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.

One of the most famous and recognizable spots on planet earth. Standing there in the center of the square I can't help but think how many people have passed through that one little space and how many eyes have seen it in movies and tv shows. It feels as though you are standing at the center of the universe!

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, ...

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.

The Lower East Side is located in the southeastern area of Manhattan. It's a neat area with lots of cool shops, consignment boutiques, and restaurants. It's also a cool area to check out New York's Little Tokyo neighborhood, with sushi bars and hip second hand stores. Plus, one of my favorite restaurants, Max's Restaurant, is here!

I am truly impressed by the Astoria region of Queens. There are plenty of stores with both unique trendy finds and brand name fashionable designs, and an array of cafes and restaurants that reflect diverse international tastes. At night, the streets light up and display a different type of setting where people dress up in their stylish recently purchased attire ...

Excellent Modern Mexican Cuisine, primarily seafood , but not exclusively and plenty of non seafood to choose from. The tacos here are awesome and better then most you're going to find. The scallops and tuna are top notch. Very good margaritas from basic flavors to some great variations like the smokey spicy one.

I loved hanging out in the East Village when I was a New Yorker, a little too much for the good of my wallet. Be that as it may, I have fond memories of my twenties spent in the various bars and restaurants of this New York neighborhood, bemoaning the days when the East Village was REALLY cool, which was, ...

This is one of the best bars I've been to in NY thus far. Using only the freshest ingredients artfully mixed together the cocktails are a step above the rest. The dim interior is quite romantic. Don't be fooled but it's outward appearance - once you enter you'll be transported into another realm. Pro tip: happy hour all night on ...

The original hipster land, Williamsburg personifies the expensive yet still somehow grimy feeling that prevails in some gentrified neighborhoods. However, you're sure to find delicious food and fun, creative bars.

Rowing, jogging, biking, hiking, sunbathing, softball playing, and most obvious .... Sight seeing. This park has it all.

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.

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.

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.

Chelsea is the unofficial art district of New York thanks to the assortment of different art galleries. It is said there are 370 art galleries in West Chelsea alone. Thus, if you're a fan of contemporary art, it's worth the trek to check out the art scene here.

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.
