UH OH I just realized

by highlandlassie

I just realized that i will be arriving in new york on black friday...nov 26. will this mean that everything will be busier that weekend or just the retail stores? i do not plan on doing much shopping but am curious if you think tourist places will be way busier being the weekend after thanksgiving. by tourist places i mean empire state building....moma...etc. what do you all think? also , has anyone seen the shoe feurza bruta? is it worth seeing?

Re: UH OH I just realized

In all likelihood MoMA, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Empire State Building and other tourist attractions will be busy the weekend after Thanksgiving.

That will be a major weekend, with out-of-towners and locals looking for amusement.

I loved fuerza bruta, as well a de la guarda--a prior show by the same company. However, its not a "traditional" broadway type show, so if that is what you are looking for, its not for you---you stand up for this the whole time, with cool dj music playing in the background, with water splashing about. the story(ies) are also abstract.

The city will be flooded with non residents. People who were in town for the Parade on Thursday and stay the weekend. Also, many businesses and virtually all schools are closed so there will be a city full of residents and non residents with plenty of leisure time and spending money. Yes, the city and the sites will likely be busy.

NYC is busy all the time and the x-mas rush begins after the Macy's Thanksgiving
parade.... but since you are not shopping, enjoy the people. Cheers Tommy x

we were there last year for black friday and it was busy (but i have no concept what it would have been like any other time!)

We headed to the brooklyn bridge - had a walk over there, wander round china town and avoided the shops and tourist sights (such as museums etc) and were fine!

Re: UH OH I just realized

As everyone stated..it will be a busy wkend...but a great time to be in nYc. If you are doing little shopping, you have nada to worry about. Do take a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge and hang out in the Dumbo/Bk Heights/Boerum Hill area! Great bars and restaurants.
I saw de la guarda back in the days and it was very cool. As stated, Fuerza Bruta is NOT a traditional Bway show where you sit and watch. It can be very interactive adn you stand throughout. Very cool experience IMO. The acrobats in De La Guarda actually picked people up and took them for "rides" during the show...so be prepared!

If you managed to get tickets then you should be OK. It is a fairly busy travel day but not as bad as some. I believe it is regarded as Amtrak's busiest day all year, but if you aren't taking the train anywhere then you don't have much to worry about.

Travel Tips for New York City

The Best Public Bathroom in Midtown

by persimmondeb

The Disney Store on Fifth Avenue has a clean, excellent, easily accessible restroom on their basement level. It's easy to get to, no-one has to unlock it for you, and their lower level is quiet and peaceful, since it seems to be occupied only by the restrooms and their guest services. The only drawback may be trying to get young children to leave the store afterwards.

Exquisite Details

by mrclay2000

When in New York, it's difficult to miss much of the city due to the skyscrapers. Too often, new visitors look up instead of straight ahead, for like all cities that claim to be cultural centers of their countries, New York City abounds in placards, memorials, statues of famous persons, and small artistic marvels to counterbalance its towering monoliths and its commercial vitality. New York City must have seen a billion visitors in its history, and countless thousands of them have left behind their beautiful artwork.

Despite the fact that there's...

by CubsIn4

Despite the fact that there's a lot here other than NYC, I would still rate it as the best part of the state. I'm hoping to get my NYC page up soon, so I'll leave specific ideas of things to do there for that site. I have two items for this category. One is taking the Staten Island Ferry across to Manhattan, which gave me great views of the Statue of Liberty and of Lower Manhattan. My other choice is visiting the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, a fascinating museum for all baseball fans.

Climb whatever there is to...

by eden_teuling

Climb whatever there is to climb! Travel by bus and walk, walk, walk. Have breakfast at a Deli:the choisiest things on which you can build your day! Make a boattrip all around Manhattan, walk into the famous old hotels en banks: there are more possibilities than you think. Dream away in Central Park and buy fruit etc. at the Amish shops. Share a hotelroom with friends, the more in one room the merrier and the cheaper. Prof. Dr. Thomas van Leeuwen was our learned guide and thanks to him we could enter places normally closed to the public. Spring was in the air when we walked through Central Park and the Easterparade.....!Visit the Botanical gardens: excellent!enjoy streetlife to the full 24 hours per day: sleep and rest you can find when you are in the plane back home. Don't waste a split second. Modern Art fan? Visit the galeries and don't forget Guggenheim c.s.!!FEEL the metal of the iron houses and touch the old BROWNSTONES.
Dance with the sun and dance with the moon and don't forget to give something to a homeless rough sleeper now and again: SHARE a bit .....good idea ??

By the way: Broadway was called 'Heeren Straet/Heeren Wegh' during the time NY was New Amsterdam and thus Dutch and it has always kept the name Broadway, even after the 'GRID' was introduced, our professor told us, while we were walking there.

by irisbe

Just across the river and it almost looks a different world ... BROOKLYN!
Take that bus and make a tour around!
Try some of those bagel (LOL sargentjeff made me write "bagel" a 100 times1) and make a stop at the little bakery that was the scenery of Moonstruck, the movie with Cher (who is I am told coming from Brooklyn) I marveled at the view you had on Manhattan!
