That looks totally do-able to me.

For what to add, exploring interesting neighborhoods on foot and just soaking in the vibe. Greenwich Village is great for that.

For Wednesday, starting your day at 11am is cutting into the possibilities. Can you do the Beast earlier?

Yeah can do beast on the hour from 10am but as we staying 29th street ace hotel and walking to pier 83 it's advised to be there 45 mins before? So prob will make the 11am ride out.

Do you have to walk for some reason? Keep in mind, it may well be incredibly hot and humid and uncomfortable - not a great way to start the day.

There's no reason why I say we will walk only that if we went on subway that would involve walking anyway to nearest stations. Just thought would be great way to see some of New York. Didn't really think about the weather so will bear that in mind. Maybe get a cab?

Your hotel is just shy of 2 miles from Pier 83. That's a long walk to get to an attraction that you have to be there for a certain time for. I agree with taking the subway over there. Looks like the closest subway to your hotel is not quite 2 blocks away.

Don't forget to buy your 9/11 Museum tickets in advance, if you haven't already.

I think you will get everything in. Have a great trip!! You will love it! We'll be there right before you.

"The beast speed boat tour to Statue of Liberty."

Not quite sure what you mean ... This might go BY the SOL, but the only way to go TO it (and walk around liberty island) is via statue cruises.

Yeah the beast just goes by SOL and stops for pics. I would love to stop off there but don't think the kids will want to so speed boat is next best thing to get close. Thanks for all the info.
