Five key stones of New York City

The world’s largest city New York consists of five boroughs or sections. Each borough is the home to hundreds of distinguished unique neighborhoods, almost all of them with a definable history and character to convey the feeling of thousands of families residing here. If the boroughs could be granted the status of independent cities, four of them namely Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, and the Bronx would be ranked among the ten most populous cities in the United States, without any hard effort.

Brooklyn has ensured its presence is dominated feature on the western tip of the city and it became an official part of the city in 1898. Brooklyn has always been distinctive for its cultural, social ethnic diversity, an independent art scene, neighborhoods and architectural heritage. It is the second borough with a distinct downtown neighborhood. This section of the city features a long beachfront property. Manhattan is the highly populated sector of the city, with the Central Park and with the majority of the city’s skyscrapers, being a part of it. It is the main financial center of the grand city and is home to the United Nations, some important universities, and also residing a large stock of many culturally diverse attractions.

Queens is geographically the largest portion of the city, which is the most ethnically diverse county in the whole of the United States. It is predicted by experts that Queens might overrun Brooklyn as the city’s densely populated borough due to its immense proportionality of growth. Originally it was a collection of small towns and villages founded by the Dutch traders in 1600s; today the borough has maintained its status as a residential to the middle class. Queens also sites the Citi Field, the home of the New York Mets, and annually hosts the grand and highly speculated event U.S. Open tennis tournament. It has two of the three major airports serving the New York city, namely LaGuardia Airport and John F. Kennedy International Airport.

Staten Island is truly an island present in the city and is connected to Brooklyn by the historic land mark known as the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and to Manhattan by Staten Island Ferry. The Staten Island Ferry is one of the highly rated tourist attractions in the massive New York City as it is unique part of the city which provides the highly desired views of the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and lower Manhattan. The 2,500 acres Greenbelt has some 28 miles of walking trails and is the only remaining undisturbed forests in the city. Functional since 1984 in order to protect the island’s natural lands, the Greenbelt is composed of seven city parks. The Bronx  is the most northern borough, home to the only largest cooperatively owned housing complex in the America, the famous Co-op City. The Bronx is the only section of the city that falls in place as a part of the American mainland. It is home to the all time famous and entertaining Bronx Zoo. It is officially the largest zoo in the whole of United America; it covers an area up to 265 acres and resides over 6,000 animals. The Bronx is the mentioned as the homeland to rap and hip hop culture. Staten Island has been declared as the most suburban defined in character between in the five.

Youth hostels and cheap hostels

Youth hostels are a great way to save money on accommodation for persons traveling on a severely limited budget. Youth hostels provide cheap, sociable accommodation in which guests can rent a bed and share bathroom, a lounge, and a kitchen with other guests. Rooms can be mixed or single-sex; and although private rooms are available in some youth hostels, this is a rarity, as youth hostels are designed to be cheap for both the occupant and the operator.

In a few countries, such as the UK, Ireland, India, and Australia, the word hostel sometimes also refers to establishments providing longer-term accommodation, where the youth hostels are sometimes run by Housing Associations and charities. In the rest of the world, the word hostel refers only to properties offering shared accommodation to travelers or backpackers. These two latter tend to be the most common patrons of youth hostels.

Every year, thousands of young people from all over the world travel throughout Europe, Asia, Australia, and America to see new sights and explore new regions. The emergence of youth hotels has made this a lot more affordable for many young people. And it has created a booming industry in many parts of the world. The independent hostel industry is growing rapidly in many cities around the world, such as New York, Rome, Buenos Aires and Miami. This is reflected in the development and expansion of dozens of hostel chains worldwide.

The recent eruption in independent hostels has done much to make traveling safe and less costly. Many youth hostels are located in or close to trendy or central parts of the cities they are in. This means travelers no longer have to worry about spending exorbitant sums just to have ready access to the best areas of a city. For young people trying who are more interested in being out and about, and just need a place to rest their head for a few hours, this is especial welcome news.

The traditional youth hostel format involved dormitory style accommodation. Some of the newer youth hostels include en-suite accommodation with single, double or quad occupancy rooms, though to be considered a hostel they must also provide dormitory accommodation. In recent years, the numbers of independent and backpackers’ hostels have increased greatly to cater for the greater numbers of overland, multi-destination travelers (such as gap-year travelers, and rail-trippers).

The quality of such places has also improved dramatically. While a few hostels do still insist on a curfew, daytime lockouts, and/or require occupants to do chores, this is becoming a rare exception rather than the rule, as hostels adapt to meet the changing expectations of guests. The worldwide web has also changed the way the relation between youth hostels and consumers of youth hostel services. Persons are now able to use the web to find youth hostels, which puts great pressure on independent and chain youth hostels to keep prices under control and services up-to-date. Given how extraordinarily proficient young people are with the web, it behooves every youth hostel to offer the good value for money.
