NYC nah!

I've visited NYC a couple of time with kids. We went to see Statue of Liberty, Times Square, Rockefeller, Central Park, watch the Christmas Parade and the tree lighting. It was ok. Don't recommend it especially if you have young ones.
Took the subway, really gross. Poop it the elevators, i had to use stairs and carry my strollers. NewYorkers can be really nasty. Scary experience for my kids.
Traffic is terrible, same with parking. You have to do lots of walking.

Visited twice & loved it

I've visited twice. The first time was many yrs ago for (Labour Day) Carnival, an amazing experience to participate in. Stayed in Brooklyn & did some bargain shopping there, and went to Harlem for an incredible soul food brunch.
My husband & I went last year during our (Canadian) Thanksgiving weekend. Some highlights were walking the Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan Bridge; eating & bargain shopping in Chinatown; people watching in Central Park; street eats & bodega beers in Spanish Harlem; the ferry ride to see Lady Liberty. Loved the weather, some 25° afternoons. Stayed in NJ, a short bus ride away. Enjoyed it all, and recommend it.

NYC

I visited New York on many occasions during many years. I love everything about it.

My only dislike is that New Yorkers are not friendly nor willing to take the time to help out a tourist.

Great experiences

I've had great experiences in NYC.


Once, when I was standing on the sidewalk with luggage near Penn Station, two separate people who looked like they were on their way to work with their suits and briefcases stopped to ask if I need directions.


Not every moment is wonderful but definitely enjoyable and always lots to see. Are you planning a trip? Post if you need advice!

Had a great time

I was there four years ago for a week and had a great time. We have friends in Brooklyn and did a bunch of the usual tourists things, Empire State Building, 30 Rock, Central Park. My hubby is an urban planner so we also just walked around a bunch of areas. I found everyone we met to be friendly. I think it depends on the areas and times you go, but I didn’t find it to be as crowded or chaotic as it seems in movies and tv.

Love NYC - been there many times for work and pleasure. Planning to stay in Brooklyn next time so that I can explore the neighbourhoods there. There’s always something new and different to discover in New York!

Love it!

NYC is one of my favourite places I've ever visited. I've been there 3 times! There is just so much to do at all hours of the day, and it's such an exciting environment. I'm a huge musical theatre fan, so of course I love Broadway. My dream is to be able to live in New York some day!
