My wife and I are visiting New York on the 18th June for a long weekend, and I wondered if I could pick the brains if some of you kind folk out there..:-)
We are staying at the Novotel on W52nd street, just off Times Square, I was wondering if anyone could recommend any good restaurants nearby both for evening meal and breakfast, I particularly would like to try a typical Diner style American breakfast and a Joey Tribbiani style Meatball sandwich, being a bit of a fatty...;-)
Also we would like to pay our respects at Ground Zero, is the best way to this via the 9/11 memorial or can we go down there on our own? We have got NY explorer pass(pick 3) and I really would like to go to the Top of the Rock & the Empire State Building(one in the evening and one in the daytime) and use our remaining pass for a 24hr hop on hop off bus pass, we don't really want to use a pass for 9/11 memorial if we can go on our own..?
Many many thanks in Advance for your help
