Customer Travel Tip: Don't just stay in Manhatten, stay a night or two in Queens or Harlem, see the rest that the city has to offer. Don't be a typical tourist and you'll be surprised. There was this one Columbian Restaurant that just blew us away.

Liked: The mass-transit, sights to be seen, timesquare, history and culture, etc. - are all amazing.

Disliked: The people are cold in Manhatten, outside in Queens or Harlem however the people are alive, energetic and amazing!
