SAVE A BUCK OR TWO WHILE VISITING NEW YORK DURING WINTER

New York City is wonderful place to visit any time of the year including winter, yes you read it right: winter! Unquestionably there are several indoor attractions that are widely known such as the Empire State building, Broadway shows, museums like Guggenheim, MoMA, American Museum of National History among others. As you may know, the mentioned attractions would cost you more than a penny.

We decided to stay in this lovely room located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Easy access and included a couch, a coffee table, a dresser and a double bed. Read more »
