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.
