New York City is home to some of the best food in the world. A visitor could easily get just about any type of cuisine at any hour of the day, and in any neighborhood at that.

This makes things really appealing to those who live there, and it's sometimes hard not to resist the urge to sample some of the many delicious but unhealthy foods of the world.

One of the biggest crazes in recent years in Manhattan has been the burger craze. It seems like every neighborhood has seen an influx of burger joints, giving diners plenty of options for getting their burger fixes.

Here are four places that you might want to sample if you happen to be in New York and enjoy burgers. These are some of the very best that I've tried during my time here.

1. Shake Shack. What can be said about this modern day landmark? The Shake Shack sprung to immediate success after opening in Madison Square Park about 5 years ago. Not only is the scenery great, but the fast food style burger is hailed by many as the best in the city. There are now locations on the upper west side, and at Citi Field.

2. BLT Burger. The BLT family of upscale restaurants opened a burger joint on 6th Avenue and 12th Street a few years ago, and this is thought of by many as one of the best in the city.

Not only can you get some great high quality burgers, but the fries and milkshakes are just as enjoyable. The "fluffernutter" milkshake there is a must try for any fans of that food type.

3. Fresh 'N Fast is an interesting new burger joint on 23rd Street that has many speaking about it. What makes this burger interesting is the fact that the name, look and feel, menu, and style of the food all match that of In-N-Out Burger, the huge West Coast chain that so many people love.

Many wonder if the two are so close in nature that copyright infringement could be an issue, but all is good at this new establishment for now.

4. Black Shack Burger. This is a new establishment at 38th and Lexington that features a fast food style atmosphere with a bit more class.

Their signature Black Shack burger is spoken of as a very high quality Whopper, and I would have to agree. This is definitely worth trying out if you're in the area.
