I am going to be in D.C and traveling to NY by Amtrack for one day. I will have a total of 12 hours in the city.
I did this trip last year, and if I am honest, attempted to condense wayyyy too much into such a short trip and missed out on the main thing I wanted to do-- see the Statue of Liberty up close! I couldn't find the free water taxi and couldn't afford the ferry trips...
The main plan this time round is to get the hop-on, hop- off bus tour trip, purchasing a ticket for the five loops. I's love to spend a bit longer in Chinatown and Little Italy and of course, see Lady Lib up close and perhaps go to the 9/11 Memorial Museum (I'm aware I can purchase tickets for this in March.)
I was wondering if someone could tell me-- if I arrive in Penn Station and want to get to the free water taxi, how do I go about this? Should the bus tour drop me off close by or do i get the subway to South Ferry.
Thanks in advance!
