Advice with regards to my New York Trip

So i have finally booked my trip to New York, its my first long haul flight, first time to America, l shall take my Fuji XE-1 with 18/2 and my Voigtlander Bessa, with a 15/4.5 and 50/1.5. Trip wise l am staying in a hotel at Times Square and shall be there four five days. Obviously there is more to see than five days would allow, my plan is to book a New York greeter, plus order a city pass for the main attractions too, does anyone have any advice or local knowledge they could offer me, thanks in advance for any help.

Photographically speaking, there is a ton to see, and many people will chime in, but my suggestion is going uptown to St.John the Divine Cathedral and the Columbia campus near 116th between Broadway and Amsterdam. It's a good walking area and probably a less frequented area of NY for tourism. I went to school there and used to love hanging out by the church on a sunny day. It's probably not at the top of most people's lists, but it's one of my favorites.



Also, if you like big American style cheeseburgers, I love this place:

Do not forget to visit B&H, even if you do not buy anything there.

Buy a metrocard and put $30+ on it. Go into the station at 42nd 1st and pick any train, going anywhere. See a couple of the other boroughs, ride the Staten island ferry (for free) and get a good look at the statue of liberty.

Learn to follow three conversations at the same time.
Read the menu board and be prepared before ordering.
Go to the top of the Empire State Building, especially if it's hot and muggy.
See a Broadway show.
Most of all, have a great time.

Take the subway all the way to Coney Island park.

I enjoy walking from 4th all the way up to Central Park South (50 blocks) starting from Washington Square passing through Union Square, MSG, Times Square, Bryant Park/NYPL, and Rockefeller. Afternoon light is perfect. Touristy but if people shots are your thing then give it a go.

I love NYC.

As a Brit it is all about walking and the Subway, forget taxis. Carry as little as possible and try to relax (which isn't that easy it is too much fun).

Another tip for someone who was brought up with the London tube...it seems like the Subway trains do not always stop at the next station. Check the destination boards.

Check out the High Line: if the weather is fine, walk the entire length, occasionally dropping down along the way to street level. More here:

as a resident newyorker, here are some tips:

if you're here over a weekend, you must have a subway/train app that helps you get to places, as ALL trains run on insane schedules that are not on any map, a C train will run on the F line, as the F train for part of the line...even for us locals it's confusing and stressful. Google Maps has gotten good but I really use City Mapper.

going to Staten Island on the ferry is great advice. not far from st George terminal is a small Sri Lankan community with food that will blow your mind. and it's not touristy at all. you could also see a Staten Island Yankees (minor league) baseball game too, if you like that. Tickets are maybe $10 and so much fun and a great view of the city.

In Manhattan, Gramercy and the West Village are fantastic for walks and Chinatown...can be intense but so great.

But Brooklyn is where to go, Prospect Park and Fort Greene. Neighborhood bars and family parks, indy book shops and much quieter than Mahttn. you're here when many photo schools are having graduation exhibitions too, parsons, sva and Pratt will all have shows up with a real range (bad, very bad and really good) of work to see.

I want to stress a phone/map gps. do not rely on any printed maps for the subway. they are a mess these days and will be worse Saturday and Sunday.

and good walking shoes, and sunglass and a hat, I got sunburned on Tuesday, first of the year!

Photographically, I recommend hanging out in Central Park on a weekend day, a visit to the Bathesda Fountain and the Mall, and the Sheep Meadow. All of humanity will be trying to get a bit of sun. If rainy: the Metropolitan Museum, the American Museum of Natural History, the Cloisters, the Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim, and the Frick. If free stuff is your thing: the Staten Island Ferry, a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, the High Line, and prowling the streets. Food: best pastrami sandwich: Katz's Delicatessen on Houston Street (pronounced: House-ton) (they have pretty good hot dogs too), espresso in Little Italy and noodles and/or Pho in Chinatown. Bring good walking shoes. Like London, New York is s city best seen on foot, I think.

The Highline is free.

Another thing I tell everyone to do:
Walk over the Brooklyn Bridge from the Brooklyn side toward Manhattan at night.

