Day 2 - New York


Start out downtown today, at South Street Seaport, where you can enjoy being outside and pick up half-price tickets to Broadway shows at the TKTS booth (with far shorter lines than at the Times Square branch). Then take the scenic walk over the Brooklyn Bridge, eat what many say is the city’s best pizza at Grimaldi’s, and stroll along the Brooklyn Heights Promenade for great views of the Manhattan skyline. At night, head to Times Square and the Broadway show of your choice at a theater like the Richard Rogers Theatre.

Day 3 - New York, Bronx


Mix the best of fine art and sports on your third day in the city. Begin your day at the Metropolitan Museum of Art before taking a leisurely stroll and maybe having a picnic in Central Park. At game time, head up to Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. Instead of filling up on hot dogs, save room for soul food at Sylvia’s in Harlem. Finally, take the subway down to Greenwich Village for some drinks and bowling at the multi-level Bowlmor Lanes.
