My trip
As you all know, I'm off to the US in a few months. Which, shall be most exciting. I cannot wait. I am counting down the sleeps like a 5 year old at Christmas. (In fact, it's 2 months tomorrow I leave Australia)

My brother, and my friend Liam both want me to go to New York while I'm over there. Liam has been there before, and said that I will love it, and I'll kick myself later on if I don't go.

So this question might be more for the Americans on my flist, but anyone who's travelled I'll listen to. As a single female, how safe do you feel in NY? I haven't been able to explain to Scott and Liam that women think differently to guys, and what they felt was safe and fun and easy can be completely different when you're a woman. Women notice things that men don't.

I'd love to go to New York City, but I need a slight push from the gusty chicks I know. And if you have been to NY, can you reccommend me places to stay**, to eat, things I should most definately see. Any and all advice will be gratefully accepted and remembered.

** I am a woman who loves her creature comforts. My idea of roughing it is 1 ply toilet papaer. Hostels and backbacker hotels aren't really my cup of tea. I likes my privacy.

As a single traveller I had no problems at all doing New York I admit it was December of 2001 so it was quieter than usual and I do plan to go back. I would pick up a timeout guide they usual have a pretty good range of accommodation with websites and email address so you can talk to them. I stay in the Holiday Inn just next to Time Square. For people watching I suggest anywhere in The Village or central park but first stop has to be The Empire State building it just gives you such an amazing view of the place and if you get chance New York Central Library it has a deli next to it that severed home-made pink lemonade that was just amazing.
