Trip Report Trip Report: 2 nights in NYC, three Broadway shows

Jump to last reply

Thanks to all of you who responded to my questions in planning for this weekend. If really turned out well, though our plans were changed by the forecast of a rainy Sunday.

Arrived at LGA at 11 AM and used Carmel Car Service which was prompt delivering us to the London NYC Hotel where we've stayed in the past. Walked via Madison and Fifth Avenues to the Central Park Boathouse for a late lunch (fair food, lovely setting). Then took a bus down Fifth Avenue to Eataly (just looked around) and then walked the Highline which was pleasant. Dinner was a last minute decision: Bobby Van's Steakhouse on West 50th, for their pretheater dinner which was very good. Saw Catch Me If you Can which we enjoyed.

Saturday morning we took the A train to Washington Heights to see where I had lived sixty-plus years ago. It still is a nice neighborhood. Also went to Fort Tryon Park where the New Leaf restaurant is. However, we were too early for lunch, so we went back to midtown and had a wonderful meal at Philippe. We then walked to the theater district and saw a matinee: Follies which was EXCELLENT. Pre theater dinner at Osterio del Circo (delicious) and then saw Sister Act, very upbeat and energizing, lots of fun.

Sunday (today) was a washout in terms of our original plans but we did go shopping, had lunch (at Bloomingdale's 40 Carrots) before taking a cab back to LGA.

One of the things we like about the London NYC is its location so close to the theater district, shopping, and Central Park. We also purchased a Metrocard which worked out well.

Once again, thanks for all your advice.
