Take a look at the FAQ's on the right side of this page.."What are must see and do."

Start there.

You won;t be able to see it all in 4 days.

When I think of the main sights in NY that first time visitors would want to see, I think of:

Central Park

Top of the Rock/Empire State

Times Square

Statue of Liberty

Grand Central Terminal

Brooklyn Bridge

Try and spend some time in Greenwich Village, walk the Highline, visit the Lower East Side and Soho.

What are your interests?

What type of food do you like?

Are you happy using the subway to get around?

Do you want to visit any museums?

A hop on/hop off bus may be of use to you.

Easiest: get in the yellow cab line. $52.50 plus tip & tolls (total ~$65-$70).

Is best cheapest, most luxurious, something else?

My partner has asthma, so I guest the easiest form of transport for him to get around.

Yellow cab from the official taxi stand. Just follow the signs.

Our interests are art mainly - free flowing art. Where would be the best art area in NYC? We would love to watch artists paint out in the open space.

We love all types of food.

We have no problem with using the subways.

We would love to visit one museum and would use the hop on/hop off bus as we used same in Paris and found it very good.
