Hi, I need advice on planning a weekend trip to NYC. My husband and I have never been to NYC and we are going to Ireland, flying out of JFK at 10 pm on a Sunday night. We figured we would go to NYC on Saturday morning and go sight seeing and spend a night on Saturday and do more sight seeing on Sunday. We would like to see times square, central park, battery park, the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building and “Ground Zero.” I have been looking at Hop on Hop Off bus tours and thinking that would be the best way to see the city. Does any one have any suggestions on where to stay or how to break the tour up? I was thinking of starting at one end of the city and staying some where near JFK, maybe somewhere that has shuttle to the airport? Since I have never been to NYC I have no idea how big the city really is or how to plan the trip. Any suggestions are appreciated, thank you in advance.
