Hi! My 14 year old and I will be in NYC later this month (3/14 thru 3/16) and are planning a last-minute getaway. We've never been to New York before and could REALLY use some assistance or suggestions in planning an itinerary. I have to admit up front that the idea of traveling to New York terrifies me just a little... not the city itself but the fact that I don't have a great sense of direction and my husband won't be with us to navigate!
We have a few "must do's" we'd like to work in:
1-2 Musicals (The Lion King and Catch Me if you Can are the first choices!)
Statue of Liberty
Tea at the Plaza!
A museum or 2 (possibly the MOMA)
We'd like to get to Canal Street, Central Park etc.
So, would any kind Trip Advisorer (?) be willing to provide some suggestions as to where this newbie tourist should start? We are doing this sort of last-minute and need to get a hotel still also... Thank you!
