Can't believe it's only a week before we go, so excited I can hardly contain myself.
Thanks to this place and the great advice by all the experts and others, I have built up a rough itinerary and some must-do things. I have booked a couple of activities already designed to appeal to my boy, but I'm going to enjoy them too for sure:
Knicks game (yay!!) and a Hip Hop walking tour in Harlem (Hush tours).
Also booked for the Ground Zero Workshop (obviously this doesn't come under the category of 'enjoyment' but it wouldn't feel right to come to NY and not acknowledge and pay respects).
All the activities on the agenda at the moment (MOMA & the Met; walking Brooklyn Bridge, pizza at Grimaldi's; Central Park; TOTR; Greenwich Village; Staten Island ferry; NYPD museum....etc) are all daytime things. I've earmarked places to eat for lunch / on the run but I have nothing planned for the evening (apart from Knicks game).
Can anyone help?? I really wanted a Broadway show but the prices are just beyond the budget. Eating out in the evening is going to be a bit restricted pricewise too, unfortunately, and usually I think we will need to eat in the hotel (we have a one-bed suite with kitchenette).
Can anyone recommend some good (low-cost!) activities in the evening? He's too young for bars, obviously, but maybe there are some cafes or other places that would be suitable, just to people-watch, soak up atmosphere..?
He's pretty mature in many ways and won't be in to kid stuff, and has a scarily well-developed sense of humour (if that helps)
thanks in advance for any help.
