New York - Itinerary Help

Jump to last reply

Can anyone please comment on this itinerary?

We've left out Coney Island, and museums (unless it is raining) as most travellers in the group are not big museum fans. For background, we have 3 1/2 days now, in May - mid-teens and adults/family, friends:

DAY 1

Arrive airport - dinner 6:30-7:30

TOTR sunset - schedule for 7:30-8:00 (how important is the tour & can it be done in late evening)?

hang out back at hotel (everyone will be tired)

DAY 2 (F)

Central Pk - zoo in the AM

look for hot dogs for lunch

after lunch row boats, look for buskers

hang out park in afternoon (bikes?)

subway to the Bronx from Central Pk.

dinner near Bronx (or at Yankee stadium)

Yankees game in the evening

DAY 3 (Sa.)

Empire state building in a.m.

5th ave. walk to the Library (see reading room)

window shop Tiffany's etc.

42 street to GCT for lunch

check out Chrysler building & UN

Bryant Pk

dinner on route to Times Sq.

theatre night

DAY 4 (Su.)

SOL cruise and sightseeing, incl. lunch

Via Wall Street to Greenwich

Check out West village shops etc.

nice dinner to end the trip

more strolling in Greenwich or

take a sunset cruise

Is the sunset cruise on the last night redundant if we are already taking the SOL cruise included in the tickets?

Can anyone recommend any good restaurants that would fit well with the interary? Something casual the first night, something trendy for the theatre night in the right area? Something extra special in the W. Village (or nearby) for the last night?

Any other tips or suggestions would be great.

Anything in particular to see and do in Central Pk. on a Friday in May?

Any must-sees/must-dos for Greenwich and/or the West Village?
Are things arranged well enough? Is anything missing, etc.?

Thank you!
