Restaurants and Eating Out
New York City has so many restaurants, take aways etc… it’s no wonder New Yorkers eat out so much!
New York City has thousands of hotels and accommodation but that doesn’t mean it’s full of cheap hotels. However you can get cheap deals if you book early or if you risk it and book [keyword] last minute. Other ways to get [keyword] is to try and book in the less popular New York City spots. Less touristy areas (but just as good) areas are Gramercy, the Lower East Side, the Upper West Side, Brooklyn.
Most of the big bars and clubs are all in the Meatpacking District. Again as with everything in New York City there will be a bar or nightclub that will cater to taste of music.
Staying Safe in New York City
New York City is believed to be a very dangerous city, however New York City is statistically the safest large city in the United States. The crime rate per person is actually lower than the national average and the crime rate of many small towns.
The most common crime against tourists is bag snatching. Never let go of your bag, especially in the subway but also when eating at a restaurant. Take special care if sitting outdoors or in a crowded self service restaurant. Leave your passport and valuables in a hotel safe or hidden in your suitcase, and don't flaunt a wad of money around for everyone to see.
If you think you have wandered into a dangerous area, just hop in a cab, or into the nearest subway station and go elsewhere. If a subway platform is deserted, stay within sight of the station agent.
Despite the stereotypes, many New Yorkers are nice people and don't mind giving directions (if they have the time), so don't be afraid to ask! If you ever get into trouble, approach the nearest police officer. You'll find them to be friendly, polite, and very helpful.
