    NYC a good time in the big apple

    NYC was a fun time with my best friend and I but some tips. Always carry a bit more money then what you think you need. The city is very pricey and you will be buying extra things like bottles of water. Take and wear walking shoes, we both learned that the hard way. Never take anything from street peddlers. They want money, all of them! Just keep walking. If you are smart and keep an eye on your items and phone you will have a good time.

    Insider Tip:Always read the subway map and carry it around. There are so many different lines on the same color. Its easy to get lost if your not sure. Another tip carry a water bottle and take a back pack, there are needed in NYC to survive. You will be walking alot.

    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!
