I am going back to the mainland in June. Tossing around a plan to make it to NYC. I wont have much time, but thinking about driving in and getting in the evening, spending 1 full day exploring, spend night in hotel again, fly out next day, then wife drive to meet her family (she is staying mainland a little longer to see her side of family).
This is on topic because this map will be VERY useful!
Also, needs some help with the logistics of it all. Should I drive all the way into manhattan and stay at a hotel there (and if I do what is a good recommendation, really only requirement is some places to eat around it and somewhat near a subway station) or should I get a hotel out of town (or in Jersey) in basically commute in for the day.
I plan on taking my wife to MOMA, she wants to see central park too both of which work well for me being able to check out construction. I want to see the Hudson Yards and WTC. She will probably want to go to times square. I think doing top of the rock and and 1 WTC observation decks would do it.
Does all of this sound feasible?
