New York City has something to offer just about anyone, whether your taste is the obscure and eclectic or classic, apple pie-and-baseball Americana. The five boroughs feature five distinct characters. A quick glance reveals the bustle and sophistication of Manhattan, fire-fighters and policemen living the family life in Staten Island, a tough urban character and baseball in the Bronx, Greek and Hispanic neighborhoods of Queens, and the cheeky hipsters, flourishing art scene, and brownstones in Brooklyn. Take the time to look a little deeper and the subtleties of each borough shine even brighter...whether you prefer a Russian feast in Brooklyn's Brighton Beach followed by a dip in the sea at Coney Island, or an authentic Chinese meal in ...

Flushing, Queens, the tastes and sounds of the world are quite literally at your fingertips for the price of a round-trip subway fare.
New York is blessed with four unique seasons. Temperate travelers are advised to visit in the autumn or spring; winters here are freezing cold, and summer is extremely hot. If you're happy to bundle up, however, the Christmas season is well known for its magical lights and oversized tree at Rockefeller Center, while if you're happy to sweat it out, summer brings numerous outdoor concerts and often free performances. Autumn is crisp and cool, with events like Fashion Week bringing some glamour to the city, and the Spring is also a great time to visit, with sidewalk tables popping up at practically every restaurant, and outdoor sites to appreciate from the High Line park to cherry blossoms at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden.

Local from Bronx

This city has the most fake and soulless people I have ever experienced. They have no manners or respect. Nor do they have any type of personality.

The big Apple! The most electrifying city in the world! Always always on the go! Not a place for a faint hearted!

I cannot say I fall in love with great New York. This city is definitely huge with a lot of options, but people looks bored, unfriendly and tired and it's so dirty that I had the chance to see several cockroaches and even rat. Sorry NY maybe next time...

What to say about one of the world's most iconic cities, other than it offers something for virtually everyone.
