Hi Guys ,
I am first time traveler to NYC from Canada . I am on a long car drive with my family reaching NYC from Philadelphia in my final leg of my journey . I am driving with my wife (33 yrs) , son (5 yrs) Father 64 yrs and mother 60 yrs. I am staying in Queens area and have decided to use the subway in NYC ( and not drive my car ) after reading in the NYC forums about difficulties of driving and convenience of subway . I am reaching on 5 th June at noon and leaving NYC on 8 th June noon back to Ottawa.
## Can someone well versed with the layout of the city and subway , help me plan out the tour for 3 days so that i can see most attractions without traveling back and forth to see them ? Importantly , i want to get the sequence of my travel right on Subway so that my time is not wasted ...
FYI , i intend to see Statue of liberty ( i know its closed due post Sandy hurricane , but want to see it from the boat ride ), Empire state building observatory , Central park , Rockfeller centre , Brooklyn bridge, Manhattan skyline , Top of the rock , Times square , grand central terminus , Staten island ferry , Grand central terminal , The Cathedral of St. John the Divine etc .
I am happy to accommodate any other places you guys think are a must watch for us as a family provided i can make them in those 3 days. However , if its something i need to absolutely see then i might extend my stay by another day , but you guys have to tell me if its worth extending the stay .
I thank you guys in advance for reading and replying to this question .
