Husband and I are coming to NYC for 6 nights / 5 full days. Both first time visitors.
My question is - is it crazy to be planning no museums whatsoever, nor a Broadway show?
I'm in the process of putting together an itinerary and am struggling as it is to fit things in. We're not museum people (I know that probably sounds terribly uncultured! We're not, but they're just not our thing.) We like to people watch, will want to see a few different neighbourhoods, and just walk around, eat, drink. We won't be sticking to midtown at all.
But I'm having a bit of a wobble now. Whenever I see lists of "must dos", they include museums and Broadway (musicals not our thing either.) Are we going to be missing a real part of the NYC "experience" by not doing them?
I know people will probably say it's all down to personal preference, but looking for people's personal opinion.
