Hi everyone! We are travelling to NYC from March 14-18. We've been there 4 times so we've done the basic touristy stuff already. We are staying at the Sofitel and here are our plans so far, I'm looking for some insight on filling in the gaps:
Thursday: arrive JFK around 4pm, taxi to hotel, drop of bags, etc. Dinner at Becco at 7pm, drinks at the W in times square after maybe?
Friday: not sure yet -- need help! perhaps Central Park in the morning for a stroll? Tiffany's? perhaps take a subway to Brooklyn to explore and have lunch? Walk the bridge back? Reservations at Dos Caminos SoHo at 6:15, Comedy Cellar 8:45pm show.
Saturday: my 25th birthday! Light breakfast, Food truck tour of midtown booked through Sidewalks of New York at 12:30 for a couple of hours (no calories on your birthday!). Maybe try to catch some of the Paddy's Day parade? All afternoon is free -- looking for suggestions here. Top of the Rock at 6:15 for sunset, reservations at One if by Land, Two if by Sea at 8:15.
Sunday: drink in an Irish bar all day? no plans for this day at all -- please help!
Neither of us are big museum or broadway show buffs, we just like to explore, take it all in and people watch. We also love to try different types of food, not too concerned about price. Any suggestions would be appreciated!! :) only 2 more weeks - the countdown is on!
