Jun 5, 2012 — Although New York can be a little overwhelming to the senses – and especially to the wallet – it’s still one of the most global and awe-inspiring places you’ll ever encounter.
In Midtown, the neon lights are bright on Broadway, where there’s always a play or musical worth seeing, while uptown’s Rockefeller Center and Central Park are seasonal treasures for ice skating or sunbathing. On top of that, there always seems to be a festival, parade, or market going on in one neighborhood or another, which are great ways to experience and celebrate the city’s cultural diversity.
At night, the city is alive with all sorts of ethnic drinking scenes, from Japanese sake joints and wild Cuban salsa spots to gypsy dancing dens – it’s almost like visiting a different country every night of the week!
Granted, New York is an expensive place, but with the subway there to whisk you around, you can stamp your passport with every neighborhood without breaking the bank.
