Me and my girlfriend (21 y/o) are travelling to NYC for 8 days at the beginning of June. We would be very grateful if someone could look over our itinerary and see what you think and if it is possible. This is a very rough itinerary and we haven't gone into detail with it yet.
Day 1: Arrive at Edison Hotel at 1:30pm, check in by 3pm, unpack and explore the area. Dinner at Dallas BBQ then an early night.
Day 2: Midtown shopping and some sightseeing e.g. grand central, TOTR, times square etc. Try and grab a broadway show for the evening.
Day 3: Helicopter ride downtown at 10:30am, afterwards walk onto wall street then to visit the World Trade Center memorial site. Quick lunch and then walk across the Brooklyn bridge and back, maybe pass through Chinatown and Little Italy on the way home.
Day 4: Subway to Coney island and Brighton beach for the day, lunch at Nathans hotdogs then home in time for a 7:30 dinner cruise
Day 5: Start our day at Chelsea market and the Chelsea area, then down to Greenwich village for an explore, then afterwards walk down to SoHo for shopping. Possibly a comedy club and a cocktail bar planned for the night (Any reccomendations?)
Day 6: Central park zoo and 2hr bike rental around the park. After we have explored the park we plan on walking to the National Museum of Natural History and spending some time there and exploring the upper west side area.
We then have 2 spare days that we are undecided on how to fill. Would be very appreciated if someone could give us some suggestions on how to fill them and also if we should spread our itinerary out a bit more? We are not generally interested in visiting many museums but would love some recommendations on good shows to see and some lively bars and restauraunts, maybe even a good walking tour.
Thank you very much for your help
