New York, United States travel tips

Top Tips view all
1 Get out and walk around. New York is a remarkably safe city for its size, and walking the city's neighborhoods is one of the best ways to see the Big Apple.
2 If you are religious, then you'd like to know that the Jewish population in NYC is the largest in the world next to Israel.
3 Comfortable walking shoes are a must. Be willing to sacrifice fashion for comfort, because you're going to do a LOT of walking in New York. Your feet will thank you.
4 If you want to see a Broadway show, but don't want to shell out the big bucks, check out the TKTS Discount Booth on the day you'd like to see a show. There's one in Times Square, but you'll find that the one at the South St. Seaport location is usually less crowded, and it offers you the option of buying tickets the day before a performance.
5 If you're considering staying in Midtown, consider Hell's Kitchen. It's much safer than the name implies and its grittiness is largely in the past. It's a safe--and cheaper--alternative to some of the pricier hotels in Midtown, but will still have you in easy walking distance of Times Square.
6 Experience wonderful music and hilarious stories at the Carnegie Hall museum tour.
7 It's best to use tour guides when traveling as they are usually very knowledgeable.
8 Tuesdays to Saturdays are the best days to see the most NYC attractions as they are usually closed on Sunday and Monday.
9 Walking the streets of New York which are always abuzz with activities require wearing comfortable shoes.
10 Even if you're not catching a train, go see Grand Central Station. It's one of the city's most beautiful buildings. Where else can you see constellations painted on the ceiling?
