So my advice is, if you are planning a trip to New York City
1- Plan you days before you go, so you get as much packed into your days as possible.
2- To avoid crazy cab drivers and costs, choose all sites and restaurants you want to visit in a day around the same area. I suggest printing out your maps and plan the route from A to B. Google maps is brill for this!
3- If you are planning a lot of site seeing, I would highly recommend you purchase the New York Pass. You will save money. They often have sales on their website, so keep a close eye.
4- We always stay Mid town around Park Avenue, Madison and Lexington. It a great place to stay as its so close to most main attractions – We’ve stayed in Fitzpatricks hotel Grand Central €€€ and The Woldorf Astoria Hotel Park Avenue €€€€
5- Top 3 sites I would highly recommend is:
(a) The Hudson River Cruise – The Liberty Cruise is the best in my opinion, 1.5 hours long and you see they most important sites.
(b) The One World Observatory- Not included on the New York Pass – It cost $38 each extra. But worth every penny.
(c) Woodbury Common – Super shopping spot.
Hope this helps anyone heading out the the Big Apple and I wish you all a happy safe journey, you will love every second of it!!
