Heads up all current posters (and for those of you who are new to this forum or if you have "been away" for any reason). Just to let you all know that I will be returning to New York in approximately 212 hours (but who's counting)!!
I don't usually have an itinerary but this time thought I would book some things before I arrive and this is it so far:
Saturday 9th June
Arrive at JFK 6.00 p.m. Airlink to RCA. Check in, freshen up and head out to TOTR for sunset (or not).
Sunday 10th June
8.30 a.m. St Mary's on Grand Street
11.00 a.m. Big Onion Walking Tour of Jewish Lower East Side
1.30 p.m. Tenement Museum Getting By Tour
Monday 11th June
10.00 a.m. New York Party Shuttle Grand Tour (this is to overcome any lead in my legs from jet lag and to conserve energy for later endeavours).
6.30 p.m. Pete's Tavern for the most exciting thing I will be doing this time - meeting total strangers from this forum for drinks and dinner:-) Just a gentle reminder to again appease my mother - Axe murderers and psychopaths are asked to avoid Pete's Tavern on this night (other paths may lurk though).

Walk back across the Brooklyn Bridge
Family dinner at either Dallas BBQ or Virgils

Sunday 17th June

Everything else will just happen and, of course, there always has to be something left on the "to do" list. Also plenty of spaces for more drinks and dinners:-)
