Myself and my girlfriend will be visiting New York from August 29th leaving September 3rd. Will be out 1st time in the city and can't explain how excited we are. We plan on doing all the touristy things such as Empire State (although may just do the cruise past on this, SoL, 9/11 memorial and 9/11 museum etc. We are working on a rough itinerary at the moment and will post on the site for any feedback or suggestions when its complete. Just wondering is it recommended to book in advance for any of the sights or is turning up on the day ok for most?
Also we thought it would be nice to take in some sporting activities one of the nights but I cant seem to find any fixtures on teams sites at the minute? Another idea we had for a night was a cinema (just seems more thrilling going to see a film in New York than compared to back home) is there a recommended cinema for the major films near where we will be staying (Affinia Manhattan)
Thanks in advance for any help
