we're heading out for our 8-day visit to NYC, staying in Chinatown. this is our 2nd visit, our 4 year-old's 1st. we're planning to buy the CityPass which covers a lot of what we want to do. here's the rundown of our must-do's:
-Museum of Natural History
-Grand Central Station
-Brooklyin Heights and Bridge Walk back
-Greenwich Village and SoHo
-Midtown (Rockefeller, Top o' the Rock)
-Ellis Island, Wall St., and 9/11 Memorial (1 day set)
i'm debating on the Met as we've been there before along w/ Empire State Building (and also b/c it's included in our CityPass :)).
i would love to check out 5 Points in Queens but that's a possible optional side trip.
we'll be in early Thursday dropping off luggage in our hotel in Chinatown and then will 1st check out that area along w/ Little Italy since it's next door. i have a roundabout idea but was wondering what the best approach should be to organize our days. for example, which of the places i listed above should we check out in the same day? i'm trying to go by area for each day if possible so we're not running around from one end to the other. we don't want to overdo it of course and i'm trying to make our days flexible and open to change in case the elements kick in or something needs to be moved around (as i know it will due to our little kiddo). any input would be appreciated again :)
