Oh lucky you, Carole! I wish I was going too! We stayed at The Edison (I think it is called) in Manhattan, a good middle of the road Hotel (art deco), reasonable price and in the middle of everything. A tour bus is the very best way to see New York, visit Chinatown, 5th Avenue, travel by subway, take the Staten Island ferry and visit Ellis Island, see a Broadway show, take a helicopter ride round Manhatten...fabulous but a bit expensive, and of course, go shopping:-)), and so much more! I bought The Lonely Planet Guide and it was great....BC XX

Hi All

We're thinking of going to New York and would welcome advice on hotels, sightseeing etc. Going between Christmas and New Year, hopefully!
