We've booked the time off work (late May), saved the cash and are looking to spend 5-6 nights in New York for our first trip to the US (live in the UK).
Trying to avoid the package deals for flights + room if possible to make the money go futher. Any locals have good recommendations for a nice place to stay? The other half is a little worried about picking a place in a "bad" area because we dont know the city. We dont plan on spending much time in the hotel just after a nice enough place to rest our heads at night.
Also is there anything particually uniquely game/comic/nerdy in the area that I should check out?
