4 Nights in NYC. Where to stay Manhattan, Brooklyn or Long Island

Jump to last reply


First time in NYC for my wife and I. Due to the size of the place I am having major problems deciding where to stay. I fancied Brooklyn or Long Island (close to the East river so not far from Manhattan) to experience something a little less touristy.....yeah, ironic! During the day we would do most of the Manhattan sights and hoped that Brooklyn or Long Island were more of a chilled restaurant bar scene at night.

Our to do list is probably pretty standard, Central Park, Empire State or Rockefeller, Staten Island Ferry to see SoL, a dinner cruise on the Hudson & East river, Grand Central and of course the Brooklyn Bridge. Lastly a wee bit of shopping for the good lady.

The hotels I've seen and location are:
Henry Norman Hotel, 251 North Henry Street, Brooklyn, NY, 11222
Z NYC Hotel, 11-01 43rd Avenue, Long Island City, NY, 11101
Dazzler Hotel, 85 Flatbush Ave Extension, Brooklyn, NY, 11201

Any help would be appreciated.
