Random NYC trip questions

Jump to last reply

1. We want to walk the Brooklyn Bridge toward Manhattan. Did anyone feel like it was scary? I mean the height? Or is it a solid type surface without holes looking down? We will have our 10 year old with us and don't want her to freak out half way across.

2. We will be driving back to Newark airport area rental car lot to drop off car from Pine Bush, NY. I want to schedule car service to pick us up and deliver us to hotel in Manhattan. Do I guesstimate time of arrival or wait until we get there to call?

3. If we only have half of one day for a museum, which should it be? I think too much art would get boring for girls. Natural History? Does the MET have all the artifacts from Egypt, etc? (sorry for my ignorance) We are planning to go to Brooklyn Botanical Garden, is the Brooklyn Museum worth the time?

4. Should I buy each person a Metro Card or could we share 2? I noticed it said that if we put over $10 on each, you get a little bit of bonus.

Thanks everyone!
