Have a question as I am putting together my itinerary (which I will ask for help with soon!) about travel times and ease of travel around the city. We are in our 40's w/2 boys 10 & 12 and have 4 days in NYC.
How difficult or time consuming and realistic is it to go from one area to another during the day and/or back to our hotel? I will be more specific as I know that is very vague!
We are staying at the Marriott Marquis times sq. - if we were down in the Village area one day around 3:30-4 (after high line/chelsea mkt/village is it realistic to go back to the hotel for an hour or so to shower & change clothes then head back down to dinner in Little Italy (6ish) and Blue man group at Astor place at 8? Or should we plan on just staying down there? Or not trying to fit it all in on one day?
Or if we are in Central park/AMNH in the afternoon & want to go back to hotel then back to Tavern on the Green (maybe just for drinks - we were engaged there so it's sentimental) is that easy enough and how long?
I don't want to do a lot of back tracking, but on the other hand would like to maybe chill for a bit and shower/change as we will all need it I'm sure!
Also, is Blue Man worth it? It is really putting a wrench in my itinerary as I am having a hard time planning around it. We only want to go if we can get discount tix at TKTS, so can't really plan for it but am trying to do if/then scenarios. If we do BMG on this day/then...
We don't have to see it, but did want to take the boys to some sort of performance that they might like w/o spending a fortune.
