First Time In New York, what are your must-do's
It will actually be my first time in New York later this year. I have things I'd like to do, but what are your must-do's and preference of hop on/off or tours?? Any Broadway shows we should see, secret shopping places (especially for shoes!)
Must dos are The Highline, a fabulous park on a disused railway track above street level that you can walk along, the USS Intrepid/Space Shuttle on the waterfront, Urban Safari Private Walking tour with Jim Dykes, take the Staten Island ferry to get onto the harbour and the trip is FREE. Galaxy Diner on 48th & 9th Ave is a great for breakfast. Try the subway it is fun. Book your Broadway shows before you go as at the moment a lot of the popular ones are booked out for weeks and you may miss out. If there for a long time I would recommend the New York CityPASS it does save you heaps. Walk or bike the Brooklyn Bridge. Another suggestion is head down to Asbury Park with New Jersey Transit train, only 1.30 hours and a nice day at the beach only US$15 each way. Depart from Penn Station.
