My boyfriend and l are in New York over New Years and only have 4 full days to try and squeeze things in! We would like to fit in the following things but l don't know how much time we need for each? Also the 4 days are the 30th Dec -2nd Jan so it's likely we will be pretty useless on the 1st!
Top of the Rock
Liberty Island - ferry and statue or just ferry [how long for each and is it worth going up or just seeing from ferry?]
Shopping - essential for us Brits especially as the sales will be on!
Musuem of Modern Art [if we have time]
I was thinking Central Park and Brooklyn Bridge would probably be best for the 1st as it's just walking and the fresh air will probably help!? And perhaps the 2nd for shopping - will the shops be a lot busier as it is a Saturday or are they always the same at the time of year?
I am not sure which things to group together on which days and what days will be busier etc. Any help would be most appreciated! Many thanks
Oh also - we fly out of Newark at 8am on the Sunday, we are staying in Chelsea. How long should we allow to get to the airport [l was thinking a taxi would probably be the best option]? If we leave at say 5am will an hour be sufficient to get there?
