We are coming back to New York City this week, (Thursday through Saturday) here is our draft itinerary.
Thursday: arrive on the train at Penn Station, then head to the Empire State Building. We did the Top of the Rock last time. After that grab some New York style pizza. After Lunch we would like to go to the Children's Museum of Manhattan. After the Children's Museum we would like walk around Central Park for a little bit maybe have a picnic on the big lawn. After that head to Penn Station to grab the train back to our hotel.
Friday: arrive at Penn Station, we have tickets for Marry Poppins that night. During the day we are going to do The Central Park Zoo. After that we plan to do a half bus tour of the city. From there we will head to the theater district. If anybody has a recommendation for a kid friendly restaurant that would be great. After the show take the bus back to Penn Station. (I realize the subway is faster but we really want to see the city lights. On a side note is the NJ Transfer station safe at night.
Saturday: We plan arriving late into the city maybe 4ish. We have nothing planned except to wander for a few hours, we are open to suggestions. We plan to leave around 8:30-9ish. Thanks and we look forward to enjoying your great city. Rhonda
