I'd be very grateful for advice on a couple of queries.
Firstly, I have read the FAQ on Airport transfers but can someone advise about the likely traffic and transfer time. Our flight is scheduled to arrive about midday on Christmas Eve. I would prefer to get in by car or taxi but if it's likely to take an hour and a half, I might just try the train. We are staying at corner of 29th and Park Ave S. Two of us, reasonably fit 40 yr olds with a case each.
Secondly can anyone tell me if the Holiday Shops at Bryant Park are open on Christmas Day. We are having dinner at the Bryant Park Grill and I'm wondering whether it's worth going along a bit early to wander around. I know the skating rink is there. I've tried the website which just says the shops are there until Jan 2nd.
Thanks for any help offered.
