This Month's Featured Travel Articles

New York City
New York, like many major sophisticated cities, offers the best of everything. And having the best can be very expensive. However, you can pick and choose what you'd like to spend your money on, like theater tickets, for instance, and find less expensive bistros and hotels. Or, go for same-day half-price Broadway tickets and book at a five-star hotel. You can pick and choose to meet your budget. I love the buffet lunches, for example, that many of the city's Indian restaurants offer. They are extensive and amazingly inexpensive.

If you dine in some of the smaller ethnic restaurants, you'll have great food at lower prices avoid hotel restaurants that tend to be pricier. Pre-theater dinners are often prix fixe and very reasonable, too.

There are many free things to do in the city as well from museum exhibits to outdoor concerts. If you pick up a copy of New York Magazine or Time Out New York you can look at each week's listings to find them. Taking the subway will certainly help keep your costs down so don't hesitate to ask for help if you need it. Plus the subway is quick and covers all the boroughs except for Staten Island (you get there by ferry and then take a bus)....read more about New York City, New York

Saratoga Springs

George Washington not only slept here, he brought his friends along and partied. “Here” is Saratoga Springs, New York, famous for its mineral waters, horse racing and fashionable culture. Since just after the Revolutionary War, the rich and powerful in American society have been flocking to the Saratoga region. Today, the wealthier classes still gather at the city’s wide variety of social spots, but more frequently they rub elbows with the “average Joe.” Why the sudden appeal to the average tourist?

Before the 1950’s, Saratoga was popular as a gambling mecca. Casinos and horse racing went hand-in-glove with taking the famous mineral baths and dining in fine restaurants. It was a place to see and be seen....read more about Saratoga Springs New York

New York, New York
The most prestigious and renowned borough is Manhattan. It’s an island where the best theaters, cinemas and shops are located. One of the biggest attractions in Manhattan is Central Park - an oasis of green in the middle of New York City. Here you can escape from the city noise, relax and enjoy nature. Manhattan is also filled up the highest skyscrapers with the offices of the leading international corporations. However Manhattan isn’t only that chic. Harlem – one of the most dangerous city districts is also there. Many think that there’s nothing more in New York, than Manhattan, but other four boroughs are also worth seeing....read more about New York, New York >>

The Manhattan Bridge is very close to the Brooklyn Bridge and the Empire State Building is visible on the horizon. Tons of walkers and bikers were making the trekk across the bridge and the weather was pretty decent, sunny with about 16 degrees Celsius.

After the bridge we arrived at NYC City Hall which was blocked off to pedestrian traffic and there was a big congregation of media people on the front steps. Tons of people were sitting around the beautiful fountain just outside of city hall and with the blue sky, the blooming trees and the surrounding architectural arrangements this was just the perfect place to snap away with the camera. I particularly fell in love with the ornate spires of the Woolworth Building....read more about Downtown Manhattan >>
