3 Day NYC Itinerary - yay or nay?

Jump to last reply

Hi! My husband and I (30 somethings) are heading to NYC for a short three night stay in early September. He's never been and it's been 15 years since I've been there. We are traveling without our toddler so we want to see a lot in a fast-paced trip. Also, I'd rather plan stuff out ahead if possible rather than wait in line for stand-by tickets. Here's the itinerary we are thinking:

Wed - arrive LaGuardia around 2 pm; take taxi to Manhattan hotel; maybe do a little walk about (NBC Studios Tour?) and get the lay of the land. See "Wicked"
Thurs - do Ellis Island/Statue of Liberty tour (emphasis on EI, not SOL); tickets to TV taping (if we can get them)
Fri - All Day "Real New York Tours" tour (hits all the big touristy highlights); Mets evening game
Sat - ? open - Depart on 8 pm flight

Anyone see any major problems with this itinerary? Any suggested changes? I know we should do the tour first but it's not offered til Friday. Also, I know it's an ambitious itinerary but we don't know when we'll be able to get back.

Thanks for your help!
