Presidents Day - Monday Feb 21st.

by Caddy

Just realized that our first full day in NYC will be Presidents Day.

How will this affect us? Will shops, restaurants etc be closed? What about tourist attractions such as the Empire State, Liberty Island? The museums?

Will there be any special celebrations?

Everything will be open, in fact it's a big sale day at department stores.

The Met is normally closed Mondays, but is actually open that Monday.
Things will be more crowded that weekend.

Practically a normal day, except government offices, banks and the stock market is closed. Check museum web sites to see if they are open or closed.

If you like shopping, there will sales at every store. Because it is a holiday, with most offices closed and their employees out-and-about these stores will be crowded.

For your tourist activities you will be fine; everything will be open, check web pages for museums, if you plan to attend one.

That's great to know! Here on a public holiday pretty much everything shuts down and shops are on 'Sunday Trading' i.e. reduced opening hours.

Some kids are out of school that Monday and enjoying the long weekend with their parents so some places you visit might be more crowded than usual. (e.g. Statue of Liberty, Top of the Rock, Empire State building, museums, etc.)

Travel Tips for New York City

Getting Broadway Tickets

by jumpingnorman

My wife wanted to bring our 5-year old twins to Broadway, so i checked on prices on-line for Little Mermaid but I saw prices over $100...so I just asked a friend in NY to buy the tickets for us and she was able to get them for $70.

But upon research on VT, it seems that I got on the wrong website. Advance discount tickets can be found at another website instead: www.broadway.com (how simple, hehehe)

Also, you can fall in queue (sometimes 2 hours queue) in half-price booths that can be found in New York City like the TKTS on Times Square, the South Street Seaport or at the Kennedy Center (for both Broadway and Off-Broadway shows).

The kids loved Little Mermaid, but I did not go with them because I took a flight to Iceland instead for a few days, hehehe...but the thing is I have not watched a Broadway show myself (as of yet) because I like the outdoors more. But soon I will watch an opera as I read VTer Nemorino's pages (an avid opera-goer)...

The Capital of the World

by batto

Huh, it is hard to decide where to go with someone who had never been to NYC... Probably everywhere. Start with Port Authority Bus Station, than to Broadway, than to Times Square, than to Empire State, than to Greenwich Village. The best thing in NY is to catch spirit of the city, of the people who lived there. So it is good thing to go on different places, not just on turistic spots than to some less romantic and famous places and spent some time in caffes, on the street, book stores (Strand is the BEST), day and night and that is it. It is funny to go with common people on Staten Island Ferry, it is cool to buy hot dogs for 50C per each on 8th Avenue, it is awesome to spend night in some pub in Greenvich village or eat pizza in some restaurant in Little Italy. And after all to get on the top of Empire State Building and realize that you are in the center of the World! I will miss all my life that atmosphere on city streets, beautifull girls with style like nowhere in the world and dusk in Central Park. And loitering on Washington Square.

Brooklyn Bridge

by kucha

Grab a 'big beer' from the South Street Seaport on a Friday afternoon in the summer and walk across the Brooklyn Bridge.If you're really motivated, keep walking through Brooklyn heaading toward Atlantic Avenue. Have a wonderful dinner in one of the many Lebanese restaruants along Atlantic Avenue. Walk off all the calories on the way back to the city. Consider stopping at the landing in Brooklyn Heights for a stunning view of the nightime Manhattan skyline. This was a wonderful activity on a wam summer afternoon, after a long days work.

New York City Tip

by miaou

Let's admit it: New York City is intense! Dazzling neon lights flash at Times Sqaure; the theaters are world class; the museums have a collection Sotheby's and Christie drool for; the nightlife reaches till dawn; the locals have an air of confidence that seems impenetrable and above all she proved to be one of the earliest cities to embrace multicultural harmony.

You Are Here!

by nicolettart

There is no mistaking it when you have arrived in NYC!! By day you will be awestruck by the skyscrapers. At night the bright lights will "blind" you, it is really that bright, especially if you go to Times Square.
