What are you doing on the 26th? Things are open in NYC. WANNA go to Katz's? It'll be busy on Christmas Day as will all the restaurants in Chinatown and MOVIES will be open. The 26th will be a holiday and a major shopping day. Wall Street will be closed on the 26th so I would save that and Ellis Island for the 27th.

Have a read of my recent trip report. We packed a lot into our first full day, starting at TOTR and fitting in Brooklyn, Wall Street, Staten Island, WTC site, Central Park...

Then on your one day to sight see I would do Downtown / Financial District-

I would start as early as possible catching the ferry to Ellis Island-

*TIPS*(for Ellis Island)-

1) Get "reserved time only" tickets (you will be in an expedited line- flex tickets get put in the line with others just showing up- so don't get "Three day flex" tickets)

2) The security lines build up as the day passes so get the 8am tickets if possible-if not the earliest reserved time possible.

3) you will be leaving from Battery park in Manhattan so get there a half hour before your scheduled time.

Next you could lunch at Bridge Cafe- Go see the south street sea port- go see the NYSE and the Nations first Capital (Wall St. & Broadway) then you could go towards the Hudson and see the World Financial Centers Winter Garden (w/ a view of the WTC rebuilding)-

Head back to the hotel and try dinner here at the Revolving Restaurant in Times Square-

Enjoy!

I think it's more likely that the OP is talking about Fraunces Tavern.

PS also the Tenement Museum is a must see for a history buff

its 2 apts from the 1860s equipped as they were then--the docent does a great job make res---then head over to Katz's deli--its a few blcoks away. Get a pastrami on rye, potatoe panckes, kosher piclke and a NY Egg cream
