- 6 days in NYC – what to do?
All of the above, but spend time down town, TriBeCa, west village etc.
This is the low rise, red brick area, has an awesome feel.
Walk the highline (free) from north to south, this is free and just amazing.
At the end is an undercover area with cafés and bars.
The Boris bikes are good as you can pretty much do the circumference without crossing roads so it’s a nice ride. You can ride or walk the Brooklyn bridge (for free)which is on a deck way above the traffic.
Staten Island ferry is worth it as it is free.
Pizzas, from my sister who lived in the village:
Joe’s for a slice, John’s to sit down for a pie- both in Greenwich village. I prefer Joe’s. For a fun restaurant w good Italian pizza: Ovest in Chelsea.
I preferred Johns btw.
We went to a club at the top of the Standard Hotel, which was amazing, views of just about everything from the roof top bar. Obviously no chance of getting the kids in at night and you will need passports, not sure what goes on during the day:Posted 4 years ago
Is the roller coaster not out of action after the storms last yearPosted 4 years ago
Will probably be bitterly cold in feb, so get wrapped up.
Fantastic place new york, get a 7 day unlimited underground ticket and do some travelling to the outer boroughs
Some nice restaurants and pubs on smith street in brooklyn
The underground museum is worth a visit, loads of old cars housed in a disued station
I wouldent say its eye wateringly expensive
Have a great timeBillMCMember
Go to Bleecker St, Greenwich Village and eat at Fish and drink a beer in the Blind Tiger over the road. You will not be disappointed. Walk over the Williamsburg Bridge, it wobbles, and Williamsburg has the Brooklyn Brewery and a great second hand clothes shop directly opposite.Posted 4 years ago
I much prefer the villages than uptown big shops etc. Take the Staten Island Ferry, run round the station and come back…..for free! Buy jeans and Carharrt stuff for peanuts at Dave’s, Avenue of the Americas (check the website). I like NY.allfankledupSubscriber
I went to the Met museum last year (actually 2012) – brilliant – some amazing stuff
Rockefeller centre for the views
Chelsea pier / high line were great last summer – walked the highlife in July at 11pm – beautiful experience
Madison Square Garden to watch an ice hockey game – we got tickets for the Rangers vs the Phoenix Coyotes for $50 each, 6 rows off the ice – awesome – great atmosphere
Century 21 for the shopping
Food is generally meh – bills burgers down near ground zero was my best experience to date.Posted 4 years agoMcHamishMember
Me and my wife spent a week there in 2012.
My main piece of advice is walk
If your wife or your daughters enjoy musicals, then eat at Ellen’s Stardust Diner, the waiters/waitresses are all wannabe broadway musical stars and they sing for tips.
Liberty Island is boring…better seen from a distance and the Staten Island ferry is free, and goes right past it. But you can usually go there with a package to visit Ellis Island which I recommend. I’m a bit of a nerd when it comes to historical attractions, and there’s a lot to learn about immigration into New York and America.Posted 4 years ago
