New York City Travel Guide: 15,948 reviews and 32,179 photos

Long ago but not far away

I'm originally from New York. Living in Boston, it's easy to go down and visit. To me, going to NYC is always fun but it's more like falling back into the attitude you have there and just enjoying the unpredictability of the place! It's never dull.

UPDATE: Went back down to NYC in October 2015 for a mini-family reunion. More to come...

Your Own Thing

Although I did hit some touristy spots on my last trip, what I prefer to do in New York City is to walk around, check out the architecture, the people, and feel the vibe.

Unexpected Pleasures

It's always nice to encounter some beautiful public art, isn't it?

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:New Yorkers are awesome
  • Cons:Sometimes too much of everything can be too much
  • In a nutshell:It always feel like going home....

    Excellent and very helpful info, will be going to NYC for the first time next week, staying right in mid-town Manhattan, I love how charismatic and talkative every New Yorker I've ever met has been !

    We go to Manhatten in 6 weeks. Thanks for the great pictures and comments. I also liked Boston very much when I was there a while ago.

    We enjoyed your NYC pages! I completely agree about Times Square. Been to the Frick and thought I was amazing. Safe travels from traveling Canadians!

    I love your picture of Madame Tussaud's from the hotel window. That's a great shot :)

    Thanks for the excellent restaurant/nightlife tips! I'll be sure to check out Flor de Mayo and Gotham Comedy Club :-) I like your writing style, it's fun & to the point. And I always appreciate suggestions from former New Yorkers! :-) Happy new year!
