New York City Travel Tips

Essential Information on the Big Apple

New York City is America’s most populous city, its premier business center, and its cultural capital. Home to more than 8 million residents from every corner of the globe, it is a rich and diverse microcosm of the melting pot that is the United States of America. New York is a sprawling metropolis divided into many vibrant, varied neighborhoods with defining attractions, cuisine and demographics.

Crowne Plaza Times Square Manhattan is located in the heart of Times Square, a point of convergence for a number of smaller neighborhoods in Midtown Manhattan. Directly outside our hotel’s front door are the bright lights and unending excitement of Times Square itself. Walk a few blocks east and you’ll find the more corporate, formal environment of Rockefeller Center and Fifth Avenue. Venture west to explore Hell’s Kitchen, a district with an exciting blend of bars, restaurants, shops and tree-lined streets.
