re: best area to stay New York City
I’m partial to Lucali. But you’re gonna have to wait in line and it’s cash only

Good pizza ain’t hard to find though

Midtown is probably your best bet. It's pretty centrally located to the normal Manhattan things to see and do. If you want to be closer to Brooklyn, Tribeca, Soho, or Lower Manhattan. It's really not that difficult yo get to Brooklyn from Midtown though.


Except Midtown will drive you crazy with the effing crowds. We have an office there and I can be there for about 2 days and I'm ready to hip check people.

That said, it is centrally located, you're close to MSG and the Empire State Building...but there are a lot of better neighborhoods.

re: best area to stay New York City
Long Island city merits consideration if on a budget and you don’t want your hotel in the middle of all the crowds.

Fair point, but is it really a problem on a long weekend? We haven't stayed in Midtown in a while, so not sure. I only mentioned it for its convenience.

I prefer Soho or Chelsea.

If you are going in the summer, sans Memorial or 4th, everyone leaves the city on the weekend

It's probably fine for that. Soho and Chelsea are really nice too.

Like many ITT I love Brooklyn, but in terms of what a tourist would be visiting, there's not a lot over there. Somewhere in Manhattan is probably the right play, and then if you want to bounce over to Brooklyn for an afternoon you can pretty easily do so.

re: best area to stay New York City
In Manhattan I would stay on central park or down by gramercy/union sq/madison. Soho/Chelsea would be fine too but its more boutique there.

Brooklyn has much less hotel options, you are probably looking at an airbnb.

Williamsburg/Greenpoint has some boutique hotel options that are nice and $$$ (wythe, hoxton, william vale). The only other hotel I might consider staying at would be the marriott at brooklyn bridge but its nothing great.

I don't see any reason to stay in times sq. "convenience" is not a reason, everywhere is generally convenient.

Head to the Village; if you want an entire pizza, go to John's of Bleecker; if you want slices, hit Bleecker Street Pizza.

central park


I stayed at the hyatt on 57th St. right by central park last time I went, and I used the subway to get all over town very easily.

My cousin that lives in New York for a long time said Joe’s is the best.
