NYC in a day with teenagers (boys), suggestions please?

Jump to last reply

Okay, so I might be a little crazy, but my two teenage boys wanted to go to NYC and I found the three us a way to get there at a reasonable price. Now, all I need to know is the best advise to see Manhattan (on a modest budget) between the hours of 8am - 10pm. I want this to be an enjoyable crazy time for all of us. I know my time is short, but if I plan ahead, I think it can be one of the most wonderful "Summer" day trips the boys will ever remember.

Which is better Top of the Rock Observation or Empire State Bldg, or is it worth seeing the view from both locations? Is the Sony Wonder Technology Lab as bad as I have read in some of the reviews? What about the Staten Island Ferry - is it really FREE?

And as far as food, we want to try a NY Bagel, City Street Hot Dog, Pizza and personally I want a Reuben - any suggestions on where to get the best?

My biggest problem is finding things to do between 5 - 10 pm, since the museums all close early, any suggestions?

Thanks for your help,
Sincerely,
1st Timer to NYC
