The smart way to see New York?

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone. We are two Brits arriving in New York in April to start a six week road trip finishing in Texas where we have friends. We will have four days in New York ( our third visit) and have been busy pinching ideas from all over this site. Thank you!
Some information: my girlfriend and I are just sixty and very fit. We are interested in walking, music, photography, watching, learning and enjoy travelling by bus.We are not bothered about fine dining, tourist hot spots, Broadway plays and visiting every museum.
I guess we will take the Staten Island Ferry, walk the Highline and the Brooklyn Bridge, visit Central Park and Grand Central Station. I would love any advice on the following:
Good areas to walk and photograph -parks, river, waterfront etc.
Good areas for buskers and just watching life go by.
Are there free places to get views of the city without going to ESB or TOTR?
A bar with good beers and music or great jukebox.
Stores,delis, cafes, markets where we can buy/eat good local food. Sue and I cannot spend 6 weeks eating burgers, barbecue, shakes and pastries - much as we'd love to!
I hope this gives you some flavour of what we're into and by the way we are likely to be staying midtown although that's not fixed. To be honest I would welcome any ideas that you are kind enough to mention. Thank you.
