New York City perpetually shows up as one of the most expensive cities to live in from around the world, needless to say it isn’t all that much less expensive if you’re thinking about visiting, but yes it is one of the all time great metropolis’ so if you haven’t yet been, or thinking of making a return, watch your pocketbook – not because there’s any crime anymore but more because you might very well go home broke.
The best tip that we can give to you, yes, there is a season to visit and we’re not talking about Thanksgiving or any of the other big holidays, personally, stay away. Oddly enough, we’ve had to hit up the Big Apple a couple times this year for work related reasons. The funny thing is Spring, or at least this past March has been very reasonable for hotels. At first it seemed odd, but then you have to remember that its Spring break. So most families across the country are on some sort of holiday. If you’re a college kid you’re not going to NYC for the week you have off, if you have small children at home, you’re probably staying at home or maybe just taking a long weekend some where. Spring time there are no official holidays, so it’s not like everyone is trying to get somewhere all at once. New York is almost empty. We found good hotels for around $200 a night. Flights were cheap. Hmmm.
So if you’re feeling the pull of the big city, think about this for next year and try to plan accordingly. Want to get an insiders look, help advice on what people do when they visit NYC, there are more than enough ideas from contributors to Circa New York.
