So... we have 7 days in NYC and I'm planning to do it in sections!! 5 days in Manhattan, one in Jackson Heights, out to Citi Field and a day in Brooklyn.
The day will start whenever we're up and at 'em..... depending on what happens the night before!!
We're staying at Eastgate Towers ( 39th St, a couple blocks from Grand Central Terminal ). So from GC take the 4 to Borough Hall and go to the Visitor Info Centre for maps.. more ideas etc. From there I think we can get the 2,3 or 4 to Grand Army Plaza.. get out have a wander about ( St Johns Place looks like it's got some gorgeous buildings ). Make our way to the 7th Ave subway and get the Q to Prospect Park stop.
Walk across the park, taking lots of pics... the Terrace Bridge looks absolutely beautiful!! anything else in there a great photo op? come out of park around 11th/12th St's and find Cafe Grumpy on 7th Ave.. we'll be ready for it by then!!
Make our way to 5th Ave.. zigzagging up st's wherever our feet take us.... walk up 5th Ave to Atlantic Terminal.
Here ( since it will be on a Saturday ) we'll find the Flea Market at One Hanson and DSW for awesome shoes!!! I've been told De kalb St has some great architecture? From Atlantic T, or Nevins St if we want to walk more we'll get the 2/3 to Clark St.
Wander aimlessly taking in the Promenade/DUMBO area... Jacques Torres for Hot Choc.... multiple bars/cafes/shops etc.. whatever we see!!!
Walk back over the Brooklyn Bridge!!! Don't know what happens next, probably fall in a heap at hotel!!
Given it will be Feb and really cold I'm imagining this could take all day... 8am to 8pm possibly... with lots of browsing and sidetracking.
Do you think this can be done?? Will we freeze to death ( given we live in a place that is 27C.. ummm 90F??? in winter!!!)???? Toooooo much walking?? Anything else in the area we should try to see?
One last question... is it relatively flat?? Don't really want to be climbing hills all day!!!
