You know me, I love NYC and this will be our 11th visit.
Here's our loose-ish itinerary - would be grateful for suggestions, feedback or potential trickies you can spot to make it a less loose itinerary! Thanks :)
Thursday May 29
Arrive JFK 1.30pm. Estimate by the time we get past the good old TSA, pick up luggage and trek on the Subway we'll be at our first hotel - Element - by approx 5pm. Quick drop off of luggage, freshen up and change and out of the door to hopefully catch Manhattanhenge at Tudor Bridge.
- Anywhere to grab some food quickly on our way to Tudor Bridge from the hotel - preferably food truck?
Friday May 30
Birthday breakfast at Clinton Street. Trip to Tiffany to choose my gift :) Rest of the day exploring Queens including Flushing Meadows Park, Sculpture Park and some places in between. Still working on this itinerary and might switch for Mon/Tues yet (see below).
Birthday dinner some place casual-ish in Manhattan - preferably somewhere close to a few good pubs (but not pretentious trendy places where you just go to be seen....).
Saturday May 31
Afternoon Yankees game. No firm plans afterwards as not sure about timings etc.
Sunday June 1
Change of hotel (got two bargain Priceline Deals by splitting) so down to Marriott Downtown.
- Any other suggestions for Brooklyn?
Monday June 2
Roosevelt Aerial tram
Possibly Coney Island
I guess we could have done Queens this day but I'd like to see the Panorama at the museum and I believe they are closed Mon & Tues. But I might forego this if it works better overall.
Tuesday June 3
Going to pick a couple of NYC walks to go on and explore - we have a pack of cards, each one has a different walk around the city, pointing out things to do and see. I quite fancy UWS.
