Leaving for NYC tomorrow. Need a game plan!

Jump to last reply

We have an last minute opportunity to go to NY tomorrow staying for three nights.
We (DH, DS-14, and I are staying at the Marriott Courtyard Times Square West. I would have loved a boutique hotel in a quieter neighborhood, but since I planned last vacay and chose EVERYTHING, DH won.

Some of our interests are...

9/11 Memorial
Museum of Natural History (big fans of Night at the Museum)
Bryant Park
Saks 5th Christmas windows
Today Show (we watch it every day and we are geeks)
Top of the Rock
Play? Rush/Lottery or TCKTS? Don't have our hearts set on any show in particular but would love to see a musical

Does anyone know about these free tours? I remember a woman on an old AOL NYC tourist forum who gave free walking tours for the love of her city.

While we've been to the city a few times, I don't know it well and don't know how to map it out.
No art museums this time. And no shopping although visiting stores like Dylan's Candy or FAO might be fun.

How about a good deli or restaurants near us? Actually are very happy to venture past our hotel area for eats.

Thank you in advance for my rather frantic request
