HI, how far is upper east side to the major attractions? I'm coming to new york in february for 5 nights and staying in 500 E 62 st. I've read reviews on this site of our hotel (Bentley) and they seem good, but quite a few say its out of the way and quite a walk to the subway. How long would it take to walk to, say, Times Square from where we're staying? We're coming from Scotland for a once in a lifetime trip and don't fancy spending ages a day travelling? Also is there a bus maybe, that would take us to Midtown? How long would this take to get there?
Also, could you recommend good places to eat (i'm a veggie and like the pretend meat, also love indian and italian, and would love to try a great macaroni cheese)
Any other tips about what to do in nyc would be apprecicated!
