We arrive at JFK on Thursday landing at 130pm. We're going to take the Airtrain and Lirr to Penn Station and then walk to our hotel - Nyma on W 32 Street. Check in and take a wander to get our bearings. Thinking of doing the Gray Line Night Tour in the evening to see the city. return to Times Square and grab some dinner and wander around the area.
Friday - breakfast at hotel, walk to B&H Photo Video so hubby can buy a camera. Subway to WTC memorial followed by a walk through Wall Street. walk to South Ferry (?) to get the Staten Island Ferry. Following ferry, subway to Rockerfellar Centre (via Grand Central), grab a bite to eat, then TOTR. Might wander back to Times Square to see the shops we may have missed the previous night.
Saturday - bus 111 from Port Authority Bus Terminal to Jersey Gardens. Spend the day shopping. No plans for what to do Sat evening. Can anyone recommend a cinema where we could see a good movie Sat night (something new which isn't showing in Ireland yet!!)
Sunday - our wedding anniversary!! Breakfast and hit American Museum of National History, had thought about doing BB Kings Harlem Gospel Choir brunch Sun morning before AMNH? wander through Central Park and grab some lunch. Wander over to Guggenheim. Recommendations for a relaxed meal Sun night? Pub grub/ Italian/Indian...? Nothing fancy.
Monday - free to do anything we missed/last minute shopping etc. leave for airport at 5pm (Lirr and Airtrain to JFK) for 9pm flight back to Dublin.
I realise we're missing a lot but my husband has a hip injury that means he can't walk as much as he had hoped and I don't want to tire him out so we've done a must see list and will see everything else the next time. Comments or suggestions much appreciated.
