New York City first-timer requests itinerary advice.

Jump to last reply

Hi travel buddies! I am soon on my way to NYC for the first time, traveling with my husband. We live in Oregon and are going to Boston for a few days and then on to NYC. So excited! I would love any suggestions and advice you may have on my itinerary as follows:
May 3rd, Fri: Arrive in NYC by Acela train (2:45), check in Hotel Iroquois, Manhatten, Book of Mormon show @ 8:00. View Times Square.
May 4th, Sat: Sept. 11 Memorial, Tribute Center, 120 Liberty St., then Central Park, Tavern on the Green for lunch?
May 5th, Sun: Frick Collection Museum , Tour Rockefeller Center , Top of the Rock.
May 6th , Mon: Walk across Brooklyn Bridge, ride Staten Island Ferry
May 7th, Tues: Real NY Tours, Big Apple Tour (6 hr. walking tour).
May 8th, Wed: Open Day, Jersey Boys show at 7:00 pm
May 9th, Thur: The Cloisters Museum (9:30 am – 5:15pm), Tryon Park
May 10th , Fri: The MET art museum (closed Mon.,9:30am to 9:00pm), NYC Ballet
May 11th, Sat: Catch flight home from JFK Airport, leave in evening.
Does this seem reasonable? Any other suggestions of things to see/do? We are so disappointed not to go to Ellis Island, Statue of Liberty but it is going to be closed for a while yet according the website! Thank you all so much in advance for any input!
Happy Travels!!!
