NY Itinerary

At last I've made out an itinerary for our trip 4-11 December. If anyone recommends any changes or extras I'd be glad to hear them. I have only used the tips received in this forum and some I have copied. We are staying at Hotel Beacon.

Arrival Saturday 1330hrs. Thought we'd walk to Empire State Bldg and look around Macey's (taking our passports for our free 11percent discount) and then to Times Square. Someone had recommended to eat at Joe Allens, so we thought we'd try there. What sort of place is it, pub, rest?

Day 1: Lower Manhattan

Staton Island Ferry (free)

Statue of Liberty

Brooklyn Bridge

China Town

Little Italy

SoHo (good for shopping)

Ground Zero (to pay our respects)

Next Day - Lower Mid Town

Empire State Bldg.

Union Square

East Village (good shops between 5th and 11th streets)

East Village

Greenwich Village (good shopping here)


Next day - Mid Town Manhattan

Central Park

Grand Central Stn. (Juniors for cheesecake)

Rockerfeller Centre

Times Square (burger at 'Virglus' west 45th around corner from Toys'R'us

Day trip on bus to New Jersey Gardens for shopping 'til we drop

Also some recommended Manhattab Diner for Cheesecake, but cant remember where it is. Also where is Joe Allens.

Hope I have everything covered.

You will need 3 days to visit all the places on your Day 1 itinerary.

I think its a bit overly ambitious. No way you will be able to do all that each day.

Jersey Gardens bus fare is about $15 round trip and I didnt think it was worth it.

If you are going to be downtown by....the World Trade Centre site, go to Century 21.
