am new to this and have been reading this forum for weeks now and it has been very helpful but there is still so much I need to know in order to plan out a flexible itinerary!
So would really appreciate some help!
Should I get metrocards for the week for subway and bus use or pay as we go?
Am here with hubby for five nights arriving in NY on the 22nd May staying at the Casablanca should arrive at Times Square approx 3pm leave on memorial Monday so my first question to help plan my days is what time should I aim to leave by taxi to JFK we fly home at 7.30pm ? Will it be busier on Memorial day?
Have one full day already planned could you please check it out to see if its doable and also help me group my other must do things into the following days!
Day 1 arrive at hotel approx 3pm checkin dump bags freshun up head over to central park maybe eat at the Boathouse should I book? then TOTR for sunset if not too tired then times Square
Day 2 1st full day
Centuray 21 then St Pauls then 911 am I right I need to book this?
then on toBattery Park, Staten Island ferry
then water taxi or subway which would you recommend fasest/easiest to Brooklyn Heights and promenade which order to do them are they within walkin distance?
then walk back over bridge, subway back to hotel get ready to watch a show either Jersey boys Wicked or Annie should I book or try for tickets at the TTKS booth? maybe eat at the view should I book or can you recommend some place else for pre show meal and save the view for anther day/eve?
Our other must dos to put in some sort of order for the remaining 4 days are Grand central station ESB (from the ground) TOTR if not done on first day Macy's,Bloomingdales
Ralph Lauren any bargin hunting stores for big and tall men sizes?
River cafe if its open and back over the bridge at night and some maybes to squeeze in somewhere if poss are Delmonicos, maybe a second show on Saturday/Sunday matinee, Carniege Deli,Soho, Grenwich village and history museum oh and the library think thats enough for now! all advice welcome! thanks :)
