Things to See in Manhattan
Before choosing a hotel, decide where you want to stay within New York. Most travellers aim for Times Square because it is near Broadway and a few subway stops from Central Park and southern Manhattan. Manhattan is easy to navigate because most numbered streets (52nd Street, etc.) run east or west and named streets (Park Avenue, etc.) run north or south.
If you're travelling with children, take time to visit the Times Square Toys R Us (ToysRUsinc.com/about-us/Times-Square) in Manhattan. The huge store features a life-size, two-storey Barbie townhouse, a life-size robotic T-Rex and a large indoor Ferris wheel. Times Square is home to dozens of hotels and very close to Broadway.
Central Park (centralparknyc.org) and the Central Park Zoo are also popular with all ages. Central Park Zoo suits children, while the a carriage ride is the perfect attraction for couples. Central Park is in the northern area of Manhattan and close to hotels like Helmsley Park Lane Hotel.
The former World Trade Center buildings are in the southern end of Manhattan. At the time of this writing, a new tower is under construction. Wall Street is also in the southern section.
A few blocks south of Times Square, the Empire State Building (esbnyc.com) offers incredible views of all of Manhattan. A high-speed elevator brings travellers to the top of the building where you go outside to take pictures or to view the city from behind a safety fence.
