Known as the "Crossroads of the World", Times Square is a dazzling intersection famed for its lavish neon signs, grand theaters, and pulsating crowds. Whether you're on your way to a Broadway show, a buzzing bar or one of the family-friendly restaurant that line the streets, look out for iconic structures like the Paramount Building and One Times Square – site of the celebrated New Year's Eve ball drop.
One of the art capitals of the world, Chelsea has literally hundreds of renowned galleries to explore, including the Gagosian and the Gladstone. A taste of New York life can be had at Chelsea Market, a vast warren of artisan food stalls. The High Line, an elevated promenade, offers fantastic views of this upscale neighbourhood, while the Chelsea Piers – intended destination of the Titanic – is a great Manhattan landmark.
Think "New York City" and the sights of Midtown East will spring to mind . There's the towering Art Deco splendor of the Chrysler Building, the gleaming edges of the Empire State Building, and the opulence of Grand Central – arguably the world's most famous train station. For top flight shopping, make your way to Saks Fifth Avenue, and you can even walk the corridors of power at the UN Headquarters.
Anyone visiting the Big Apple will want to explore Midtown West – this is where the razzle dazzle of Times Square is, after all. Take in a show on Broadway or, if you fancy giving your mind a workout, take a tour of the celebrated Museum of Modern Art (or MoMA). And when your tummy starts rumbling, check out the French brasseries, sushi bars and Russian eateries on Restaurant Row.
Sandwiched between the winding Hudson River and lush Central Park, Manhattan's Upper West Side is home to New York's most exclusive high-rise apartments, as well as Columbia University. The American Museum of Natural History makes it a history-buff's dream, while the Lincoln Center showcases everything from opera to jazz. A stroll around Riverside Park in full bloom is a fine way to spend a sunny day.

I was excited to stay at the Eventi and true enough they did not let me down. My room had an awesome city view and I had a whole bottle of champange and cupcakes in my room waiting for me! My partner and I are highly satisfied with this hotel. The beds are very comfortable and the wifi was good too!
I would definately be back at the Eventi when I visit the New York City again. Awesome!

I had a good stay. Upon checking in, I was informed that I have been upgraded to a superior room (so I thought great) but on entering my room, I started wondering how tiny the room would have been if I didn't have the luck of the upgrade because even for the superior room, there was only space for opening one suitcase. Anyway, it was a pleasant, quiet hotel, friendly and efficient staff. convenient for going to Soho, even westward to Chelsea, Queens for PS1 - MOMA, and Upper East side for the museums.

I have stayed in several new york hotels before, some are really horrible and I hated them and can't wait to finish my trip. This time, I loved it! The room is not the biggest but it is big enough, the location is perfect for my work, sightseeing and everything else! I will stay here when I come to new york in future now!
