Is it feasible to do a SOL crown climb at 10AM (boarding time for the ferry), then see Ellis Island, then get back to Manhattan in time to be at the 911 memorial for a 3PM walking tour? If not, I can try to squeeze in the 911 memorial on a different day. We really want to do both, and it's our last day in NYC, so if we miss the walking tour we wouldn't have a chance to go back. (Of course, I wouldn't want to miss a prebooked tour with limited spaces anyway.)
I can't figure out if it's doable but tight or totally a ridiculous idea. I was expecting there to be a 4PM tour, which I think would have been fine, but those are no longer on the schedule. This would be on Sat April 5.
How long would it take to get from Penn Station to the Hilton Garden Inn Central Park South to check in and drop luggage and then to the 911 memorial? We'll probably get to Penn Station somewhere around noon (planning to book train tix today, so trying to figure this out first).
This is the biggest issue I have with our itinerary at the moment. I hate to rush things, but we only have 4 full days in NYC, so I guess we'll either have to rush or take things out.
I've searched on the forum and it seems like if we're efficient but not crazy rushed this would be doable, but I want to make sure before I decide.
Thanks for any advice.
Oops. Just noticed the "tour" disappeared from the title of the post. This computer does some random things sometimes...Edited: 30 January 2014, 19:01
