4 day NYC visit: what are some must do’s
I’ll be spending 4 days in NYC in a month. Don’t really care if they are touristy things but I just want to plan the days out before getting overwhelmed. Also any food recommendations are welcomed. So far my plan is as follows:

Day 1: 9/11 memorial and One World Trade Center, Wall Street, Grand Central Station Terminal, top of the ROC, explore midtown/times square

Day 2: Statue of Liberty, Bronx Zoo, Museum of Modern Art

Day 3: Metropolitan Museum of Art, Central Park, Broadway show

Day 4: Highline, Brooklyn Bridge.......

I'm taking the fam there in 10 days and our itinerary
is similar to yours. The only thing we are adding is
a Yankees game when the Stros are in town.

ETA: Museum of Natural History and then Nathans hot dogs in Central Park is also on the list.

I have no idea how you’re going to fit all of that into two days. Not being a pessimist, but that’s a whole hell of a lot to try and accomplish in a short timeframe.

We like starting the day early so we’ll head to 9/11 memorial around 8. From what I understand Wall Street is near by. We are staying like a block away from grand central so exploring that shouldn’t be to difficult, along with the ROC. Exploring midtown/Times Square is just a time waster. As far as day 2 goes, we may not do museum of modern art and just replace that with Times Square

I've been advised to go to Times Square and take a few pics and then quickly move on.

Holy frick, we need a definitive NYC thread. Not sure anything will get close to what you’ve done for Boston, but dayum we’ve had a shitload of NYC threads on here lately.

We're doing this to save time instead of actually going to Ellis island and the statue of liberty.

YUP. They're all over the place. Quick Google search of "NYC TigerDroppings" or "New York City TigerDroppings" will result in a few-dozen threads.

To be fair, you see how much it took just to cover Boston. And that’s not even nearly everything. Just the highlights. Imagine the work it would take to properly cover everything New York offers.

do the statue of liberty on the first day when you're already downtown.

Getting from the very southern tip of manhattan to the middle of the Bronx will take you some time.

Just got back from a family trip to NYC.
If you plan on hitting 9/11 Memorial, Empire State Building, Top of the Rock, museums I would suggest the NYC CityPass. You can also take a boat ride around Manhattan that goes right by Statue of Liberty - it’s about a 2 hour ride around. One price gets access to all these with separate ticket lines. It worked great for the 4 of us.

Top of the Rock at night is best.

Buy a Subway Metro that is good for unlimited rides for 7 days - around $35 but all can use it. Just pass it back after swiping. (Single ride pass is $3 each - metro card with dollar amount is $2.75 per ride) UPDATE - I was wrong on the 7 day pass- it locks out for 18 minutes after each swipe.

Our daughters are 13 and 10. We visited Serendipity 3 for dessert (recommended on here).
They are still craving the Frozen Hot Chocolate!
The Sugar Factory was also great for over sized desserts.

Grand Central is great to people watch and cool off.

We walked across the Brooklyn Bridge - do it early in morning to avoid some of the crowd. We made the mistake of doing it on Saturday afternoon- mad house.

How did you manage that? Your card is locked out for 18 minutes after you swipe it.

We were refilling our card with dollar amounts each day.
Last day we were 2 rides short on the card. A lady over heard us discussing the refill for 2 rides. She told us not to worry about it and swiped her card 2 times for my wife and daughter. We just assumed it was the 7 day card. Proves now she was even nicer than we originally thought.
Sorry if I confused anyone and thanks for the heads up - I updated my original post

Try Jacobs Pickle it’s a great restaurant that locals go to not far from the west side of Central Park.
