Here are some ideas for New York City breaks. Because if you go with your family, you’ll have to do more than just see the Giants. In fact, you’ll want to do more than just see the Giants no matter what.
Their 5 reasons to visit NYC are:
Great Bars, Restaurants and Nightlife
World Class Museums and Galleries
All of these are great reasons to visit New York. Let me offer a little tip on each of these 5 things. For shopping, one department store is great for New Yorkers and for tourists: Century 21, right near the old World Trade Center. I’ve bought everything from watches to shoes to sports jackets at this place, always steeply discounted. When I go to New York around Christmas time, that’s where I go to buy presents.
For bars, I say find the ones that do great music. I have fond memories of the 55 Bar & Grill where I used to see Sweet Georgia Brown. Great blues there most of the time. And for a more expensive and upscale experience, the Iridium. I saw Les Paul there – just classic.
Broadway – Actually my least favorite reason as I’ve never felt like shelling out the big bucks for a Broadway show. Try to plan well in advance and figure how to get discount tickets.
Museums – No doubt about it. So many great ones in NYC and you can’t see them all. Heck, you can’t even see all of the MET, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, but you sure can see a lot of art there.
Neighborhoods – Heck yeah. So many famous ones. The most overlooked would be Harlem. There’s lots to do there and I laugh at how it seems the whole world is scared of Harlem.
And don’t forget to leave Manhattan once in a while. The Bronx Zoo would be a wonderful excuse.
