3 Best NYC Suburbs for Travelers on a Budget


New York City is one of the most popular places to live. People from all walks of life inhabit the Big Apple and bring an abundance of culture. The city presents its inhabitants with endless possibilities in business, relationships, and experiences. However, New York is an incredibly expensive place to live in. The cost of living is too high for most young people to consider moving to the city. 

Fortunately, there are suburbs that are affordable for most people to live in. These neighborhoods are right outside the city and have plenty to do for folks looking to have some fun. Read on to find a neighborhood that you might consider staying in the next time you visit New York.
Ditmas Park
This area in Brooklyn is slowly becoming more affordable for younger couples. Older Americans are starting to sell their homes to younger homeowners, allowing millennials a foothold in the Brooklyn area. The small suburb has farmers markets, live music, and rare sites like The Sacred Vibes Apothecary. Ditmas Park is about a 35-minute drive from The New York City center. You can also take the subway if you don't feel like driving.
The rural town of Orangeburg is a perfect place for millennials who want to stay in a hotel that's close to New York. Orangeburg has a rich history that can be viewed at the Edward Hopper House Museum & Study Center. Other historical sites, such as the Old Dutch Church and Burying Ground, can be viewed in your leisure time. 
Like Ditmas Park, Orangeburg is a 35-minute drive away from downtown New York. You will have to cross the George Washington Bridge to enter Manhattan. Orangeburg is perfect if you're looking for the feel of a small town that is close to the hustle and bustle of a major city.
This small middle-class town is a gem for young couples looking to settle down. The small town has an abundance of pubs to visit. Whether you're a wine connoisseur or more of a beer drinker, there is a venue just for you. There are also dozens of thrift shops for you to visit on a lazy Sunday. The Stray Vintage, for example, has some of the best vintage gifts around town. If you choose to stay in Sunnyside, you can leave your vehicle parked at the hotel and take the local bus straight to Manhattan. 
People continue to flock to New York City regardless of its high cost of living. There are dozens of reasons people want to move to New York, and travelers will find plenty of things to do while visiting this popular city. Whether you want to experience the culture or check out all of the amazing attractions, there's something for everyone. What's even better is that you can cut down on travel costs by staying in the nearby suburbs. If you plan your trip carefully, you can still get a taste of New York while staying within your budget.
