East coast tour - Part1: NYC

Jump to last reply

Aloha to all of you,

as we - meaning my better half and I (both in our late twenties) - are planning a four week trip to the east coast of the US, I'd love to hear some suggestions regarding our itinerary. Basically, we'll kick off with five nice days in NYC, next heading towards Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington DC, taking a day-trip over to the Niagara Falls before we spend about two and a half more weeks in Florida. As covering all of the stuff in one big topic would be messy, I'd rather go bit by bit and start with NYC:

NYC is obviously the easiest to gather information on (I've been there once before). We'll have five full days to enjoy the big apple. As we arrive on a Saturday, we highly tend towards doing the typical touristic sights not before Monday. It should save us some time at least. Also, we'll be a bit more flexible as to the weather conditions that way.

Day 1:
Brooklyn Bike Tour
China Town/Little Italy or SoHo
Chelsea Market
High Line
with some possible shopping inbetween
Times Square

Day 2:
The MeT
Central Park
RFC

Day 3:
Statue of Liberty
OneWTC (hopefully it'd be open by then)
9/11 Memorial
Union Square
Flat Iron

Day 4:
Statan Island Ferry round trip
Greenwich
Grand Central
Broadway show

Day 5:
ESB
St. Patrick's Cathedral
Central Park
Harlem/Bronx/Cloisters

I'd love to hear comments and suggestions regarding our itinerary. Also, I'd like your take on only walking by/or skipping the Chrysler building, Washington Square, the Public Library.

I know people say either RFC or ESB, however, both feature different views and seem great for a first time visitor.

As to day one and China Town vs Little Italy vs Soho: That's definately a part, I'd need help on. Basically it should only suit as some kind of connection between Brooklyn and Chelsea/High Line. If anybody suggested anything different, I'd surely reconsider.

Day five would require the same treatment with regard to Harlem/Bronx/Cloisters. I've heard good stuff about either. Any recommendations?

Last but not least, I plan on having a night's view of the city from Brooklyn, not yet knowing where we'll be staying at. If any of your New Yorker's could point out a good connection towards the end of a specific day, that would really be appreciated.
