My husband and I have been offered two amazing places to stay in New York via Home Exchange. One is a beautiful Brownstone in Bergen St, Boerum Hill, Brooklyn and the other is a huge luxurious apartment near Penn Station in the Chelsea/Nomad neighbourhood, Manhattan.
Neither of us have been to New York before and of course we want to do and see everything there is to offer. We are middle aged, fit and adventurous....and love eating out! What are people's opinions and advice on which area would be better to stay please?
