What can the guys do for 4 hours?

We are 4 couples visiting NYC in 3 weeks. The 4 girls are ditching the guys for a few hours going on the Sex and the City tour.

Any suggestions for blokey things the 4 guys can do whilst we are on the tour? All are about 50ish give or take a couple of years!

We're really excited about our trip and not long to go now!

Thanks in advance.

Maybe you can send them shopping in J&R

or, if they feel like being kids:

Are you sure they won't be able to fill in the time themselves?

Depends on the blokes, their interests and perhaps the day of the week and the time of day you're going. I think your tour starts near the Plaza hotel near the south end of Central Park. They might just like to have a walk through the park or see if there's a walking tour that day or even rent some bicyles and ride around.

The Intrepid Air & Space Museum might appeal to them.

If they're into sports, spending some time at Chelsea Piers either hitting golf balls or trying to hit some baseballs.

If it's on a Sat. afternoon, the Literary Pub Crawl is fun.

Or they could do

Or some other walking tour that might interest them.

Have them go to Williamsburg for a pub crawl. They get to walk around a Brooklyn nabe and have a few pints. Now what could be bad about that. To get there, take the subway to 14th Street and take the L one stop into Bklyn to Bedford Ave. Here's a guide to pubs of Williamsburg.

A tour of the brooklyn brewery? if they play golf maybe a visit to the driving range at chelsea piers? trip to the yankie stadium?

I think it is good to have a few suggestions - When I was ill on one of our last trips and had to remain in the hotel for the day, my husband went out on his own and came back with a tattoo!!

Hi guys - these are all great suggestions (apart from the tattoo!:) We didn't know these places existed.

We've never been to NYC and some of us have never been to the US either.

Very excited now.
