A Guide to New York Landmarks for First Time Visitors

Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

The big apple. The city that never sleeps. The capital of the world. From the bright lights of Broadway to the top of the Empire State Building, there is a lot to see and do in New York City! Deciding on a list of must-see’s will help you make the most out of any trip. For first-time visitors, here are a few standard landmark spots not to be missed!

Central Park:

Stepping out the door of most hotels will place you square in the midst of the hustle and bustle of New York City. Always remember, despite the giant skyscraper buildings and never ending parade of honking taxicabs, fresh air and green grass are not far away. Central Park, one of the city’s best-known landmarks, is easily reached from most New York hotels. While some spots might be familiar from movies (Breakfast at Tiffany’s) and TV shows (Friends), there are a few areas that only the insiders frequent.

The Alice in Wonderland statue, based on the famed children’s story, is a favorite spot of many of the city’s children. Alice, The Mad Hatter, The Cheshire Cat and, of course, The White Rabbit, are all cast in bronze in this whimsical statue. Some say that rubbing The White Rabbit or the toadstool Alice sits on can bring good luck, so be sure to touch the statue before heading to your next destination.

Another local favorite, the Shakespeare Garden, is a true must-see for any Bard buff. The Garden, originally planted in 1916, is full of plants mentioned in Shakespeare’s work. Over the years, the garden fell into disrepair, but flourished again in the late 80′s when Central Park patrons restored it. While many have enjoyed saying or reading the interesting names of plants from Shakespeare’s times, few would be able to identify wormwood, quince, or cowslip if it were in the lobby of the Manhattan hotel in which they were staying. To find out exactly what these and other exotic sounding plants actually look like, make sure this colorful garden makes it onto the agenda.

Radio City Music Hall:

Next up, the grandest theater in the world! Radio City Music Hall, long a favorite suggestion of New York City travel experts, is actually the largest indoor theater in existence, with a marquee the size of a full city block! Both live-theater and movie fans are sure to be enthralled by the gorgeous theater that was designed so that there are no “bad seats.”

Famous movies such as White Christmas, National Velvet, and Breakfast at Tiffany’s premiered here; and stars like Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles and Liza Minnelli, among others, have performed here. During the holiday season, the Christmas Spectacular features the Radio City Rockettes, whose high, choreographed kicks have made history. True fans will insist on a behind-the-scenes tour before making their way back to their hotel. Tours are available daily, and downtown hotel concierges may have discounted ticket coupons.

For many traveling to New York, they want the excitement of travel combined with the convenience of hotel location. Remember, there are many New York luxury hotel options available. Make sure your hotel is based around your itinerary and personal style. If you are spending most of your time in the theaters around Broadway, then consider searching for boutique New York Broadway hotels among other boutique hotel room options.

Travel Tips For New York City

Wednesday, September 5th, 2012

family acommodation new yorkNew York, New York – so good they named it twice – is one of the most fascinating, exciting and cultural cities in the world. Within the 20 square miles that comprise Manhattan can be found some of the world’s greatest museums, shops and restaurants, as well as a spectacular skyline that’s known the world over.

You could spend a lifetime in New York without experiencing everything fully. Some of the sights that any first time visitor to New York must see include the Empire State Building – for many years the world’s tallest building – the immigration museum at Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, Times Square and the United Nations Building.

One of the joys of visiting the city is simply to wander through the different and varied neighborhoods – Greenwich Village, Chinatown, the Theater District, Harlem and Little Italy. The outlying borough of Brooklyn has several attractions including the botanical gardens and the famous amusement park at Coney Island.

One of the biggest attractions is the city’s diversity – in New York you can hear virtually any language spoken and dine in a different ethnic restaurant every night for a month. Apart from Manhattan, the borough of Queens is also well known for its wide selection of foreign restaurants.

Shopping in New York is equally satisfying, offering world class department stores with such famous names as Bergdorf Goodman and Bloomingdales. At the other end of the shopping spectrum are street markets, designer boutiques and specialty stores.

New York has some of the greatest museums in the world – several conveniently located together at the edge of Central Park. The Metropolitan Museum of Art attracts more visitors than any other place in the city and offers everything from Egyptian mummies to 20th century masterpieces.

On the other hand the city has over 50 smaller but fascinating museums dedicated to such diverse subjects as firefighting, tenement living and the history of finance. Children are not forgotten – there are several museums aimed at children as well as the ever popular Bronx Zoo with its more than 4,000 animals.

Since the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001, one of New York’s biggest attractions has been the remains of the World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan. More than a tourist attraction, to many it’s a site of pilgrimage and a poignant reminder of the events of that day.

Hotels with family rooms and connecting rooms to sleep 5, 6, 7 or more in New York City!

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

If your looking for hotels with family rooms in New York City there are plenty to go around if you are a family of 4 but if you have more than 2 kids you will struggle to find a family room or connecting rooms that will sleep your family of 5, 6, 7 or more!

I have scoured the net to find these elusive rooms and have managed to locate 14 (to date) that will sleep a family of 5 or more.  If your looking for a cheap, budget hotel in New York,  the cheapest I have come across are the Radio City apartments in  Mid-Town Manhattan just steps from Rockefeller Center and Times Square from just $165 per night for a family of 5 or the Cosmopolitan Hotel from $179. 

If you prefer luxurious hotels then the New York Marriott East Side which has had a $24 million guest room renovation can sleep a family of 5 in one of their junior suites.  

If it’s space your after then the Hotel 309 can sleep up to 7 in their 2 bedroom suites from the bargain price of  $189!!

Whatever you plan to do in New York City, you are sure to find a hotel to accommodate your big family at www.roomfor5.co.uk
