If you could only say one thing......

If you could only say one thing/give one bit of advice to first time visitors what would it be?

I am visiting NYC in a few weeks and coming from London. I ask this because I live in London and always answer questions for visitors with the same answer. Now the boot is on the other foot and I am becoming the visitor.

So what is your one thing?

Make sure you factor time into your itinerary to get from A to B. The subway is fast but it's not instant. I think a lot of people forget that.

Slappyknight - sounds like you enjoy traveling the same way I do. Just 'being' and soaking up the atmoshere has been some of the best spent time I did while in NYC.

The one thing I'd say is take your time and just let the city lead the way. Every corner seems to hold a new adventure. I love the place.

Don't try to follow a moment by moment itinerary. NYC is all about the magical, unexpected moments that can be missed if you're on a tightly timed itinerary.
