Visited NYC with my 74 y.o. mom for 5 days, as a Christmas present to her. Her interests are mainly in fine art, music and theatre, mine in same areas plus food, so that was our focus. We had the most marvelous time. Can't wait to go back, like everyone else. The time I got to share with my mom was an absolute treasure. It was a (compared to many others) fairly low key pace, due to her health issues, but that made for a pretty relaxing time. And boy, I loved the snow!
I will break my "report" up into little bytes, so as not to have a really long initial submission, but did want to say that many of the recommendations we got from the NYC forum were incredibly invaluable and really contributed to a magical trip. Thanks to all!
