Union square. Easy to get around and much nicer than midtown.

like

Midtown East near grand central is easily accessible. Westin Grand Central is a nice hotel.

I find the East side harder to move around and navigate from. Try midtown west

I personally like staying near Chelsea, West Village or East Village but depends on your vibe. There are a lot of reasonably priced marriotts near chelsea

The Lexington by Marriott is my go to when I’m there for work

Very exciting! For the first time, I’d stay in Midtown. Centrally located and lots to do/see, can walk anywhere. There are also a bunch of good hotels. Depending on your budget… from the St Regis to the Peninsula, or Hyatt Centric or Grand Hyatt or Westin. All solid.

Don’t stay in Times Square

do you have a budget for the hotel? only thing i can recommend at this point is to not stay in/near times square.

I would say Times Square is a good place to stay for a first time because people generally find it exciting (the first time) and it’s easy to travel from. Marriott marquis or westin is nice there.

What kind of trip are you looking to have? Seeing touristy (covering the well known sites), educational (museums and such), music based, outdoor focused, foodie, shopping? There’s so much to do in the city that I’d think about what type of trip you want to have then decide the area based on that

How bad does it look to prospective employers to change jobs every 3 years? I've done this since college (12 years ago) and have tripled my salary as a result. Granted, I've switched between the same two companies each time, getting a big pay bump in the process. Now, the other company is looking at bringing me back again (3rd time). The pay bump won't be as big, but much better WLB, less travel, and I'll be able to do what I love. Opinions on this?

Hey y’all - I have a large amount (think $20K +) of credit card debt. I recently finished grad school and have enough to pay it all off, but a lot of my money is in stocks, mutual funds, etfs, etc. Should I just liquidate and pay down the CC debt ASAP? Should I consolidate the CC debt into another loan? Curious how folks have thought about the right balance of debt vs investment.
