for the Natural History Museum! the fee they quote you is a SUGGESTED DONATION and if you can only pay $5 then that is fine. Or you don't have to pay anything.
