NYC Day Trip... Need Neighborhood Ideas!

Jump to last reply

I am planning a day trip to NYC with a 13 year old girl. We live 45 minutes away and have been several times, so we have done many of the touristy attractions. We are going to Times Square for the Harry Potter exhibit at Discovery Times Square, but we don't want to spend any more time there than we have to. (She hates Times Square and does not like the super crowded/busy atmosphere of the area).

I was thinking of hopping on the subway somewhere downtown'ish to do lunch/shopping/bakery/anything 13 year old girls like to do. Any idea in terms of a neighborhood that offers these types of things, without the insanity of Times Square, while still being fun? We tend to always go to the Midtown area when we go into the city, but would like to expand our horizons to other areas with more character. Thank you so much!
