Few Hours By Down Town New York Heliport

by kirsty_lamb

In November we are heading to New York. My Husband, as a birthday present is heading up in a Helicopter for a half hour tour from Down Town Heliport near Battery Park. I will not be joining him (fear of flying in helicopters) so have a little while to potter about myself.

I will go with him to the Heliport (his sense of direction is terrible!) In the morning we will have been on a three hour walking tour as well.

Anyone any suggestions on fun or interesting things to do in November in this area for a couple of hours? - I do plan to get a subway pass so it just needs to be not to far away so I can go get him after!

If you're interested in history, Fraunces Tavern's restaurant is still closed, but the museum remains open.

The Federal Reserve tour is fascinating. It's also popular, so you would need to book the tour far in advance. Just seeing the gold vault is worth it!

Or, you can walk up a couple of blocks to Stone Street, where there are a number of good pubs.

I also like the Paris Cafe's bar. It's a few blocks further up on South Street, past the Seaport.

If the weather isn't wonderful (and even if it is), the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian in only a few blocks away in the gorgeous Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House. The building alone is with a look and very historic. We enjoyed both of these very much and the museum is FREE so you have nothing to lose! The complex is officially known as the George Gustav Heye Center.

Here's my VT tip on the museum:

And the museum website:

And my VT tip on the Custom House:

And the website for the custom house:

The address is One Bowling Green - a google or the attached website should show you exact location.

ARG - my brain works faster than my fingers! Sorry for the typos:

."..the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian IS only a few blocks away in the gorgeous Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House. The building alone is WORTH a look and very historic.

And do not forget a quick stroll through Battary Park, great views of the harbor, watching the Staten Island Ferry, seeing the Statue of Liberty etc..or just sit on a bench there and take your cafe and watch the pigeons and people stroll by.

Travel Tips for New York City

Do NYE at least once in your life!!!!

by MELEBR

My favorite thing about NYC was all the people. I met so many friendly people from all over the place. Times Sqaure and Cipriani's tops my list! Times Square was absoulutly nuts!!! There were sooooooooo many people but everyone was having a good time even though we were all freezing cold and wet from the snow/flurries. This is something everyone should do at least once in their life. There were people of all ages, not many "little" kids, there were even people in wheel chairs. The people in wheel chairs get the best viewing spot, they have an area all of their own right in the front.

USA Today Newspaper

by Henkster

USA Today is the newspaper I would mostly read in the US. It is not a tabloid, but it's not a very intellectual newspaper either. Just gathers important information with colorful pics.
Their website is pretty good too: www.usatoday.com

See the Metropolitan. Eat in a good restaurant in Manhattan. Walk in the Central Park. Have coffee in a small coffee shop near NYU. Picture is near Central Park. I walked under the rain with a red umbrella. A girl followed me for half an hour. It was an interesting time.

Get More Bang for Your Buck

by madamx

Though New York is notoriously expensive, there are ways to enjoy the city for less cash. If you want to sightsee, you can purchase a City Pass -- it is only $65.00 ( if you saw all the attractions it would cost you about $130.00) and has tickets to 6 NYC attractions. You end up spending approximately 1/2 of what you would if you would have bought the tickets separately. Attractions include a 2-hour Circle Line Cruise of Manhattan, and the Empire State Building. (http://citypass.com/city/ny.html)

We found the 2 hour Circle Cruise saves you time as they will take you by the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island for a good look if that's all that you want, so you don't have to take the Staten Island Ferry.

If you're in NYC for a week, you can purchase an unlimited subway pass for one week, which costs $24.00; your feet will thank you!

A few museums also have days where it's free entry; check with the museum you want to visit. For example, the Museum of Modern Art is free Friday evenings; usual entry fee is $20.00

There are many healthy food options for tight budgets, such as: Go Sushi, Pax Wholesome Foods, and Whole Foods Market (see my restaurant tips). Food in Chinatown is relatively inexpensive as well.

Pearl River Mart in Soho is a great place to find some inexpensive gifts and souveniers to bring home. I found the best deals for t-shirts at La Guardia airport; around $20.00 and much better quality than at the souvenier shops around town. You can also get high-quality souvenier t-shirts from Century 21 for great prices as well.
