Finally having my time off work next week and leaving for NYC! But, being extremely busy lately, I haven’t even had a chance to lock up what is worth seeing and doing in the city. Of course there is the obvious Empire State and Statue of Liberty, but other than that? What is worth spending time on?
Quite a big part of the trip is shopping, so we are thinking of using one day at an outlet mall. I read there is a big one about an hour (and a half) or so north of the city? Is this a recommended one, or are there better ones closer by?
Other than that we don’t have any particular preferences. Just want to see the best of what NY has to offer. Walking in nice neighborhoods or shopping streets, and spending time in cozy cafes and restaurants is a big part of that I think.
We’re arriving Wednesday night and leaving Monday night, which gives us 4 ½ days. Any suggested schedule for these days?
I read about the New York pass. A 3 day pass is 140$ if we buy it online, but I’m not sure well actually be benefitting from this… Any experiences?
Of course, traveling in March makes you kind of dependent on the weather as well, the long term forecast now says that Thursday is going to be good, so maybe this is a good day for a Manhattan sightseeing boat trip? This takes about 3 hour doesn’t it?
Well, as a first timer, I appreciate highly if you share your personal favorites of the city :-)
