Ok, I'm in serious planning mode. I have a couple of maps and am trying to plan whole days in terms of location. We will be staying in the Hotel Metro on 35th. I dont do the subway - my preferred mode of transport is walking (we can walk great distances) but obviously to get the best from our time buses and taxis will be used when needed. Times Square can be fitted in at any time so wont be in my itinary. I have booked one walking tour (may book another). Apart from the walking tour day I'm not planning what actual day we'll do anything just bunching stuff together in terms of whole days - if that makes sense? Also, we're not rushers-instead we like to savor the experience and enjoy the ambience so I'm not interested in cramming loads of stuff into my day but want my day to be filled. Not bothered about shopping - hate it - but will fit something in for the expected look sees if I have time. We'll be there for 7 full days excluding arrival and departure day. Thanks for looking.
ESB walk past
Grand Central Station
Chrysler building walk past
St Patricks Cathedral

Brooklyn (DUMBO and where?) can Brooklyn be added onto above day or better as a day on its own?
