This is my least favorite city to visit because of the lack of disability accessibility. If you have not been here once then you need to at least come and visit.

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.

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.

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:Business Travelers

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 ;)

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).

Always a fun visit, whether you're here for a day or a month! The city is exciting and vibrant at all times of the year, and there is something for everyone to enjoy here!

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:Trendsters
