Preparing to Visit the City: A Need-to-Know Guide

What Is There to Do in New York City?

The possibilities are endless! Whether your interest is theater, fine dining, clubbing, cruising, museum-hopping, or shopping, you can find it all in New York City. It's called the city that never sleeps because the action never stops! No matter the hour, you can find something fun and exciting to do.

What Is Considered Uptown New York?

Definitions for uptown are approximate (and sometimes cause arguments among native New Yorkers), but generally, Uptown Manhattan is the area above 59th Street.

Is Harlem Considered Uptown?

While Harlem is technically "uptown" of 59th Street, this neighborhood, along with others like Washington Heights and Inwood, are considered by most to be a distinct area called Upper Manhattan.

Is Brooklyn Uptown or Downtown?

We could consider Brooklyn to be downtown, since you would need to board a downtown train, headed south, to get there.

Is New York City Safe?

Yes: FBI data labels New York City as the safest big city in the U.S. Just be aware of your surroundings and don't leave bags and wallets exposed to thieves and you're like to have a fun and safe visit to New York City.

When Should I Visit New York City?

That depends on your interests. The largest crowds of tourists appear during the summer and around the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. There are a lot of unique events happening during those times! But if you're seeking out moderate weather and smaller crowds, visit in the spring or fall.

What Should I Book in Advance in New York City?

New York is full of tourists who have the same destinations on their lists as you do, so there are lot of attractions that should be booked in advance to make sure you don't miss out. Definitely book tickets to a Broadway show in advance, and at more popular restaurants, you should make reservations, especially on the weekends. If you want to take in the view at an observatory like the top of the Empire State Building or Top of the Rock, definitely buy tickets in advance so you can skip the lines. Some museums, like the Tenement Museum, only allow a small number of visitors per day; any attraction with limited space or seating should be booked in advance.

What Is the Nickname of New York City?

New York City goes by all kinds of nicknames besides just NYC. You're most likely to hear it called the Big Apple, Gotham, the city that never sleeps, and maybe even the center of the universe. (New Yorkers are a humble bunch, in case you couldn't tell.)
