One of the best things about New York is that its five boroughs have such distinct personalities. Manhattan is distinguished by its glittering skyline, world-renowned tourist attractions, and high-end boutiques, restaurants and hotels. The Bronx is known for its street culture and hip-hop history as well as the Yankee Stadium. Meanwhile, Staten Island is noted for its ferry service and strong Italian influence.
Stay in Brooklyn or Queens
Brooklyn and Queens both lie across the East River on the western tip of Long Island. Both are famous for their distinct cultures and atmosphere. Brooklyn is known for Coney Island, Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and Williamsburg, a trendy young neighbourhood right on the river. Queens, meanwhile, is home to Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, the Queens Museum of Art, LaGuardia and JFK airports, and a variety of world cuisines that can be sampled in its Chinatown area and the Greek neighbourhood of Astoria.
Book a Room With La Quinta
Perhaps the best thing about staying outside of Manhattan is that accommodation can be a lot cheaper. La Quinta is one hotel chain that offers cheap, comfortable and well-appointed two star rooms at a number of locations around Brooklyn and Queens.
