Looking for suggestions for a few hours in NYC during free time on bus trip

Jump to last reply

Hi! I'll be travelling to NYC this Saturday on a bus trip with a youth theater group to see Mary Poppins. We'll be arriving around 10 am and participating in a "behind the scenes" tour of the theater which will last approx. an hour or so. When that ends, we have about an hour and a half free time before we have to return to the theater for the show.

It's not a lot of time, but it's certainly enough time to do something. So, I'm looking for some suggestions on ideas for what we could do. It would be myself and my 10 year old daughter. I'll also have my mother with us, who is 65 - but she's pretty much up for anything. We're really looking for things to appeal to my daughter, since the trip is for her.

I think when we leave on Saturday morning, we'll be getting a list of things in the area, but I'd like to have a plan before we leave. Even some of the "less touristy" type things as well. And on the "more touristy" type things - How far are we from places like the American Girl Store? Is there a good resource online to print out a map? etc...

Thanks!
