I don't know if I'll do it, but with a friend we are talking about going to New York this year. But I don't know this city nor what there is to do, to see, to visit etc. Of course, I know the "obvious places" (not much lol). Liberty island and Central park ... well that's it. So, first of all : Any temper to meet there? Then, what would you recommend me to visit in 1-2 weeks? my friend always wanted to go to New York but never traveled, and me I wasn't really interested so far so I don't have any particular place I want to see. we would use the metro and walking for all our locomotion, so anything near our staying place (Brooklyn/Manhattan) finally : Do you have any suggestion for a reasonable/cheap place where to stay? Hotel? private flat renting you know or you could rent yourself? preferably in Brooklyn (Manhattan would be too expansive), or maybe the Bronx? I didn't check travel agencies yet, it's only a draft idea for a project so I'm only gathering possibilities and information on what to do there. We didn't decide a month choice yet, but summer looks expansive for the plane, so either before June or after September. Or maybe it won't be done this year. we are just looking at our options.
