I'm off to NYC in December (flights booked but not hotel at present).
I'm trying to find the best location to stay within manhattan for my needs which are:
Seeing the main sites by day
Decent food in the evening
Beers at night
I appreciate you will never see it all in the four days I am there but I want to get a good feel for it. Does it make that much difference where you stay as long as you are near a subway?
Are there any particular areas with groups of bars?
Many thanks for your time,
