NYC Itinerary Help

Jump to last reply

Headed to NYC with DH in late April. I've been 4-5 times before, but this is his first trip. On my first trip, I crammed everything I could into a VERY full 6 days. On subsequent trips, we just meandered and enjoyed the city, so I really don't remember the most logical way to do things to avoid backtracking. We will have 3 days and one evening, and the wish list of things to see is below. I know there are no musuems - he's not museum person . . . :P

ARRIVAL DAY: Arrive Newark 4:00 pm; get to the city; check into hotel located near Times Square; wander Times Square and have dinner. Anything else??

DAY 1:
Ellis Island
Statue of Liberty
9/11 Memorial; WTC; Battery Park
Would love to incorporate the SI Ferry into this day if possible.

DAY 2: Activities must be completed in time to be back at hotel for 5 to freshen up and make pre-show dinner and show.
China Town
Walk Brooklyn Bridge (Maybe this is better on DAY 3? Evening???)
Greenwich Village for pizza?? anything else? recommendations for pizza?
Empire State Building outside only and is this even necessary if we see it from the top of the Rock?
Grand Central Station
Library exterior
7:30 - Musical - not flexible, tickets purchased

DAY 3:
Central Park and The Plaza Hotel
Rockefeller Plaza/Center (outside only - no tours) and Top of the Rock – go close to dusk so we can see day views and night views
Radio City Music Hall (exterior for photo op)
St Patrick's Cathedral
Walk 5th Avenue

DAY 4: Morning Departure

I need suggestions as to the most time effective manner in which to do these activities. I'm very open to moving things around (or cutting, if necessary) in order to get the most out of the trip. Basically, he enjoys walking, looking at buildings, eating, and exploring various parts of the city, but not really going to "attractions" if that helps.

Thank you in advance for all the help!!
