The trip began whilst we were confined to our hotel room in the DR for 24 hours whilst Hurricane Maria swept through. Luckily whilst still having Wi-Fi we saw that there was a sale on for flights to NYC in 2018. A city we have always wanted to visit but never got round to planning (living in the UK much more convenient to fly to a host of European cities within 2 hours) we decided that the money saved on this holiday due to lack of trips etc. due to the weather we would book NYC for March.
Back in the UK it was straight on to TA for hotel advice – so many options I really didn’t know where to start. In the end we opted for the Best Western Premier Herald Square, a small hotel on W36th Street with easy access to the sights in Mid Town & a few subway lines within a few minutes walk. a separate review will follow
Our visit was from Sat 17th March – 21st March 2018.
For the next few months I was a daily visitor to the NYC Forum picking up hints & tips, along with YouTube posts & Time Out articles.
A big Thank You to all those who post on the forums & help out with advice, itinerary suggestions etc. without this invaluable source of info we would never have made the most of our short trip.
Here is a summary of our days in NYC, hope you enjoy reading.
