Foods of NYC Chinatown tour for a senior citizen?

Jump to last reply

Has anyone done this tour, and if so, did you enjoy it? Background: Taking my mother, 75, to NYC for one night. She hasn't been there in over 30 years. I asked her what the top few things she wanted to do were, assuming they would include the 911 Memorial and a show. She had mentioned both of those before, but she has apparently changed her mind, LOL.

She IS very interested in the Tenement Museum, the Doughnut Plant, the Pickle Guy, and possibly The Frick. My husband and I went on the Foods of NYC Greenwich Village tour a few years ago, and it seems like something she'd like, but I think it requires too much standing for too long. The Chinatown tour makes longer, and fewer stops, so I though she might find that interesting. (?)

Mom loves reading and watching documentaries about different cultures, but has never really been a museum goer. She likes classic rock music, LOL, but apparently doesn't want to see a musical (or play). She doesn't like heights, so the TOR is out. I think she would love the cloisters, but I don't think that's practical for such a short trip.

Two days isn't long, but planning is going to be harder than I thought. I read the wonderful "Mama to NY" thread, but my Mom has different tastes, LOL.
