Scheduling help in NYC

Jump to last reply

We are only going to be in NYC for 1 1/2 days and here is my tentative schedule of events (free to suggestions or changes). We have 2 - 13 year olds
Friday afternoon / evening
Take Staten Island Ferry to view and take pictures of Statute of Liberty
Walk to WTC sight and St Peters (does anyone know approx how far that walk is???)
Take subway to Rockefeller Center
Do Top of the Rock for pictures
View Radio City Music Hall, etc.
Back to NJ Hotel (easiest way from this area????)
Saturday -
See Broadway & Times Square....maybe go to FAO Schwartz, Hershey Store, etc.

Is that too much for Friday afternoon / evening? Should I watch where I am around 5:00 due to rush hour, etc. Traffic, subways, etc. very crowded????

Where is there some great shopping (not expensive) where the girls can shop and get neat items in these areas????? Also - any great food suggestions for quick dining...don't want to waste alot of time eating...I know there are street vendors, but thought I would ask for other suggestions.

Taking Path from NJ to NYC and back!!!!
Does this itenerary sound possible??? Wanted to save Saturday for shopping and Times Square - but am willing to change it up however I need to!

All suggestions are welcome!!!!!!