Chinatown in Manhattan is a shadow of its former self but the two other Chinatowns, one in Flushing, Queens and one in Sunset Park, Brooklyn are both thriving. There’s also a tiny Koreatown in midtown Manhattan on 32nd St.

+1 on Coney Island and the Staten Island ferry.
The Circle Line is an excellent boat tour around Manhattan. It’s my favorite touristy thing to do in my home town!

You’re right about a week not being enough!

Can't believe 2015 has been so long, that's when I visited NYC. However, it was during December (a lucky mild temperature week) so experience should differ. At least, you will have long days.



I second Phil's advice, although if you intend to ride the subway more than once a day (easy to do), the 7-day metrocard might be better. Visited for 4 days as well, but my usage would have justified the 7-day card... And I would actually have rode more public transport.



B&H is almost a must to visit, and a great place to pick up some film. I almost filled my SD cards so bought some in Adorama as well, and they were very helpful. After so many years of reading online about the stores, it was interesting to be physically there. Found Adorama quite smaller.


NYC is quite shocking for an European. I've been in mid sized cities and visited London... But the scale and presence of NYC is nothing we have in the continent IMO. During blue hour walking around downtown is quite an experience due to the skyscrapers.
Touristy thing you have to do is to go up one of the main observation decks. I find the best time may be evening after a long day, though in my case I sadly missed sunset and was up during dark... Still very impressive. During hotel small talk with another guest, we culled it down to either Rockefeller's or Empire state. They are more centric and in the open than the WTO.
I stayed a couple hours up there, went to Macy's for some evening shopping, and off for the day.



On arrival you should find maps very easily, in the hotel for example. Times Sq/42st is just dead center, and from there you can ride anywhere. Also interesting to walk around the area (up broadway to columbus circle) at night. Although subway is very good to cover longer distance, I walked a lot.

Museums

If you're going to museums, either go early or late. For example, the Metropolitan is open until 9PM on Fridays and Saturdays and is usually fairly empty in the evening compared to noon time any day. If you do go during the day, buy a "dirty water dog" (hotdog) from any of the vendors and sit on the steps and watch everyone take their selfies. Great fun.
Enjoy the trip.

The East Village and Lower East side are a bit more low key, yet still jammed with stuff to see. The walk from the F train at Houston either north or south in a zig-zag fashion offers a lot to see: galleries, food, drink, bridges to get out on, and as you get down towards City Hall even some of Chinatown. The old NY streets and alleys, small blocks, lower buildings, and hints of the grit that used to be everywhere.

If you get up towards Columbia U, Riverside Park is really lovely.

And yes, get a map. Also, don’t hesitate to ask anyone for directions or advice. Despite their reputation you will find New Yorkers quite nice folks.

Subways are f*cked on the weekends as others have said. Google Maps does subway directions pretty well.

I would say get out of Times Square unless you want to see other tourists. Anyone who lives here avoids it like the plague. The neon and video screeens are fun for 10 minutes and then it's just annoying.

HighLine is good but also crowded, weekday mornings probably best. Good spots to eat in Chelsea Market right below highline. If you are on the Highline pop off between 22nd and 24 streets and walk through the galleries. There is usually something fun to see. Also the Whitney is good manageable museum right on the Highline now.

Central Park is great on a nice day.

If you go to one of the other big museums like the Met, Natural History, or the Moma, I would advise to go in with a plan. They are huge and easy to get burned out on. If you have an idea of a few things to see, I feel like you get more out of it.

Contrary to others, I would say avoid B&H unless you need something. It's crowded and not a fun place to visit unless you have an unnatural attraction to big box commerce.

Taking the 2 or 3 trains out Brooklyn you can hit the Brooklyn Museum (great Gary Winogrand show right now), the Brooklyn Botanical Garden and Prospect park. They are all in walking distance from one another and lovely right now.

Let yourself wander about without too much a plan. Find a place you want to eat or a gallery you want to go to and walk there and see what happens. You kinda have to work at it now to find an unsafe place. The city is pretty defanged from years past so anywhere you're likely to go is fairly safe.

