Hi there! Heading to NYC this summer with my best friend since childhood - my first NY trip, her second - I'm overwhelmed but excited abt our 3 nights/4 days coming up! I like having a (flexible) itinerary, she's more open; we both love theatre, want to see "the big sights" & love good food.
Q's - 1)what is your rec transportation from JFK to our Times Sq area hotel? Flight lands on a Fri 9.30 am.(We're aiming for carry- ons for luggage & would like to get right to sightseeing asap).
2) Is TOTR better experienced first thing in am or late at night? I'm torn. We're also debating one of the sunset cruises for one evening.
3) I know The Met could be an entire trip in itself, but can a half- day do it justice? How much further out are The Cloisters?
4) Are the Hop on/off tours generally of good value?
5) We're expecting heat & humidity, but any tips on what to do / what to avoid specifically in summer?
Thx so much!
