We are a family of 7 travelling to NYC. We will be driving, so we have a minivan. We have 5 teens with us. We will be staying in Paramus NJ because we needed more room and because of the savings. I need help planning the days events. I'm not sure about distance and time needed. We will be able to spend 3 full days in NYC - Monday thru Wednesday. I have already booked a Yankees game for Wed night. Some of the sights we want to see are:
Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island - I heard they are still closed:(
In place I want to take the Staten Island Ferry for a closer look
Ground Zero/ World trade Center/911 Memorial
St. Paul, St, John, or St. Patrick Cathedrals
Free tour by foot: Either a Lower Manhattan 10am -12 tour,
Mid Manhattan 10am -12 tour or an All in One all day tour. Maybe even two of these if needed.
I am open to any and all suggestions. The kids just want to get a sense of NYC
