New York travel tips

1) Gourmets must visit the Gansevoort Market in New York City

The Gansevoort Market at 101 Liberty Street in New York City has something even for the most demanding gourmets. The Burger Inc makes large tasty burgers; choose the Spicy Pork Bibimbap if you like meat with vegetables; the cookies from the Two Geese Bakery is a great dessert.

2) Forget about the double-decker bus in New York City. Go for a walk with locals for free

The double-decker bus in New York City is boring and problematic. They have a free-tours-by-foot service, where you can join a small group to explore different districts and interests of New York City with locals. There is no fee (although little tips are welcomed). Check it out!

3) Cafe Lalo in New York City is a paradise for sweets lovers; gluten-free sweets are also available

Visit Cafe Lalo at 201 W 83rd St in New York City if you like sweets. It is so difficult to choose from over 30 different cakes, 23 flavours of cheesecake, 10 types of pie, a dozen kinds of fruit tart, cookies and pastries. Gluten-free sweets are also available.
