  1. We will be staying at 6th and 37th in mid-October. We're looking for a reasonably priced Italian restaurant (not just pizza) within walking distance, if possible. We prefer a mom and pop type place over a fancy place. Thank you for any recommendations.
  2. Thank you for all the responses. It's exactly what I needed to hear to make me slash my list. I already had a feeling it was too much, but now it's confirmed! I will concentrate on just a few of the sights. Thanks again!
  3. Thank you for the responses. We will be staying at Embassy Suites at 60 W 37th St. Our ship leaves Brooklyn at 7pm on Tuesday, Oct. 16.
  4. Is this plan doable or am I crazy? I'm mainly asking about Monday, Oct. 15. There will be 4 of us (2 in the group are seniors who can get around fairly well but will need rest stops now and then). The plan is to use the subway system rather than the HOHO bus, but please correct me if that's a bad idea. I'm afraid we will just sit in traffic if we do the HOHO bus. We arrive at JFK at 2:30pm on Sunday, Oct. 14....the plan is to get a taxi to our hotel in midtown Manhattan. Our only plan for that evening is to go to Times Square and to walk through Macy's. Monday, October 15- After the morning rush hour about 9:30ish, our plan is to take the subway to see the 9/11 Memorial (not the museum) and from there take subway to Federal Hall, NY Stock Exchange, Wall Street, Charging Bull for photos and probably a quick bite to eat.I know most people could walk between the sights but we are trying to save the senior citizens' energy!:) After that we will take the subway to the the Staten Island ferry terminal and take the ferry to take pics of Statue of Liberty and back on the ferry again. I'm assuming it will be about 2:30pm or 3:00pm by this time.....or is that crazy to think we did the above mentioned activities in 5 or so hours? Again, if I'm wrong to think that, please correct me. Moving along....take the subway back to Rockefeller Plaza and go to Top of the Rock and St. Patrick's Cathedral. Thoughts? Tuesday, October 16- about 9:30am take subway to Central Park and take carriage ride. After carriage ride, take subway to Grand Central Terminal and from there walk to NY Public library/Bryant Park. Be back at hotel around 2pm to get taxi to Brooklyn cruise terminal. I would so appreciate any feedback on these plans and if it's too much or doable.
