Favorite Spots and Things To Do:
Empire State Building or Top of the Rock – very fun at night, go only if it’s very clear and not cloudy outside
Ground Zero – is now mostly a construction site but if you haven’t seen it you probably want to go Rockefeller Center – best to see at Christmas but fun all the time, good shops inside the plaza area (downstairs)
Central Park – wonderful to go through near Central Park South (the horse-drawn carriages line up along there near The Plaza at 59th and 5th Avenue). Fun to walk through at 72nd Street, you’ll see many famous landmarks that you’ve seen in movies!
Grand Central Station – this is truly a WONDER, the architecture of this landmark inside the main passageway is awesome!
Lincoln Center – if you go the NYC Ballet or the Vivian Beaumont Theatre (for Broadway shows) here at Lincoln Center there are plenty of fun restaurants across from Lincoln Center, including Josephina’s, and
some places where you can sit outside if it’s nice, all are good along that area!
The Today Show – fun to go to in the morning if you don’t mind fighting the crowd. Go into the Dean and Deluca right there (at Rockefeller Center) and warm up or get a good cup of coffee and a snack!
Columbus Circle – The Time Warner Center here (where CNN is located) is a new mall with great shops and a HUGE Whole Foods downstairs, fun to see this area of town, very close to Lincoln Center
Broadway Shows – you can stand in line and buy discount tickets (typically 50% off) for the same day showings, at the TKTS booth in Times Square or downtown near Ground Zero, ask at your hotel for more details, or buy tickets online at www.playbill.com.
Have fun and enjoy the greatest city in the world!!!
