Hi all, we are travelling to New York next week.
This question is probably asked all the time but are we best buying tickets to attractions before we go, or whilst we are there?
There are tickets you must get in advance:
SoL - if there are any left at this very late date
Tenement Museum - ditto
Broadway shows - a whole topic depending on on which shows you want
Observatories and 911 Museum tickets should be bought in advance - or you risk waiting in VERY long ticket buyers line - but you can usually get a couple of days in advance
If interested in baseball tickets should also get those in advance.
Other sights you can go without advance tickets - but some will also take a long wait for tickets on the spot
