A list of hotels and restaurants in New Yorkers’ favorite neighborhoods can be tricky to come by, especially if you’re a new traveler.
A guide to the best and worst spots to stay in NYC is available here, but we’ll be sticking to the city’s nicer neighborhoods.
Below are some of the best spots to spend your next weekend in NYC.
We’ll start with the boroughs of Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan and Brooklyn Park, but also the Bronx, Staten Island and Queens boroughs.
The Brooklyn boroughs are home to a wide variety of restaurants, bars, coffee shops and more, but their overall quality of life is the least of their concerns.
They tend to have a lot of older residents who don’t spend much time on the town, and many restaurants are a bit older than their counterparts in the rest of the city.
The area around the Grand Central Station is generally pretty cool and is home to many trendy restaurants, and a lot more affordable options.
While Brooklyn has a few great hotels and bars, they’re mostly clustered around the subway station.
There are several popular places to grab a bite and grab a drink in the borough’s pricier areas.
We also found that Brooklyn’s best restaurants are the ones you’ll most likely visit for lunch.
In the warmer months, you can also find some of NYC’s best dive bars and hipster hangouts.
The most popular spots to visit are The Bowery, where you can find plenty of great food, and The West Village, where Brooklyn has its own distinct culture and is known for its eclectic cuisine.
If you want a unique and trendy experience, you should definitely try the popular spots in the Central Park neighborhood.
Other popular areas to stay during your stay are The Bronx, West Village and the Chelsea neighborhood, and you can even take a short stroll down the Brooklyn waterfront to check out the famous Biltmore Estate or the New York Botanical Garden.
New York’s best bars and restaurants are clustered around its subway station, so it’s best to take a quick trip there if you can.
And, if you want to try something a little more adventurous, you might want to head to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, which offers a wide range of outdoor dining experiences.
