NYC - 5 days / 5 adventures/ excursions

Jump to last reply

Hi NYC fans! I'm heading back for a week and will be solo during the week. I'm trying to plan an adventure/excursion a day for the weekdays - focusing on things I've not seen or done before. On my list of possibilities -

- Walking the Brooklyn Bridge, one way, toward Manhattan
- Walking the High Line
- Heading up to the Cloisters (finally)
- Walking around Harlem (using santamonica's experiences as a starting point)
- ??? not sure. Looking for ideas

I want to use the bus more this trip than in the past. I'd like to add in something interesting in the area. I like tours and would love to fit in one of St. John the Divine during my Harlem day - http://www.stjohndivine.org/pe_forthcoming.html
I'll want to stop in Fishs Eddy of course. Can anyone think of something new/different for me to try around the Flatiron / Union Square? I never made it down to Chinatown for dim sum last time. Will have to see if I can go see the Pickle Guys when they are open. They were closed on my last trip, as well as Kossar's. - http://www.kossarsbialys.com/ Maybe a Village/Chinatown wandering day? Any ideas will be appreciated. I've not taken any of the tenement museum walking tours (just the ones in the tenement building) so maybe that would be a good option. Thanks for sharing ideas!
