When you think of New York City, one thinks of the five boroughs: Brooklyn, Bronx, Manhatten, Queens, and Staten Island. The population of the five boroughs is over eight million people, while Manhatten has about a million and a half residents. Interestingly enough, the Bronx is the only part of the mainland in New York City. The other four boroughs are islands.Recommended for:

New York City is one of my favorite places on earth. It has everything...great food, diverse culture, music, clubs, and lots if history. Times Square is too much for me ...every American stereotype brought to life...but everything else is 5 stars!Recommended for:

I've been to London and Tokyo but nothing beats New York! I've got to admit, I'm a bit biased considering I grew up just outside of the city and my family is from Brooklyn. I remember as a kid going into the city and seeing the tourists looking up at the buildings in such awe and thinking "haven't these people ever seen a city before?" It wasn't until later when I traveled to other cities that I appreciated how incredibly impressive my city was and is.Recommended for:

I can't believe anyone would rate New York less than a 5. This is certainly one of the greatest cities on planet Earth. Not everyone can handle it but everyone should be able to find something here that they really like!
Don't stay in Times Square. Get out and explore. The people are much friendlier than their reputation. The city is very easy to navigate. With some of the lowest crime rates in the city's history, there is very little to fear other than falling in love.Recommended for:

Born In Brazil I rate NYC 3 for the fact I had lived there for 5 years at Trump Tower
People said This is certainly one of the greatest cities on planet Earth , But I have to disagree with that , Maybe 30 years ago ! No now .Recommended for:

I live about 40- and hour away, not a big deal because I never really get to go there, Theirs something for everyone to do like see musicals, go to parks, shopping and having fun, if you can go you'll never forgot, and if you can I'd stay a few days I would if I could ;)Recommended for:

I was born in NY but moved at an early age. My sis still lives in Brooklyn and I go back and visit every now and then. The city is so large and you will never be bored living here. I really like all the iconic structures- I went to the top of the empire state building, walked time square, and hung out in central park to name a few. A must visit (top 5 places to visit in the US).Recommended for:

A bustling, throbbing, racing, steaming concrete jungle filled with exuberance, adrenaline, and life. Music, theater, art, and drama flood the streets as humans from all walks of life mingle over coffee, business deals, and walks in the park. New York City is probably the most incredible city I've ever visited, filled with enough to see, do, hear, taste, and touch to keep you busy the rest of your years. Jump on this wild ride and experience the Big Apple - you haven't lived until you've done so.Recommended for:

New york City is the ultimate destination and absolutely nothing in the world comes close! There are more great restaurants and hotels in this city then you will ever be able to experience in a lifetime. It was on my bucket list and I am so very glad for all of the unique travel experiences this amazing city has given me.Recommended for:

While other cities are bigger or more historic, New York City personifies what it means to be a CITY. It's loud, it's aggressive, it's in your face and yet it's also one of the most cosmopolitan and diverse cities in the world cutting across a wide swath of ethnic groups, religions, and nationalities. It's one of the few places in the world where you'll see a hipster, yuppie, hippie, and whatever existing stereotype strolling along the same street. While it can be an exhausting city to live, it is one of the most exciting cities to visit in the world. Thus, if you're coming to the US, make sure you make a visit to New York.Recommended for:

just very nice to drive around and from everywhere on the other side, see the skyline, you'll have to watch that you do not enter scary neighborhoods, go to see the waterfronts across the city...perfect to watch the skyline

Reviewing New York City is a bit like reviewing your mother; it's not just a place, it's family. I grew up in the tristate area and lived on the upper west side for two years. Manhattan is as close as you'll ever get to Europe. Eight million people of different backgrounds thrown together like soldiers in a war for progress. The city parties like no other, bleeds Yankee blue, dresses to kill and makes an awful racket. From the Met, to the Bow Bridge to the Brooklyn Bridge, there's great beauty lurking. Famous faces emerge from the crowd and are gone a second later. New York is more than a place, it's the sun-the center of everything.Recommended for:

A Fantastic City, one of a Kind- There is a benchmark difference pre and post 911.
The city is at its all time safest in the history of NYC. I will be honest about the culture. It seems to have changed, most of the cottage vendors are getting killed by the high rents that the big corp. venders can handle. The West village has lost a lot of its creative edge. The days of rough art have come to a new corp. reality. It is still in the process of forming it self. We all have to wait and see how this new world will turn out. Over all the city is still a global vortex of international culture and people from all over the world. I believe the rest of the world should look at our city as an example of how so many different ethnic backgrounds can live together in peace.

Don't loose the opportunity to have a panoramic view of the city from Brooklyn Heights. Whenever go to Brooklyn, choose to do it by walking across the bridge, it's awesome.
