List of things to do in 24 hours in New York City. This is a whirlwind taste of the city. Best recommended for those who just want good food, drinks, a show and maybe a view or two. You may need to take a cab or experience the subway. Once you get to Times Sqaure you can walk everywhere.
After arriving in the city stop by Macy's and enjoy the windows and explore the store. This is always a great place to shop but also to just "window shop". Not all Macy's are a like and New York City is a great store.
The Chelsea Market is a great place to stop to have a snack or lunch. Explore the many shops. I have found that this is a great place to pick up things for the kitchen that you normally cannot find in your hometown. I like getting herbs for cooking.
Stop by the ticket both to select a Broadway show for later in the evening. Best to go early as the line may become a little long if the weather is good. While there explore Times Square and take a few pictures.
Have lunch at this diner which is close to Times Square. The waiters and waitresses sing while you eat. This is a great place for a nice lunch and to hear some really great singing. I love this place. It is great for breakfast, lunch, dinner or a after show snack.
If the kids are with you then skip this however if everyone is an adult this is a great place to hit about 40 minutes before the sun starts to go down. The restaurant is at the top of the Marriott Marquee. The bar/restaurant make one full turn every hour. The views are great and it is nice to have a drink and just have a good conversation about the day. The restaurant has a buffet that is very expensive. The buffet is very good however with the price tag you may want to grab a hot dog from a street vendor or try fast food. Have a drink enjoy the view for an hour, watch the sun go down.
