It’s official – in May I will be in New York City for six days!
Don’t worry, New Yorkers – I’ll do my best not to be an annoying tourist. I’ll treat the sidewalk as I would a street – if I want to stop, I will step to the side first. Of all the “annoying tourist habits” that I’ve tried to find, that one seems to be number one on the list. I know you’re busy and have places to be.
Someday I want to take a trip to New York with the sole purpose of enjoying theatre. That will not be this trip, although I do hope to fit in at least a couple of shows.
There are a few things I’ve gotten out of the way on a previous trip: Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, Ground Zero, Grant’s Tomb, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, St. John’s Cathedral, and the Met, just to name a few. The one thing that I want to add to my agenda this time is Ellis Island. Visiting Ellis Island is about the only other thing in New York that I feel like I need to visit. I’d like to see the New York Stock Exchange, but if I don’t – I won’t feel bad about it.
I am also looking forward to eating! Best pizza, best burger, best bakery, best cup of coffee…just load me down!!
So really, this trip comes down to three things: Theatre, Ellis Island, and Food.
Any annoying tourist tips, theatre tips, or food tips? Please comment!!
