Floating between the Hudson and East Rivers is New York City, New York. This place is unbelievable! Where else on earth can you ride the subway, lock eyes with Lady Liberty, and sing a song with the “Naked Cowboy” in Times Square, all before lunch? Book a stay at a Times Square hotel now and have your cultural perspective widened.
Broadway and Seventh Avenue
New York City stands alone in the eyes of the world, but within its confines is an intersection almost as famous as the city itself. You may think that “The Crossroads of the World” is located somewhere along the equator, but you’d be mistaken. It’s in Midtown Manhattan, and it’s called Times Square. Remember watching that giant disco ball fall from the heavens at midnight on December 31st? That takes place here. And you don’t have to worry about getting to the many attractions, because the hotels in Times Square are within walking distance of them all.
Would you like to escape the madness of Times Square for a bit? Head 12 miles north across the Harlem River and spend the day at the Bronx Zoo. Step into a fantasy land in the Butterfly Garden and be amused to no end at the Congo Gorilla Forest. If you’d rather be entertained by humans, go 6 miles north of Times Square to Haarlem and catch a show at the Apollo Theater. Music, comedy, and dancing shows are a staple at this historic venue. Can you afford all this? Sure you can. Check out the cheap hotels in NYC to save money for more city slicking.
