I posted last week with a rough itinerary and got some good suggestions. Someone posted about hopstop.com, what a great site! I've been all over that site trying to figure out directions and what order I should do things in. I'm having trouble with one day of my trip and thought I'd see if any of you could help me out once again.
On Saturday, May 5th, we want to leave our hotel and go directly to get the ferry to SOL and Ellis Island. I want to do this first thing, since I'm sure it will be crowded and will take several hours. After that we'd like to visit Ground Zero & Century 21, then go by South St. Seaport to check the TKTS booth. We also want to take a water taxi over to Brooklyn, eat at Grimaldi's, and walk back over the Brooklyn Bridge to Manhattan then take a subway back to the hotel at W. 50th & Broadway.
The problem is, when I try to put Brooklyn Bridge or Fulton Ferry in on hopstop.com, it says it doesn't recognize the address. Can somebody tell me what order we should do all the above, and what trains we should take as well as what station we take them from, or are all these areas close enough that we could walk from one to the other? Also, is this way too much for one day?considering the fact that we don't know how long SOL will take. Thank you all in advance!
