What to do on a sunday morning?

Sunday 8th October is our first morning in New York and we are looking for something to do.

We have been to New York before have always had something planned for the sunday morning but this year we don't have anything planned so we are looking for something to do just for a few hours since we are planning on seeing a show that afternoon.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

This is a good Sunday morning choice:


We just did this, then still had time to walk down to see the World Trade Center site and St. Paul's chapel before heading uptown for a matinee.

How about church?

St. Thomas Episcopal (i.e., Anglican) on Fifth Avenue at 53rd Street is not merely a very beautiful building; has one of the great choirs (of men and boys -- they even have their own residential choir school) of the world. At 11 AM on October 8th they are doing Hassler's "Missa Octo Vocum", and two great Russian choral anthems by Rachmaninoff.

And it's free....

A walk in Central Park may be nice, grab a cup of coffee and some breakfast and watch the world go by.

The weekend you are here is Open House NY weekend, check their website in the coming weeks for "free" tours of many of NY's architectural gems. There may be some available on Sunday AM, early PM prior to your show:

This is a great NYC event. I both volunteer and participate and it is truly wonderful, and all free. Hope something can fit into your plans.

Central Park! It's more than just a park. You'll easily get a full morning in there. Once you get in there you'll totally 'get' NY and why people live there. The countryside is in the middle of the city and it's so peaceful and quiet.I was in there on an April morning and watched the sunrise and the park come to life. It's a fascinating place and plenty see there.

What amazed me the most about Central Park was to return home and discover it's all man made. I would never have guessed. Even more Cudos to NY for that.

Have fun!
