Hello! I am looking for some help with my first trip to NYC. We are a family of 4 (kids are boy 13 & girl 8). We are coming to celebrate my son's 13th birthday.
We will arrive to Penn Station on Thursday Sept 4th at 3:30 pm. We are staying at Home2Suites by Hilton in Long Island City. We will be going to the Yankees 7 pm game vs Boston that night.
On Friday, we have tickets to see Aladdin on Broadway at 8pm. On Sunday (my son's bday), we have Yankees tickets at 1 pm. We depart on Monday morning at 5:30 am.
I have no clue as to how to plan the other things we want to see/do. I'm not sure what all we can fit in as well. Listed are some of the things we really want to do: Carlo's Bakery, Statue of Liberty, 9/11, Top of the Rock/NBC and Times Square.
Please help me figure out an itinerary for our trip. Please also include any other helpful info or must see sights we could fit in. Anything special to do on a teenagers actual birthday? Best advice for games at Yankee Stadium?
Thanks for your time and input!!
