So much fun walking down Park Avenue right before sunset in the rain. The reflections of the lights in the wet streets are beautiful!

It is great to walk along this wonderful avenue, explore the many shops and take a break at one of the coffee shops and restaurants. There is an interesting combination of historical and modern buildings, including many residential ones.

Always nice to stroll along this street, and the fact that one of my favourite deli’s just happens to be on this street is a bonus Take the time to enjoy this little piece of the big apple

The sidewalk outside 101 Park Avenue is lined with brass plaques depicting notable buildings in the area. Many of the architects who designed those buildings were once based out of the Architects' Building, which formerly stood on this site.

Park Ave South has a lot of good restaurants so it can be a destination. The rest of Park Ave has some beautiful architecture and fancy prewar apts but nothing to do really. Not tops on any list

Our hotel is close to park avenue. So, during our vacation, we are attending it with diligence. There is not much to see: large companies are based in this way. So we see super busy businessmen walking along the street. And of course the homes...More

Nothing too important here. It has some nice buildings, stores, you can go from the Bowery to Harlem. Nice view of Metlife building and Grand Central.

I am on Park Avenue almost every other day. While one half reflects the richest zip codes, above 96th Street the quality of housing and living conditions goes downhill fast esp when Park Ave crosses into the Bronx and ends up on 135th Street. I...More

Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have
easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural
institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most
livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth
Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of
the nation's most famous attractions in a single
stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the
Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the

I tried to keep it as short as possible trip report! (12 Replies)
Trip got off to a very worrying start: 1. Left home at 6.15 for a 10 am flight and got stuck in a huge traffic jam on the motorway where a lorry had overturned. Waited in the car for over an hour while road was cleared and arrived at car park around 8 am - good job we had pre-booked our seats. 2. Got on shuttle bus to Terminal 3 (had never used this before) and as we coasted up to the terminal the bus driver shouted out "Terminal 3!" but didn't stop - apparently if you want the bus to...More

MerseyBoy - nice report. Glad you had a good time despite the transit strike nonsense. It was also interesting to note your delays and how they affected your itinerary. Others should take note and make sure they have some flexibility in their plans. As lo surprised about your reaction to 2nd Ave. deli, just had lunch there, quite good and reasonable for NYC delis, I thought. Poppa

My friend and I are spending the last day and a half in Canyonlands/Arches/Dead Horse SP on August 10th/11th. I'm set on seeing at least Island in the Sky and Dead Horse SP. We'll be driving down from Salt Lake so we probably won't be there earlier than noon at the earliest. My initial thought was to go right to Island in the Sky on the first day, drive around to scenic locations and do a hike or two, then drive back out to Dead Horse and spend an hour and a half or 2 there. After, we...More
