New York City Itinerary and Restaurant Help

Jump to last reply

Hi, My husband, 17 year old daughter and friend, and I are visiting New York City in July from a thursday morning to Sunday late afternoon. We have all travelled together before, and from a young age for the girls. They are actually open to most cuisine options, and have wide interests. Here is our rough draft, early itinerary:

Thursday arrive into city at 11:30am:
Drop bags at Marriott Marquis
Have lunch
Grand Central
Visit Empire State Bldg
John's Pizzaria for dinner

Top of the Rock
NBC tour
Shopping along 5th avenue
Balkanikas for dinner
See Mama Mia

9/11 Memorial
Visit Battery Park and Harbor Cruise
Lunch wherever we wander in
Central Park--rent bikes
Dinner Pongori

Mass at St. Patrick
Metropolitan Museum of Art
Late lunch

Does any of this seem to be too much in too little time?

We're planning to walk from one place to another Thursday. Is that too ambitious?

Does anyone have a lunch recommendation for a place on the way from the Marriott to the library?
Will it be easy to find a lunch place at Battery Park?

Does anyone have a late lunch recommendation for Sunday afternoon? I think so far we have chosen fairly moderately priced restaurants so far, so we have some room in the budget for something nice if it is available.

Please weigh in on the restaurant choices, and let me know if I've picked something bad! Thanks for any help. I haven't travelled in a while, but the last trip I took was planned with wonderful suggestions from Fodorites! pp
