New York is famous for many things: its food, people, art, and stunning skyline, as well as the vastly differing identities of its many neighbourhoods. Though lots of people will want to stay right in the heart of Midtown Manhattan, close to Broadway or Grand Central, there’s a lot to be said for getting out of the centre and heading to one of New York’s more quiet areas.
Visit Central Park and the Upper East Side
Head northeast from Midtown Manhattan and you’ll come to the Upper East Side, the chic neighbourhood that runs between the East River and Central Park. Away from the rush and bustle of central Manhattan, this area has excellent transport links to other parts of the city and is home to numerous upscale restaurants, bars and hotels.
