Thanks so much!
I am staying at Ritz- Carlton- no idea if it's up or downtown. Now, don't get me wrong- I myself have limited income; it's the person that I take care of, that is well-off
I'll be coming Monday night and leaving Wed morning; I have Tuesday all by myself, from, say 10 in the morning till night; whenever this person decides to check in for the night, I gotta be there to help him.
Are u saying that there are shows during the day? do u have any websites?
I'll do the ESB, the ferry boat, Little Italy and Times Squares; does this sound feasable? Maybe a show? if I can get more info
but no shopping for me; I am 40 and somewhere along last 10 years, I lost the patience / interest/whatever
Is it safe to walk about during the day? taking cab rides? Funny, I assume it's pretty safe, but again what do I know?
Can u really hail cabs? reminds me of old times back home; I was born and bred in Europe: not done here in Austin
Thanks a million!
1. The Ritz is in Midtown, near times square which is the heart of midtown, knowing what part of the city the events are in is good whether they r downtown, midtown, uptown, the village etc... it helps!
2.Ticketmaster.com for tickets, citysearch.com ( great website) for things to do. circleline.com for ferry tickets click on schedules and scrool down 2 see prices, nyctours.com is a good site also.
3. Little Italy, Times square, Chinatown, etc.. are all free u only pay to get there whether by cab or subway which yes u do have to hail just like old times. subway is $2 in each direction you'll have 2 buy a metrocard if u plan on taking the train or bus.
4. Manhattan is very busy in the day especially if your in Midtown u will see so its o.k 2 walk around in the day, in the night its probably better to be off the street u know just for safety reasons none in particular
