New York City Neighborhood Write-Ups
Everyone knows New York City's got something for everyone. The sheer breadth of possibilities, though, can make figuring out where to base yourself a bit befuddling. We've come to the rescue with this handy neighborhood round-up, sourced directly from HomeAway travelers who have already done the footwork for you! After all, what better way is there to find out where to stay in New York than to hear from newly minted experts? With that in mind, we've rounded up some neighborhood-specific recommendations from HomeAway travelers:
About the East Village
"The east village is Manhattan's most "bohemian" (for lack of better word) and eclectic neighborhood and the apartment is situated in the heart of it - great local parks, restaurants, bars and cafes (sushi, mex, tai, etc, etc.), clubs, landmark oddity stores, colorful characters walking the streets and what have you."
"Easy subway access, tons of restaurants and shops. Near both Irving Plaza and Webster Hall (across the street!) if you like good live music."
About the Upper West Side
"The location is prime with easy access to several subway lines and the cross-town bus. The upper west side neighbor is full of great restaurants and shops."
"The upper west side is a great place to stay as it is a little out of the hustle and bustle of midtown and the Times Square area."
About Midtown Manhattan
"A bunch of cool restaurants, pizza-places, coffee- and breakfast-places, and small supermarkets are right around the corner on 9th or 10th Av."
"A good neighborhood that was safe, had lots of shops and restaurants...The amount of restaurants in Little Italy was amazing."
"The neighbourhood, Park Slope, is a very nice with lots of shops and restaurants on 5th and 7 ave."
"We walked across the Brooklyn Bridge! Manhattan was easy to get to and we had some great days there but we loved coming back to Brooklyn."
