Hi everyone. My partner and I (both 30) will be visiting New York next January for five days. We'll arrive at about 6am on an overnight flight from SFO. I've just finished reading the Frommer's New York City day by day guide cover to cover, and am excited about our visit! I've also been reading the TA forums so here goes...
This is what I'm thinking. Is it too much? We're happy to walk where we can. Your honest thoughts are appreciated! We won't be offended if you tell us it's unachievable and value your suggestions.
Thank you in advance.
