We are travelling to New York on Oct 29th for 4 Days staying in Times Square, we have never been before, we don't want to feel like we are being rushed off our feet all day running round trying to cram everything in, we know we won't get to see everything New York has to offer in this time so was wondering if anyone has advice to give on a small unrushed itinerary.
We would like to go to the Rockefeller Center and Central Park and my daughters were wondering if ice skating is on in Central Park at this time of the year, as it's Halloween we would like to see the parade, any advice on this would be great i.e. best places to watch etc.
We would like to visit 9/11 memorial and of course they want to go shopping, is Forever 21 any good or can anyone recommend places etc.
To see the Statue of Liberty etc are we best using the Staten Island Ferry or paying silly money for a Circle line Cruise etc
Also it seems like there are so many eateries I don't know where to start again any advice would be great.
There are 5 of us and getting around is going to be cheapest on the Subway I assume ?, I don't know whether a Metro Card is more worth it than paying for each ride as we are only there 5 days can anyone advise.
If someone has any ideas for an itinerary for us I would be pleased to hear from you, we dont really do museums just the odd bit of sightseeing, eating and shopping.
Sorry if I seem a little vague and am maybe asking to much but the the more I read all the reviews and places to go my head starts spinning and just don't seem to get any closer to deciding what to do and for the best value or experience !!!
Any Help as always is very much appreciated !!
