Soho & Lower East Side.
Lower East Side used to be the hot spot for newly arrived immigrants many moons ago, but now it is thriving and plays host to some of the sleekest bars and restaurants in the city. It still has excellent reminders of what it once was with street markets and delis which is a great way to soak up some local culture too.
As for Soho, which is actually short for South of Houston Street was heavily industrial in previous years. Which is why the buildings, are quite frankly, beautiful and full of history. This is an excellent place if you are looking for the nightlife of NYC without the main attractions being too close.
Young, trendy, awesome.
If you need somewhere to rest your head after all of that check this place out for the Lower East Side

Upper East Side
Peaceful, serene, and overflowing with culture. If you dig art galleries and feeling a little bit on the luxurious side, then this is for you. The Guggenheim and the Met (Metropolitan Museum of Art) are both here. What makes it something a little extra special is the fact it runs parallel to the glorious Central Park.
If you are in the mood to spend out and have that high-class NYC experience then either Upper East Side or, the opposite side of the park Upper West Side is going to be ideal. Upper West Side home to the Natural History Museum and Lincoln Centre.

Although many people have a pretty gritty image of Harlem, you might be surprised to find that it is the location that the old meets the new. It is a hub for the rich African-American culture and is home to the First Corinthian Baptist Church which is
breathtaking. You will be hard pushed to beat the vibrancy of this location.
The local cafes and restaurants serve up a delectable mix of food, and the street vendors pretty much sell anything you can imagine.
For the free-spirited soul, Chelsea is super boho. Having a healthy mix of antique markets, cute and quirky cafes and pop up boutiques. The location stunning and it rivals some of the much more expensive areas when it comes to night time city skyline views. Another huge perk is the almost excessive 200+ art galleries packed into the surrounding area. The fine dining is nothing to be sniffed at either.

Potentially one of the best combinations in the world – Italian food in America. Not only is it stunning to take a stroll around, due to its authentic Italian feel, but the restaurants are divine. If you have a love of all things Mafia movie related, then you will be right at home here. Although as it’s popularity grows you’re likely to bump into just as many tourists and locals. If you are a bit of a festival buff, then September will be the perfect time for you to go for the San Gennaro Festival. The San Gennaro Festival has plenty of free music and more cannoli than you can shake a stick at. It’s one of the oldest running street celebrations that NYC has and shouldn’t be missed.
This place in Tribeca is close enough to smell the pasta, and head to the Westfield World Trade Centre too.
