    £510 seems quite high for a flight to NY, unless you mean the £510 includes hotel and flight.

    Went there - I loved it, I had a good deal on staying in a 4 star hotel near Times Square (off broadway) I really had a lot of fun there. Enjoy it.

    which end of the park?? 3 stars - they might rent rooms by the hour...

    Go the whole hog central park south Gramercy or Ritz Carlton - for a few quid more $2 to a £1

    I personally found Central park a bit too far (i.e. about 15 minutes extra walk), especially if you want to be near theatres , comedy clubs and shopping areas.. hence I stayed on 48th street (about 3 minutes walk from Times Square)

    However NY is the easiest town to find your way round cuz they have the grid system, also taxies are not expensive at all..

    btw: this is a really really important advice, when you arrive at the airport, there will be plenty of taxi drivers offering you a taxi ride (official taxies ) but don't take any of it, walk to the formal taxi rank queue, the ride from JFK or Newark airports to Manhattan should be $50 (not sure if its the same still , but there is a set price) I know someone else who took the first taxi without going to the formal queue and paid double price for it.

    If I had the time, I would choose 6 nights in Havana for the the same price.
