Just a couple of blocks from the burger joints and hot dog stands of Times Square, Koreatown is an up and coming area alive with the sights and smells of real New York. Centred on 32nd Street between Broadway and Fifth Avenue, K-town, as it’s locally known, gives foodie travellers a little slice of some of the most exciting and eclectic eateries the Big Apple has to offer!
Alternatively, the local weekly magazine guides such as Time Out are a great ‘go to’ tool when looking for the latest hotspot to brunch or even for a list of discounted happy hour offerings (they do exist!).
For those looking for a little pampering but can’t afford the extravagance of the city’s luxury spa hotels, there are fabulous nail bars to be found on nearly every street where visitors can pop in (without making a booking) and get spruced up from as little as $10 – offering a great opportunity to submerge yourself in the day-to-day life of these busy city dwellers.
While visitors looking to escape the tourist traps, will find refuge at the recently opened, High Line. Built on an old railway and with fabulous views of Manhattan’s cityscape, this recreational park is a great spot for people watching with both locals and tourists alike using the space.
Located just four blocks from the High Line and in the midst of K-town, the re-launched, nyma, the new york manhattan hotel offers a whole host of FREE amenities for savvy travellers including complimentary continental breakfast, wi-fi and phone calls nationwide.
Room rates at this budget-friendly hotel start from US$254.99 per night in October 2011 (approx. £78 per person based on two sharing). To book, please call freephone 0808 178 6363 or visit www.thenewyorkmanhattanhotel.com. Flights and accommodation taxes excluded.
