Avoiding post Thanksgiving madness.

Jump to last reply

We fly into NYC the evening of Thanksgiving. I've been advised by members here that the few days post Thanksgiving are the sales, and complete madness.

I'm putting together our itinerary, and keeping that in mind, particularly for those first 3 days - Friday, Saturday & Sunday, to try and avoid the busiest shopping areas. I'm not entirely sure where we should be avoiding, I assume Midtown etc.

Obviously I'm aware that the entire city is always busy and bustling, but would like some suggestions of areas we could go over that weekend that might be less chaotic.

These are the rough guidelines, in no particular order, that we are planning - just not sure which day to allocate for each, and would appreciate some help, especially for the first 3 days. (And also any area I haven't listed that we *must* do.) We will have our nearly 6 year old daughter with us.

A - Central Park (+ Museums, Zoo etc)
B - Circle Line cruise, Intrepid museum
C - Liberty Ferry, South St Seaport area
D - Rockefeller Centre (inc Rockettes show)
E - Brooklyn
F - Harlem, Upper West Side
G - Roosevelt Island Tram, then explore 5th Ave
H - East Village, Greenwich Village
I - Galleries, Museums
J - Shopping