What nightfly said is all good. That's why I said get on the subway and get out of Times Square.
I'm not a fan of B&H unless I need film and happen to be close.
Right now at the Howard Greenberg gallery is a Bruce Davidson retrospective. It's within walking distance.
If you like doughnuts, visit the Donut Pub on 7th ave and 14th. It is 24hrs/day and they have some of the best fried dough you can get. If you are there after last call you will see all sorts of local craziness. Maybe even Mike the Magic Man. Get a freshly dipped Boston Cream.
Find a corner pizza shop in Brooklyn and learn in just one slice what pizza is meant to taste like. Stay away from Katz's Deli unless you know exactly what you want when you're on line. Find an Essa Bagels and get a bialy. "Regular coffee" in NYC is with cream and sugar added. The cup is then placed in a bag.
Don't stand in the sidewalk blocking locals with a map up to your face.
Molly's is a family friendly Irish pub on 1st ave and 22nd in Madhattan with the best burger (IMO) you can get on the east coast.
Shoot a lot and have fun.

The White Horse Bar, Hudson St. and 11th St. was a hangout for many famous literary types, Dylan Thomas being one. Kerouac was thrown out of there several times. I also manged to find the apartment building W.H. Auden lived in for twenty years, a block that is still pretty poor although not as sketchy as in the 1970s. For all its size New York is an eminently walkable city (for my wife and I, but we hike a good deal), and it smells better than in the subway. Many of the old neighborhoods are being rebuilt into insanely expensive condos and insanely expensive hip, low density clothing shops. Cities change, even the ones which don't, so take lots of pictures.



But let me say this: It's easy to attach a lot of cultural baggage to New York. The history, artists, writers, photographers, museums, etc. But as my brother-in-law told me, New York "is always in the process of becoming", and nothing could be more true. It is utterly unique, as are its people. It's also bankrupt and evidence of its decay is everywhere, alongside the evidence of its vast past and current wealth. It is best just to throw yourself headlong into everything it offers; the next time you visit it will be different in some indefinable way. I've been there only once and I ate a lot of crow while there. Just jump, you can sleep on the plane.



The traffic is managed chaos. Energizing at first but that will wear off, believe me. I found the theater district too crowded and Times Square was overwhelmed with tourists but the gigantic TV screens were something you might see in 'Tokyo meets Bladerunner'. I recall being on Hudson St and looking over my shoulder only to be startled to see in the distance the Empire State Building, alone, towering over everything around it. As if it still was The Tallest. Take away the cars and it was 1940. There are simple surprises everywhere and, as mentioned earlier, the people are truly friendly. But keep your kit simple and tune your situational awareness. I was cased on Madison Ave. and maybe 37th St. by a young man who decided he needed to tie his running shoe, using the fire hydrant, right next to me. I gave him a very long return stare and he ambled off.


I found the coffee everywhere to be terrible. You'll love it.
Oh, here's some places we ate:
CoCotte. Basque tapas. South of Washington Square I think. Awesome. Tiny.

Sam's Place. Across the street from Pod39. Italian, very good, I thought. Not too expensive-for New York.

Le Rivage. Theater District. Prix fixe. Very good.

Alidoro. 39th st. near Pod39. Sandwiches were what we bought.

My god!! How did I forget The Donut Pub?!? It truly is one of the last vestiges of 'real' New York.

Its 02:10 am in the morning, l should be in bed but instead l am quaffing tea, Russian Caravan, thank you everyone for the replies, l shall endeavor to reply to each post over the coming weekend. As far as l can recall l have been aware of a city called New York, the prospect of visiting it fills me equally with dread and awe, your replies in this thread are invaluable, I feel an encounter with New York may assault the senses, although l work in a city l live in a small market town and spend my spare time fishing isolated beaches in Northumberland and Scotland.............as my granny used to say, 'the change will do you good'. Anyway, its early and l should be in my bed, until tomorrow my friends..............
