Midtown, New York City, New York State
5
8 reviews

Although it has many of Manhattan's signature monuments and is home to the theater district, Midtown's charm is overpowered by suits and concrete. See the monuments, grab a show, and go to the big name department stores but save your stomach and liver for the rest of the city.

    Upper East Side

    New York City, New York State, USA
    4
    6 reviews

    I frequent Upper East Side mainly for the museums: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and The Whitney Museum of American Art to name a few. These museums usually take up the major portion of my visit in the neighborhood. After a museum trip, I usually settle for a snack in a cafe or restaurant nearby, ...

    Murray Hill (Manhattan)

    New York City, New York State, USA
    3
    3 reviews

    One of the least interesting neighborhoods in the city. The Indian food here is good but there is little reason for tourists to visit. The atmosphere is suburban / middle American. A relatively convenient base with less expensive housing but offering very little of cultural interest.

    Lincoln Center is the where art and fashion meet. If you are interested in seeing Opera,Ballet or the Symphony this is where you will come. If you're a Fashionista then Fashion Week (held in February and September) is where you will need to be.

    Lower East Side

    New York City, New York State, USA
    4.5
    39 reviews

    The Lower East Side is hipper than hip, despite its roots as an Eastern-European and Jewish immigrant neighborhood. A few remnants of such culture remain, like Guss' Pickles, but the neighborhood has been mostly taken over by places like 'inoteca and fancy diners. Which, if you have a few bucks in your pocket and a tolerance for skinny jeans, is ...

    Little Italy

    New York City, New York State, USA

    43 reviews

    Little Italy is very little and very Italy. If you want Italian cuisine, stop down to this small Italian neighborhood in New York. If you're feeling indecisive, it's conveniently located near Chinatown, so you can switch cuisines as well.

    SoHo

    New York City, New York State, USA
    4
    74 reviews

    So Ho (South of Houston) is one of New York's artier districts. Many writers, fashion designers and models live in this neighborhood. It's less crowded than Greenwich Village but there are a few great local restaurants and bars to check out: the Broome Street Pub and Provence among them.

    East Harlem (El Barrio / Spanish Harlem)

    New York City, New York State, USA

    I really enjoyed walking around East Harlem. The brightly colored murals, nearby scenic parks, and watching locals playing basketball make Spanish Harlem an interesting neighborhood worth checking out.

    Brooklyn Navy Yard

    Brooklyn, New York State, USA
    4
    3 reviews

    It's nice they're doing tours around this place now. In the winter, it's a bus-with-a-little-walking tour, which I took. In the summer, it's a bike tour, which I'd probably give another star to. It's interesting to see what's happening to the place, as it has for so long been this walled-off mystery. And the museum here is very nicely done--a ...

    Central Park

    New York City, New York State, USA
    5
    55 reviews

    Central Park is really big. I repeat: Central Park is really big. I suggest one view a map before thinking of traversing from the West to East side or vice versa. The roads curve in such a way that you could be wandering endlessly. Central Park is probably one of the most famous parks in the world. It's also quite ...

    Williamsburg

    Brooklyn, New York State, USA
    4.5
    21 reviews

    That Williamsburg is such a hip place shouldn't surprise me as it's the birthplace of the hipster. Friendly people, hip cafes, pretty clothes and a nice park make this area something straight out of a fancy-clothing-brand postcard.

    West Village

    New York City, New York State, USA
    5
    11 reviews

    West Village is undeniably my favorite neighborhood in New York City. I could never get bored to stroll the charming streets, gaze at the English-like architecture, stop for pastries and coffee at coffee-shops or explore through the countless boutiques. Can't think of a better walk for spring! It's pleasantly quiet, a rare thing to find in the bustling NYC.

    Chelsea

    12 reviews

    Chelsea’s Flower district, on 28th Street between 6th and 7th Avenue, is full of floral and green delights at wholesale prices. Florists swerve in and out of the many shops picking the freshest stems for their bouquets. It’s open to the public, though, so go early in the morning to get a good deal on cut flowers — a portable ...

    Chinatown

    New York City, New York State, USA
    4
    15 reviews

    Home to the largest enclave of Chinese people in the Western Hemisphere, Chinatown reflects supreme authenticity of the Chinese culture imported from the motherland miles away. Vibrant signs, store and restaurant fronts, and displays fill the streets luring locals and tourists to embrace some of China without a passport.

    Upper West Side

    New York City, New York State, USA
    4.5
    4 reviews

    Best Neighborhood in Manhattan! It has everything -- great restaurants, delis, bars. Tree-lined sidewalks, kid friendly space with people strolling about. Lots to do if you are a tourist but it does not feel touristy.

    Financial District

    New York City, New York State, USA
    4
    8 reviews

    Ground central for "Masters of the Universe" with inflated egos but still the heart and soul of the global financial system. A few nice monuments and some of the oldest architecture in the city. Less enjoyable than other parts of the city but still of tourist interest.

    Greenwich Village

    New York City, New York State, USA

    15 reviews

    I really like Greenwich Village. I spent quite a lot of time here during my most recent trip to NYC. It has a more neighborhood-y feel compared to most of New York City. Good restaurants and cute boutiques are all over this area!

    TriBeCa

    New York City, New York State, USA
    4.5
    6 reviews

    I live in the FIDI and work in Tribeca, with my commute being a whopping 15 minute walk across City Hall Park and over to Duane. Tribeca is full of history and character, and is home to everyone from old-timers who have been in their lofts from when the neighborhood had nothing, to Mariah Carey, Questlove, and Kimye. Good food, ...
