NYC Plans - Oct

Jump to last reply

I am planning my first trip to NYC - Oct 16 - 21 with my husband. These are my plans - please be gentle but honest.

Our plane gets in at 11:25 am - hoping to be at The Mansfield by 1:00
NYC Public Library - Bryant Park
The Rock / Radio City
Times Square
Toys R Us

Wondering IF we should go to Empire State building first - it will still be light out - debating to do Empire State Or Top of the Rock OR do Empire during day and Rock at night - since it is close to hotel...

First full day is On Location tour - its TV and Movie tour - I know several people are not fans of tours but we are huge movie buffs and hoping this tour will knock out several of the "yep saw it" but not necessarily have to see inside. After the tour - up in the air - want to see Phantom


Fri -Grand Central Station
Trinity Church
Engine Ladder 10
9/11 Memorial
Statue of Liberty
Little Italy – SoHo – Heath Ledger apt
Washington Square Park*
Empire State*

If the On Location tour takes us to Washington Park and IF we do Empire first day we wont repeat. I know this is tons to do in one day and Grand Central is close to hotel and it can be moved but when planning we would be leaving from Grand Central to 9/11 Memorial

Saturday -Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market
Circle Line tour

Thinking two hour circle line tour - read three hours can be a bit much.

Tea & Sympathy - tea and all things British


Sunday - Museum of Nat History - Central Park - 5th Ave - The Dakota - The Plaza etc.

Monday our plane leaves at 6pm - maybe anything we missed or want to see again.... head to airport at 2pm

We have decided to pay for a car service. Planning to visit Serendipity - highly recommended and Eataly. Open to other food recommendations!!
