Well, we decided to make it even and both go this summer! In June I'll be heading to the Big Apple for the first time* and we only have 4 days to see everything (and we're spending our last day visiting Alex).
There are a few key things we plan to hit up like Ellis Island & Lady Liberty, Times Square, Central Park, Ground Zero. Last time E didn't get a chance to see a show on Broadway, and that is at the top of my short list. We're also excited to visit Redeemer Church on Sunday.
But I know a few of you out there know some things about the city that never sleeps, so I need your advice!
- What are your top 3 places to eat?
- Top 3 tourist sites worth seeing?
- Top 3 gems off the beaten path?
Anything else we should know as we plan our trip? I know there are a ton of other things, but I'd love to hear from some residents and seasoned travelers about what's worth it and what's not.
Also, FOOD! I love to eat for the enjoyment of it and E likes to eat for energy (to do more sight-seeing). So we're looking for restaurants in between: not too fancy or time-consuming, but really yummy.
