Most Efficent way to see New York

What would be more a convenient way to transport around New York to see all the landmarks etc.

Would going independent on foot and taking subway,public transport good?

Or would doing the Grey line tours, hop on hop off tour the best way to go?

What do you all recommend?

As well, where do I find a map with all the attractions located?

Thank you

It is hard to answer this question without more information. You would need to determine what sites interest you most and it would help to know how long you are staying.

The Gray Lines tours offer different options. The experience is probably good but if you don't mind taking the trains you can see the major attractions without the tour. I recommend the following.

1 - Central Park

2 - Empire State Building

3 - A musuem - Metropolitan Musuem or Art, The Cloisters, Museum of Television and Radio, Guggenheim, Musuem of Natural History are good choices.

4 - Statue of Liberty

5 - Neighborhoods like Greenwich Village, Chinatown, and Little Italy

6 - A Broadway Play would be nice to see. A Chorus Line, The Lion King, and Beauty and the Beast are good. Avoid Hairspray

Have a good trip and let us know how it goes.

This is the more general forum for the entire state of New York.

You'll have more luck if you post this question on the New York City forum. You can also read the FAQ "sticky" post at the top of the New York City forum. It includes a list of "must see" things and answers to most of your questions.

I'd also suggest to get a good guide book.
