Day trip to NYC - What to do?

Jump to last reply

We have a quick business trip planned in the fall to Washington D.C., with a few days for sightseeing. I was just perusing my AAA book about things to see and do in D.C. when I noticed a paragraph stating that Amtrak has three hour train service to New York City!

I'm from the West Coast, now live in the Midwest and have never been to the Northeastern U.S. before. I was looking forward to touring D.C. sites a bit, but so MANY of them seem to be closed for renovations this year. Now I'm getting kind of excited about seeing New York City, although it would have to be a day trip from D.C., nothing more.

Any suggestions on what to see and do in NYC if we arrive at Penn Station in the morning? Statue of Liberty, Metropolitan Museum, all of those things come to mind, but are they doable in a day? Logistics?

Any ideas appreciated, thanks.
