Battery park area

This will be our first visit to NY , I have a good price for the Conrad hotel which is close to battery park . Is this area too far from the tourist attractions ?

Ive stayed in Battery Park at what was then the Ritz Carlton. Its much quieter but only 5-10 mins from central areas by cab. Very handy for Statue of Liberty

Much quieter at night and a fair way from most of the touristy areas, bar statue of liberty & one world trade

personally I would be looking at midtown especially for a first visit so nearly everything will be walkable

fwiw will be a lot longer than 5-10 mins to the 'main' areas imo

Id also be looking more at midtown for a first visit. However NYC public transport will take you everywhere.

It's a bit dead down there to be honest, but quite easy to get back into the action. I prefer midtown.

Agree with the above - I suspect you'll feel a bit distant from the main sights and buzz you'll want to experience.

It's an easy subway ride uptown from there (20 -25 minutes), but you won't want to be doing it all the time, which you might end up doing. A cab or Uber would take a similar time, depending on traffic.

I too would be looking at midtown. Sort of from the bottom of central park down, almost to level with the empire state area for us. But also stayed upper East side which was lovely. Just check wherever you are looking to book against the subway map to see the connections available. At the top of the general trip planning section there is a sticky that shows where people tend to stay. There may be some who gave stayed in the conrad who can give a view on it.

We stayed in The Parker last week and it was a great location for a first-time visitor (I wasn't, but my daughter was).

It's a lovely hotel with a fab "secret" burger joint, a great roof-top pool and fab views towards Central Park. Worth checking out, IMO.

Id say Battery Park is a bit far down the far end of Manhattan, good for Statue of Liberty and 9/11 memorial but Id recommend staying a bit further up, we stayed near Times Sq.
