Quick trip to NYC with 16 YO DD - a few questions

Jump to last reply

Thanks to adu and starrs, for some great tips, but I don't want to hijack the holiday thread so I'm starting a new one because I have a few questions.

We arrive at LGA and are staying near Times Square so we will be cabbing in. If our plane arrives on time, do you think we would have time to squeeze in a show on Broadway? I know we are taking our chances, but I hesitate to buy in advance, in case or flight is delayed? Is there a good place to buy last minute tickets?

About the New York Pass, I was thinking of getting it, because it includes admission to many of the museums, but someone mentioned that at these museums you can just pay anything you want. Is that true?? The admission price on the Met Website says $25 and doesn't mention that you can name your own price.

It also includes the HopObHopOff tours. Given our short time period (two full days) I think that might be a good way for us to see a lot in a short period of time. We are seeing Book of Mormon the first night, the second night is still open. The main things we want to see are the Met and the Cloisters, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island and Times Square (DD is a Broadway buff). If time, she really wants to go to Hoboken (!) to see the bakery from Cake Boss. That one is not high on my list, but just in case, how long does it take to get to Hoboken?

Thanks!!! Running out right now, I'll check back in a while! :)
