I love Soho to shop! it's really nice and you can find really expensive but also medium prices clothing. You should also check out Century 21 in the financial district the address is 22 Cortlandt Street New York, NY 10007, it's right outside the R train subway stop.

Everytjing about NYC is magical!
If you are planning NYC consider this tip to save money: Take the subway to Bowling Green or South Ferry and hop on a ferry for a free ride across New York Harbor. The boats run 24 hours a day and the rides are FREE. You get to take some great photos as the boat passes the Statue of Liberty and the Manhattan's famous skyline.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:

I love this city! There is something to do/eat/see for everyone that visits the city. As a tourist, this is a city filled with culture, history and fun! You don't need a car to get around because the subway system is convenient and cheap. People aren't very friendly and are very fast walkers, but you already know that about NYC. The food scene here is world-class and internationally-recognized. If you love to shop, then you've also come to one of the fashion cities in the world. Be prepared to fall in love with the city that never sleeps!Recommended for:

New York is so much more than just Manhatten... By all means see and do everything there is to do on this strip of activity, but don't neglect the rest of the state. Even if you just pop out to Brooklyn or out to some of the more suburban areas, it will give you a much more rounded feel of what this diverse state has to offer.Recommended for:

All the people should to go to NEW YORK CITY . A wonderful cosmopolitan place for people that like music, culture, architecture and off course shopping!
I really love NY and when I saw the city for the first time I dreamed wanted to live there!
People must go to NY for all the seasons and always through the years!

Nowhere compares to New York, the bright lights, the readily available yellow taxis, the incredible dining and arts scenes, and seemingly endless supply of local culture. Yet just a 5 foot rise in sea levels could submerge most of Manhattan...and with up to 8 inches possible in the next ten years, best to enjoy the Big Apple now!Recommended for:

The city that never sleeps! There is nothing you can't do! You can even go shopping at 2 am! Great food everywhere. Lots of museums and history to visit. At night there is plenty of bars and clubs to hang out at. The best part of NYC Is perhaps Broadway. During the day there is a raffle where you can win Broadway tickets to a play. All you need is to walk around and people will hand you a flier with a number for the ruffle. New Jersey is extremely closed so it's worth to visit.

It's New York City!!! It's amazing! This city has something for everyone and the possibilities are endless. If you are visiting New York for the first time, definitely do see the sights you care most about seeing, eat fantastic food and absolutely be sure to go to at least one of the city's utterly fabulous museums-(my top four are the Guggenheim, the frick, moma and the met). No matter what else you do while visiting New York, absolutely leave time to wander and explore-- the greatest New York places are the ones you make your own!Recommended for:

Truly one of a kind. New York City is a reflection of innovative minds and historical layers of diligent work. There is something for everyone here in regards to dining, things to see and do, and shopping. As Alicia Keys says, "These streets will make you feel brand new, big lights will inspire you."Recommended for:

The “Big Apple” is truly a unique metropolis. The financial capital and arguably the cultural capital of the United States, New York was founded as New Amsterdam by the Dutch in 1624, and today has a population of 8 million strong in its five boroughs. Landmarks like the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building are recognized throughout the globe, while the stocks traded on Wall Street influence bank accounts all over the world. The numbered streets and subway system make getting around relatively easy, and there is always the option of hailing one of the yellow cabs which crowd the streets (few New Yorkers drive). The arts and culture are well represented at museums like the Guggenheim, Metropolitan Museum of Art, and MOMA, with the ballet, symphony and opera seasons at Lincoln Center are top notch. Traces of the turn of the century waves of immigration are still visible on the Lower East Side, a short walk from the deisgner shops in SOHO. One mustn’t forget the impeccably designed Central Park (“Manhattan’s backyard”), the elegance of Grand Central Terminal, or the historic jazz bars of Harlem-and that’s just a beginner’s guide. One of the major icons of New York, the twin towers at the World Trade Center, were destroyed on September 11, 2001. You’ll find food from all over the world from Koreatown to Chinatown to steakhouses and hot dog carts. Immortalized in countless songs and movies, the lure of New York is perhaps best expressed by E.B. White, who wrote, “No one should come to New York to live unless he is willing to be lucky.”Recommended for:

Coming for the New York area when I am traveling I meet people all over the world who long for visit the Big Apple. I always tell them the best time of year to visit the city is in the Christmas season! I know it is one of the most popular times for tourists but it really is the best time to see the city (from Thanksgiving through New Years)!Recommended for:

Manhattan is beautiful, lively and it makes you feel so tiny but at the sane time that you have the world at your feet. It's made up of an unique mixture of cultures and people that you rarely see anywhere else in the world.Recommended for:

I absolutely love New York City! There is always something interesting to do, day or night. There are hundreds of delicious restaurants to try out, and even a slice of pizza at Joe's is delicious. The Met is great to visit, and shopping in SOHO, though dangerous on the wallet, is fun!

I've been here for almost a month staying at the Lower East Side, best neighbourhood ever. If you are interested in art and night life this part of the city has a lot to offer, not to mention the proximity to the Soho and Williamsburg through the bridge. I've really enjoyed my time at NYC, hope to visit it again soon.

There are three New Yorks: the one that tourists visit, the one where people work, and the one where people live. I've done all three, and I still think this is the greatest city in the world. It's also pretty dirty, but you tolerate it for all the people who come to New York and feed off its energy.

The city that never sleeps. Manhattan is one of those cities that would infect you with its spirit and before you know it, you are fully immersed in the city's grandeur. Some say there are more happenings in Manhattan than any other city in the world. The home of the world famous Time Square, Big Apple, Broadway theater district, Fifth avenue, Metropolitan museum, there is little chance you would run out of stuff to do. Manhattan also boasts some of the best restaurants from the world's cuisines, whether it's Japanese or Malaysian, French or Italian.Recommended for:
