After posting several times and reading pages and pages of posts on this topic, I cannot believe we still cannot decide. Last time we were planning to come to NYC I found it so overwhelming, we went to Vegas. Now, we are really wanting to come, but faced with the same challenge. The economy must not be that bad because hotel prices are high (in line with what you would pay in another big city with less to offer). So many districts, it is difficult to choose, but more neighbouthoody seems to be more popular. We even toyed with staying in Brooklyn (isn't it the new place to be that used to be the old place to be?).
Is it just me, or do others find it this challenging? Maybe it's because we don't get to vacation to often and when we do, we want to make the most out of every minute. (Not to mention, I am a type "A" personality!)
